Ros’s oil painting workshop is our first workshop for the year, on 1st and 2nd April. There are still places available so don’t delay in registering for this workshop if you would like to learn from a nationally acclaimed artist and tutor. For further details and to register, go to our Workshops page.
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.
After we finished our paintings, Mark gave us a quick demo of his methods with another painting.
