Oil Painting Bootcamp

In this one-day workshop at Rebeca’s studio, we’ll review the basics of oil painting, including materials and techniques, with an emphasis on safer practices. We’ll learn how to begin a multi-session oil painting, how to pick good pigments for our palette, when to use oil and when to use turps as we paint simple still lives. The first half of this class is devoted to the exploration of various brushes and pigments by painting very small paintings. The second half introduces the student to thinking in layers, to limited palettes, and to the differences between an alla prima and a multi-session painting.
