Traditional Drawing and Oil Painting



5 - 10




This is a full day workshop during which we will be painting a crashing wave in oils.

This workshop is also good for beginners that want to experiment using oil paints. You will have a brief introduction about oil painting and materials that we will be using. We will also talk about landscape painting and the approach.

You do not need to buy any materials as I will be providing them.

Half way through we will have a 30 min break. Lunch is not included.

You'll learn how to understand colour:
- New concepts of the colour theory and mixing: its application in the landscape
- Observing and painting seascapes in oils, composition and creating depth using colour, tone and perspective
- Using underpainting and layering of paint while blending colours to create beautiful colours


I will do my best to run all scheduled classes. Workshops must have a minimum of 5 participants. In the event that a class is cancelled, students will be notified via email and entitled to a full refund.
