Oil Painting

This 3 day course will provide you with all the knowledge and skills that you need to take your painting outside with confidence. The course includes a thorough explanation of the equipment needed to paint outside ‘en plein air’, including how to adapt your indoor painting practice to the challenges of the great outdoors. You will learn how to select a scene, set up your equipment in a suitable painting spot and then simplify the image. Your tutor will demonstrate techniques to suggest the complexities of nature, allowing you to work quickly and expressively to overcome the challenge of changing light and weather. Painting outside can be a daunting and exhilarating experience. Once you’ve shared this experience with like minded people under the guidance of an experienced tutor you won’t look back!
