Event Details

This workshop is an introduction to oil painting. It will cover basic techniques, paint and mixing, colour and brush strokes, and all the tools and tips that you need to enjoy working in oils.

We will supply everything you need if you do not have oil paints already, but if you do, it may be helpful to use your own as well as ours. If you can come with a few brushes that would be good too.

Oil paints are easier to use than acrylic. They do not dry in the same way, and the rich colours can be laid down over each other, and built up into textures. Before the 1960’s when acrylic paint arrived, the majority of artists used oil paint or watercolour. It is very hard to make the effects that interest many painters without using oils. This workshop should give you confidence to explore.
