An opportunity for students to create a painting of a life model, exploring an expressive way of painting with oils.
Beginning with a series of very quick oil sketches of the figure, we will get used to working freely with oil paint, treating it as an adaptable and spontaneous medium. While working from observation, colour and tone will be considered as well as the properties of oil paint and how to mix a palette of colours. Students will then embark on a sustained painting imbued with the energy and freshness of the morning’s sketches. The tutor will encourage an awareness of composition and the confidence to rework your painting as it progresses.
