Oil on Linen, Manet

If you want to refrech your skills learn new technique or try your hand at oils for the first time this is the workshop for you. This workshop offers an introduction to the grisaille and underpainting techniques. These techniques are paramount to understanding all forms of painting, whether classical or contemporary. Learn to develop your brushwork and to practice the creation of texture, tone, weight, shadow, temperature and focus, all in one tone on day 1 and in white and 1 color on the second day. Mastery of the grisaille and underpainting techniques develop the artist’s ability to sketch in oil painting quickly and to render flesh, landscapes and still lifes with skill and beautiful brushwork.

The workshop includes live demonstration by Eoin Llewellyn, as well as ongoing assistance with your work and answers to any questions that arise as you are painting over the 2 days. The workshop hours (10:00-16:00 includes a one-hour break for lunch).

When you complete this workshop or if you are currently painting with oils we would recommend you attend the 12 hour painting/drawing package on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays or Saturdays. In these sessions, you can develop your practice and focus on whatever subjects and techniques are of interest to you, either in contemporary or classical painting and drawing.
