This course will focus on the classical techniques and processes of oil painting, covering drawing, ground preparation, underpainting and glazes. Through a series of set projects you will gain a better understanding of tone, colour, painting technique and application. You will work from still life, the model and historical material, with scope for personal work and experimentation. Each project will be held over some weeks to allow for more in-depth work. You will explore mixing and creating materials and painting mediums and have the opportunity to try out complementary media like tempera.
