12th & 13th April 2018
10am – 4pm Cost £120
Whether you are a complete beginner or more accomplished artist, this two day Oil Masterclass is aimed at giving you an insight into building and developing a successful painting process resulting in vibrant and painterly pieces. Oil paint is sometimes seen as 'complex' to use and perhaps even daunting. The two-day course will teach foolproof skills and methods in order to dispel the myths and enigma surrounding this 'medium of the Masters'. So if you'd like to learn, re-learn, or re-visit the magic of oil painting this will fulfil that desire.
From laying down a grounding or under-painting, drawing-out and blocking-in, how putting in 'darks' allows the light to be seen. Which brushes to use, to get what result, and making marks for a painterly result. Which colours to use on your palette, how to mix and gain insight and knowledge into using oils in a positive and confident manner - the methodology and the process.
You will have the luxury of two days with Max Hale, award winning artist and very experienced teacher. He will share with you his love for this medium and how to use it without fear. In turn you can quiz him about all the tips and tricks that will turn you into a confident oil painter. Using a selection of different subjects drawn from photographs and still life and learn how to make your paintings vibrant and expressive.
In all of Max’s courses his main objective is to build confidence and bring your artistic aspirations in line with your newly found know-how.
