On this 4 week course I will paint alongside you from a still life set up in the studio.  We will build up a picture in layers over the four mornings, beginning with composition, colouring large areas then adding tones and details at later stages. By the end of this course you should feel more confident in the stages of making an oil painting.

 

What to bring:

 

Please bring your own brushes - a selection of long handled hog hair or similar oil brushes and a round soft brush for details.

 

Oil paint - Suggested colour palette: 

 

Ultramarine blue, 

Yellow ochre, 

lemon yellow, 

vermillion or cadmium red, 

Alizarin crimson or magenta or similar cool red

Zinc white, (or any white you have) 

Vine black (or whatever black you have)

 

Palette - a piece of melamine or perspex or similar.  Or a pad of disposable palettes.

 

Some vegetable oil in a lidded jam jar to clean your brushes.

 

A suitable low odour medium to dilute your paint such as Zest it or Sansador for classical oils or a painting medium especially for waterbased oils.

 

A stretched canvas and a notebook and pencil.

 

Rags (eg cut up old t shirt, sheet etc - Preferable NOT paper )

 

Stretched canvases will also be available to purchase from me. 

 

I have some classic oil paint, mixers and palettes - there will be an extra £15 fee for using these

Whats App group

There is a Whats app group open to all previous students and those currently attending classes. The purpose of this is that if you can’t make a weekly session you can sell it to someone who can’t attend regularly. Please contact Suzy if you wish to be added to the group in order to pick up the occasional class if you can’t attend regularly.

Suzy is an experienced and fully qualified Adult learning tutor, having previously worked for Devon County's Adult learning programme where she planned and delivered both accredited and leisure courses for over ten years.  She now works as a freelance tutor running popular, friendly and informative classes on a weekly basis plus occasional day workshops around specific themes. ​​​
