Getting into Oils (Wednesday Eve)
Getting into Oils with Abramo Papp
This short 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 investigate oil paint. The course will cover the basic oil painting techniques of painting in layers: starting with a toned ground; followed by a thin under-painting; one or more opaque finishing layers, glazes 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 an existing acrylic painting into a finished work in oils.
Wednesdays, 26 April to 21 June, 6.30 – 9.30pm (9 weeks)
