The Next Step, Course II

Once you have been introduced to oil painting with the very basics of course I, your dilemma is what to do next. Course II will cover the next step.

The first of the two days will be a painting using a restricted palette. You will learn about mixing to create new colours.

Day two will be a painting thinking about the tones of different colours. This is an exciting and surprising day with you thinking about your own palette.

You will need your own equipment for these two days. A delicious light lunch will be provided, and essential coffee and tea throughout the day.
