Here you can see what was produced.  It was a fantastic workshop and I was glad the students enjoyed my food.

 Oil Paint Techniques 15 and 16 December 2014


I have these two days to squeeze in a late workshop for those of you who like quick results whilst learning new techniques in oils. 

In total we will produce 4 small and easy works of art, which you can use for Christmas gifts if you don’t want to keep them yourself.  And you will learn different fun and innovative ways of painting.  Paintings are pre-drawn so you won’t have to worry about timing and beginners won’t have to be concerned.  Bring a friend or simply enjoy two days of creating and enjoying.  Beautiful Frames will be available for your paintings.

9 am:                      We meet and start our first project – that of underpainting, then wet onto wet oils.

12 pm:                   Lunch outside

1pm:                       Our next project involves palette knife painting.  Learn the tricks of controlling your knife to create a beautiful little painting.
