In this class students learn the medium of oil paint and its unique characteristics by experimenting with color mixing and using specific techniques to achieve varying effects in paintings. The class will explore gestural brush strokes, dripping and layering with an emphasis on drawing as well as lighting and shadowing. Students are encouraged to develop their own style. A supply list will be sent to registered students.
