I believe good painting flows from a fine balance between keen observation and creative confidence. This workshop will focus on three main components of oil painting: the material (oil paint as a medium), the technique (application of oil paint) and the painter (creative impulse). We will visit different aspects of oil painting, covering materials and mediums, brush strokes, tonal values, colour theory, perspective and proportions.
The workshop includes 10 lessons of 3 hours each and will take place on the Tuesday of each week (i.e. 4th, 11th, 18th, 25th Sept, 2nd, 9th, 16th, 23rd, 30th Oct, 6th Nov 2018). The workshop will only be offered if I have enough interest to make it viable. There are limited places available which ensures special attention to each individual. The total amount of R2400  is payable up front. Tea and coffee are included. I am bilingual so the lessons will be in both Afrikaans and English.
