With Roger Jones
If you are just starting out with oils or are more experienced, and want to develop a surer approach and personal style, this course will give you all you need to know.
Understanding variations in tone, those patterns of light and dark, and using them as a basis for your painting is a vital first step towards convincing and appealing work. The resulting well composed underpainting invites 'painting by numbers'; well almost!
We will explore my seven essentials to painting, which include two particular paint handling and brushwork skills.
Reference pictures, original paintings will guide us and there are notes and demonstrations for you to keep.
You Will Need:-
SOLVENTS
Ideally English distilled turpentine, or low odour Sansodor.
White spirit, glass jars for brush cleaning, and rags etc (for painting !) will be provided.
PAINTS
Ideally WINSOR & NEWTON ARTISTS QUALITY, in 37 ml tubes or smaller depending on your budget.
