PAINT LOOSE AND FREE USING WATER-MIXABLE OILS
Saturday & Sunday
March 27th & 28th, 2021
This workshop will be an opportunity for students to use water-mixable oils, which will be provided. This medium has such versatility and is a great way for watercolorists, oil and acrylic painters to experience this medium without great expense. This class will focus on how to paint an early morning landscape from beginning to end. Early morning colors are cool and late afternoon colors are warm. You will learn how to mix colors to achieve a dynamic feeling of the moment, how to understand perspective, to paint trees and grass, to paint without creating mud and to use the color wheel to your advantage. You will gain an understanding of the five basic steps to painting.
Students will receive a landscape picture to work from. Paints will be provided. Students will need to bring paper towels, brushes (suggest Pro stroke #2 and #4, Creative Mark palette knife T25 or similar items. These may be found at Jerry’s Artarama website.) Canvas 11"x14" or 16"x20".
