First Workshop in the New Studio!

My first workshop at the Center for Kids Who Can't Paint Good went swimmingly.  The workshop was four days long and three of the days started off with slideshow.  We focused on getting a feel for the medium, starting off with a couple of drybrush exercises before moving onto monochrome painting and colour mixing.  I believe that proper oil painting depends on a heavy-duty foundation in drawing, but in a beginner's oil painting class, ain't nobody got time for that.  Instead we learned some oil transferring techniques and for the final exercise in colour we used a grid to help us out.

I'm offering this workshop again in March, so get in touch if you're interested!
