All you need...

 On Hold

Time -   9.00 am to 5.00 pm +/-
Papakura - 2-days 
Concentrated session. Ideal for those who are total beginners, self-taught, or wish to know the correct way of using oils and related items.

Cost -   $260.00 
Morning / afternoon tea supplied. Bring lunch. 
On the second day lunch provided. 
Note:   Minimum numbers are required in order for this to be run.  


     Covered in the above workshop: 

  • Explanation of different paints/manufacturers | Colour Mixing | Mediums | Supports | Techniques | Glazing | Brushes | Knives | wipe-out method (a fast way for an underpainting in order to establish lights and darks). Several smaller paintings will be undertaken trying out various techniques.
  • Don't worry, I do not believe in spending money when one does not have to, therefore, materials will be kept lower cost and yet, enabling quality work to be achieved. Artist's quality oils are always the best to use, however, to keep costs down Winsor & Newton's student brand (Winton) and/or Rowneys are quite acceptable. Definitely not to be used are Maries, or other inexpensive brands.

    Note - If you prefer to use a water mixable oil, then I am able to supply a set of these to you at a reduced retail cost - please advise upon registration.
