Still life painting is a perfect way to learn all the different elements of oil painting from life. You will paint using the sight-size technique, exploring ways of depicting form, light, texture and atmosphere. You will be shown how oil paint can be used in layers to create paintings with depth and subtlety.

Aims of this Course

Over the week you will paint a few “alla prima” exercises which focus on particular aspects of painting, as well as producing two still life paintings which will be painted over multiple days.

The course will cover:

  • ​Colour theory
  • Values
  • Edges
  • Composition
  • Technical considerations of indirect painting

The Facilities

The Workshop Room is located within the main studio, allowing for the use of the facilities of the full-time school.
