For the rank beginner. Learn the nuts and bolts of oil painting. You do not need any experience for this class. You will not need any materials for the first class which we will devote to looking at the materials list together, I will show you examples so you have first hand knowledge before going to the art supply store. From there we will lean about paint handling techniques one step at a time. We will begin in black and white and then move on to working with a restricted color palette. Lessons include: value, form, opacity, temperature, paint handling, composition, etc. Our subject matter will be simple still life. Please note that we do not use toxic solvents to thin our paints and clean our brushes, only refined linseed oil and soap.
