This class is designed for those new to oil painting. We will begin by making our own value scales (black and white) and then color wheels. Composition and paint application will be explored as we paint a basic still life in black and white (learn how to apply the paint to the canvas and create a pleasing design). Lastly, a color mixing class followed by a simple still life in full color concentrating on brushwork. This class is not only for beginners but for those who wish to explore the basics further. Please contact Jackie with any questions or to register:
