Next workshop: Oils: Painting with Knives!
For this course we are really going to be exploiting the wonderfully expressive nature of oil paint. Working on landscape, seascape and other textural subjects, we will be looking at the application of almost undiluted oil paint with painting knives (the cranked handle variety, often wrongly referred to as palette knives), with the absolute minimum of brushwork. If you have ever wished to 'loosen up', now's your chance; it's impossible to be too tight working in this way! In addition, we will explore colour mixing, both on the palette and directly on the board, employing the use of a colour wheel, some basic colour theory and a limited palette. This course is suitable for all levels of experience.
