Oil Painting Weekend

Sunday 20th July, 2014

10:30am - 4:30pm

Price: £68.00

Ages: Adults

Lecturer: Alison Kusner 

Work with artist Alison Kusner to learn the basic techniques of painting with oils. In the morning you will create study sheets to get used to the medium, learning how to work from dark to light, form rich tones and glazes, use brushes and palette knives, create texture, and how to prepare a colour ground on primed paper. In the afternoon you will sketch from the fabulous landscapes and seascapes seen throughout the museum before creating your own ideal scene in oil paint on a primed canvas board. NB: As oil paint takes weeks to dry properly - it is advisable to bring a box to take the finished painting home.
