Overcoming Obstacles to Work in Oils

Whether it’s about well-being or tradition, many artists are uncertain about using oil paints. Yet oils are generous, forgiving, and welcoming, and can be handled without solvents or smell. In this workshop, participants will use artists’ oil colours in ways that are non-toxic and safe while deepening their artistic practice. The workshop explores materials, application methods, and ways of approaching the paint, in sessions that allow for each person’s individuality.

The first day’s focus will be on still life and the workshop will develop from there according to participants’ interests, and all subjects are welcome. Emphasis will be on colour, light and creating a convincing painted environment, rather than an exact reproduction. If students have specific themes they want to explore, such as objects, photographs, or ideas, please bring them to class.

As this a five-day workshop, students will have the opportunity to develop their composition and planning skills, find ways of mark-making that are personal and relevant, try a range of tools, and make and build on mistakes and accidents. With uninterrupted time away from the demands of ordinary life, participants will focus on their artwork and their personal responses to ideas, and will return to their regular studio practice with fresh viewpoints and ways of perceiving.
