My gallery oils


With today's busy, hectic and rushing lifestyle, we all need to take time out.  Art will bring pleasure, relaxation and a type of therapy to take one away from the world we live in today.  A time to take for oneself to just get away and enjoy. 


My name is  J e n n i f e r  C r u d e n being a full-time artist, painting with oils mostly on a larger scale, the New Zealand landscape, and having a love of resin art.   View my art via the mountain image shown.

I enjoy passing on the knowledge I have gained over the past years to others.  Enabling attendees at these art workshops to learn and take pleasure from what art has to offer, hoping each individual will find that 'zone' which we as artists are able to achieve, taking us to a place of calm and peace, where time does not seem to exist. 

Be with other creative people to have a wonderful time enjoying one another's company as well as learning new skills.   





A note for all regarding my resin workshops ...

The substrates provided to you to paint on  for the sessions will be given, by myself, one or two prior coatings before you use.   Although not done by many, as I do this for my own professional work, I feel I also wish to provide a better service to all attendees and therefore spend the time to undertake this for you.    I  personally just feel that the little bit 'extra' I do will pass on to yourselves as well, and for you to be happy with the service which I provide.

Thank you.
regards Jennifer



oil painting workshop - 1 day or a 3 DAY workshop 

Offered are both a one day workshop as well as a three day one.     The one day is fast paced and covers much of what one will need as a beginner or perhaps self-taught. A lot of information packed into one day.      

Covered in the 3-day oil painting workshop (Some art materials are supplied-  
Paints, colour mixing, mediums, supports, painting techniques, mediums, undertake the bistre / imprematura (wipe-out) method. Also undertake and complete paintings.  Ideal workshop to ensure you are doing the 'right thing' when using your oil paints. 

This 3-day will give you confidence to go ahead with painting in oils, imparting knowledge on how to mix colours to save on money being spent on every colour of the rainbow.  Why give to retailers when you can mix and are able to make your own colours?
