‘Still life painting, in oil from life for beginners’

June 20 @ 10:00 am - June 21 @ 4:00 pm

– £170

The course is designed for total beginners, those seeking a ‘refresher’ or those who are new to oils. The course is structured with demonstrations at each step of the process.

In this course Francesca will set up a still life of summer fruits with a dark background. You will learn how to start a painting, how to paint from life, how to use oil paint, basic palette and mediums. Francesca is happy to discuss ideas if you have a subject in mind; you are also welcome to bring your own subject (provided she can check it before hand)

The course is £170
you will need to bring:

A still life subject (Francesca can provide)
Brush’s- a minimum of four brushes ideally size 0,2,4 suitable for oil painting. (My preference is square long flat)
One 12x16inch (or similar) canvas or board ready for oil paint.
A Palette

Please note that places will not be secured until the £60 deposit has been paid.
