Join Rob Pollien at Artwaves Studio for an introductory series of structured oil painting exercises. Artists of all levels of experience are welcome, although the course is recommended for artists new to oil painting or returning after a long absence.
Starting with simple value and color painting studies in oil, we will progress quickly toward more complex painting problems. Attention will be given to sound studio fundamentals and helping the students learn, grow and become comfortable with the medium.
Materials required: Titanium White, yellow ochre, permanent red violet, ultramarine blue, burnt sienna, Turpenoid or odorless solvent for brush cleaning, paper towels, nitrile (or similar) gloves. And a few No. 4 and No. 6 natural bristle flat brushes, disposable or other palette, palette knife. canvas pad, 10 sheets 14-by-18 or similar. A drawing board for your sheets of canvas may also be helpful.
Easels are provided but if you have a portable easel that you like, you are welcome to bring it. Artwaves will supply tape, rags, paper towels, aprons.
