Learn to paint a life-like close-up of a flower bloom in a step-by-step method.
You will learn techniques on colour mixing, under-painting, correct layering of oil paint, medium use, saturation, colour, contrast, brush techniques and much more. The under-painting layers will be in acrylic paint and the final layer in oil paint to get the most depth and realistic-looking painting. The outcome from the class will be a large oil painting (similar to the one below) that will be ready to hang from your wall to wow friends and family.
Your course fee includes a take-home kit including oil paints, brushes and medium. You should bring your own square stretched canvas minimum size 20 x 20 inches and no greater than 23 x 23 inches (or 50 x 50 cm to 60 x 60cm) to fit our easels. Tutor Eleshea recommends Expression canvases with a 3/4 inch depth frame which you can buy at Gordon Harris. You'll also need to bring a few basic supplies from home (we'll email these to you).
We expect students will gain foundational knowledge about contrast, realism, depth of colour, mixing oil paints and a variety of brush techniques. You will also leave with your own completed floral canvas, and knowledge of how to recreate this at home. Students will be working from a photo supplied by the tutor.
Absolute beginners to intermediate level painters. We also welcome experienced painters looking to get motivated to complete a painting in a short period of time.
