Materials

A two day intensive course in which you gain a knowledge and understanding of the components of an artists’ palette and working materials. 

It includes priming and stretching of canvases, an insight into the compounds and properties of different paints and an explanation on the use of mediums at various stages of oil painting.  You will grind pigment, make your own paint, stretch a cotton canvas and varnish a painting you have previously completed (min 6months drying time).  We give a historical background to the materials you use today and recommendations on the best practice with current painting and medium trends.
