From the Ground Up: Live Online 5-Day Oil Painting Workshop
February 24-28 2022 11am-3pm PST
I am excited to announce my first live workshop in a 1.5 years! Immerse yourself in a fun and informative week of painting with the 5-day From the Ground Up: a process-based oil painting online workshop.
You will earn how to build an oil painting from the ground up with practical tips, feedback, instructor demos, and plenty of hands-on painting time. With a focus on the process rather than the outcome, you will begin a painting and work from imprimatura to final paint application. This is a great way to strengthen your painting skills, learn a different approach if you’ve been feeling stuck, or jump in to oil painting as a beginner. All painting levels welcome! Particularly well suited to intermediate painters.
This workshop is also available as a pre-recorded course, for you to work through at your own pace.
Free Painting Demo: Colour Mixing for Skin Tones February 18 11am-12:30pm PST
Register here with Opus Art Supplies.
Have you ever struggled to mix and paint believable skin tones with oils?
Like much of painting, there is no magic bullet for painting skin – which is what makes it fun! Multiple techniques and considerations work in tandem to create the illusion of fleshy, realistic skin.
In this demonstration, I will work on an 11″x14″ (approx.) figurative painting using a photo reference while discussing colour mixing topics, including:
- how to see and interpret colour in skin
- considerations for different skin tones
- creating a sense of volume
- paint application
- the hierarchy of colour temperature and value
- & more!
I will work with a direct painting approach (no glazing). Attendees will be able to see the photo reference, the palette, and the painting itself. Questions are welcomed!
