Introductory Oil Painting with Abramo Papp


This course is for people who would like to venture into oils either as raw beginners or those who are painting in acrylics and want to move on. The course will cover the classical oil painting techniques of painting in layers: starting with a toned ground; followed by a thin under-painting; one or more opaque finishing layers, glazing and finally varnishing. Over the course students will complete several small works exploring the various techniques and mediums for applying the layers including scumbling, drybrush, alla prima and impasto. For those who have painted in acrylics there is the opportunity to covert some existing acrylic paintings into a finished works in oils.


Wednesdays, 4 October to 29 November, 6:30 – 9:30pm (9 weeks).
