OIL PAINTING TECHNIQUES
PRIVATE AND SEMI PRIVATE CLASSES
LEARN TRADITIONAL PAINTING TECHNIQUES MADE FASTER AND EASIER WITH UPDATED MATERIALS.
Many are intimidated by oil painting but, in fact, it has qualities that make it much easier to handle than water base paints: The quality in oil that causes it to dry slowly make the blends necessary when rendering 3-dimensional form much easier to achieve. New and updated materials allow oil painting without the associated odors and make it an acceptable activity in a home setting. Learn the basics of the medium and its safe usage. Make blends with oil paint and learn how these blends can be used to represent 3-dimensional forms as they are affected by light and shadow. See how the color of an object is influenced by light and shadow. By the end of the class you will be able to create a satisfyingly convincing painting of form in space. Materials list provided upon registration.
Happy Painters with Cynda Mary's School of Art
I teach two primary techniques of tradition western oil painting: underpainting/glazing and alla prima, or “wet into wet”.
You may schedule the classes any way you wish; once a week, once a month, everyday, or randomly, as long as you finish the session in 4 months.
