Brave Boat Harbor by Tom Glover


This class will be covering some of the rudimentary issues of painting in oils. Through examination of old masters to present day artists we will tackle some of the fundamentals of paint mixing, color intensity, composition, and paint application techniques. Using observation and practice we will take instruction from a variety of artists as we examine their techniques and handling of the medium. We will talk about setting up and customizing palettes; properties of paint and painting mediums; brush types, framing ideas, as well as discussing different canvas qualities and substrates for painting on. This is a class for beginners and those who may want to refresh and re-focus, bringing things back to the basics. There will be a value study, discussion of color, still life work, demonstrations of blending, glazing, scumbling, washes, and preparing surfaces to paint on. Gamsol is the only thinner used at Sanctuary Arts.
