During this workshop we will paint a beach at sunset using an indirect method of painting. An indirect method of painting refers to building the painting in layers of paint, working “fat over lean” adding details and adjusting colors as one progress through the painting. This approach allows you to obtain more depth and detail in a painting.
The aim of these workshops is to help participants understand the use of color and how to develop a painting using multiple layers of paint while looking at composition, colour, tone, texture and edges.
We will start the day with a brief introduction on oil painting and materials that we are going to use. We will then introduce landscape painting and the methodology we are going to use to paint this painting.
We will then start working on the painting itself. We will first sketch the picture on the available canvas and start mixing colours. By the middle of the day we will finish the first stage of the painting.
Work-Shop will supply cheese platters and fruit to have during the break, as well as wine to have as you finish your artworks.
After the break we will continue where we left before and we will start adding more details to the painting. By the end of the day we will have a finished painting everyone will be happy to take home. Throw that artwork on your wall and expect family and friends to be amazed!
