The course is mostly Studio-based and you will be introduced to the techniques required to work in the beautiful and highly versatile medium of oil paint.  This medium is particularly suited to depicting the characteristics of the human portrait, still life and landscapes and each class will focus on a lead topic from the following: ​

  • Week 1 (Studio Based) The principles and history behind oil painting; practical preparatory studies of a still life subject. The Class will conclude with refreshments providing students with an opportunity to get to know each other.
  • Week 2 Preparing an underpainting in a tonal range; light, shade and shadows of the composition
  • Week 3       Developing the background and the local colours of the composition
  • Week 4       Building up the image with glazes in the shadow and half-tone areas
  • Week 5       Applying the highlights and refining the shapes
  • Week 6       More oil painting techniques such as sfumato and developing texture.  Evaluation and feedback

Classes will move at the pace of the students, with one to one feedback and advice from the tutor. Some degree of flexibility to this schedule may be applied. ​
