Class Size: 5-10

Description: 

Many find oil intimidating, but oil is the versatile painting medium. This class is designed for both beginners and more experienced painters–geared for anyone who wants to expand their understanding of painting.

We will investigate what color is and how to make it using a limited palette in oils.  Working mostly from studio set-ups, we will explore various applications and techniques using oil paint through observation associated with realistic painting –especially honing perceptual skills in the translation of three-dimensional forms to two-dimensional surfaces.

The basic elements of color, drawing, value, volume, space, texture, and overall composition will be explored.  We will develop an understanding of color relationships and the interactions of colors.  This will be a “solvent-free” class, using other techniques and mediums, as well as for cleaning brushes while working with oil paints. 

Prerequisites: None

Supplies:

  • Basic Palette (cool)
  • CERULEAN BLUE        
  • CADMIUM LEMON
  • ULTRAMARINE BLUE
  • ALIZARIN CRIMSON
  • TITANIUM WHITE (large tube)
  • WINSOR RED
  • YELLOW OCHRE
  • RAW UMBER
  • RAW SIENNA
  • ULTRAMARINE VIOLET
  • Naples yellow (can be mixed -yellow ochre, white, yellow)
  • VIRIDIAN
  • Magenta (can be mixed -red, white, ultramarine blue)

 

  • Galkyd, Liquin (wax optional), Neo Megilp, (liquin works the best with the wax – galkydand neo megilp don’t need the wax) 
  • Bar of soap (ie. lava), rags or good quality paper towels (I like the blue automotive towels), baby oil (preferred) or safflower oil (clean up)
  • Enamel, glass, or disposable palette.  (Dollar store baking sheets, glass plates also work well)
  • Palette knife.
  • painter’s tape
  • Brushes- various sizes (ie. 2,4,6,8,10,12,14) …Brights or filberts. A couple of rounds maybe be useful.  Sable, Sable essence, natural white bristle or Synthetic mixed brushes are recommended.
  • Painting supports and surfaces: various sized canvas (stretched or unstretched), canvas panel, gessoed cardboard or arches, or a pad of ARCHES oil paper for beginning pieces. (I suggest 8” x 10” or 12” x 16” max…square surfaces are good too!) Since this is a workshop, much of what we will be doing is considered studies, so inexpensive surfaces are fine!)

NOTE: solvents (gamsol,turpentine, turpenoid etc…) are not necessary! Oil brushes can cleaned with baby oil, and soap and water. Well cleaned brushes will last until you wear them out!
