Mark Redzic’s oil painting workshop

Our first workshop, with Mark Redzic, was a great success – all of us enjoyed the day and felt we had made progress with our oil painting.

Mark’s first demo and our exercise taught us to combine two photographs to create a unique painting. We started by blocking in shapes and establishing correct tonal values and colour for aerial perspective, so that we had a very rough but convincing painting – especially when viewed from a distance!

We learned how to ensure we have a centre of interest for the painting and how to mix colours, as well as many practical tips about materials and methods.

Delicious cake, biscuits and tea and coffee helped us maintain our stamina.
