COURSE OVERVIEW
A five day painting from life course designed for real beginners. If you’ve ever wanted to learn to paint and were apprehensive about those early stages or where to acquire a sound method without the bull’, then this is the course for you! Hands-on tuition with ample demonstrations using a practiced, professional technique. Your hand will be held throughout and you will be guided through the process from start to finish. Post course, you will be supplied with email reminder notes to enable you to continue your studies.

DAY 1
Drawing - the real basics – essential elements to start to learn to draw properly. Nothing overlooked – a sound beginning giving you a solid start. Drawing is the foundation and sustaining structure throughout any life painting.

DAY 2
Raw basics of painting: palette colour choices, brush choices and the critical early stages of painting from life put into action in a straightforward fashion.

DAY 3
The unfolding of the process: a sequential, ordered method carefully explained and demonstrated to enable you to advance your painting.

DAY 4
Continuing from day 3 and building upon those earlier foundations - steering you through the progression

DAY 5
Drawing your painting together, consolidating the week’s study and building your confidence to leave you with an appreciation and working knowledge of painting in oils from life.

COURSE OVERVIEW
Designed for students with experience in oil painting and life work. This course will steer you through an established method and impart the necessary knowledge to further your study. Plenty of demonstrations and individual tuition. Post course, you will be supplied with email reminder notes to enable you to continue your studies. Materials supplied except for canvases. Individual tuition is key to this course, so numbers are strictly limited to 15.

DAY 1
A structured approach to drawing the human form. Reiterating the raw mechanics and applying a system of measurement to acquire a solid and accurate means to establish proportions and develop a drawing with key essentials in mind. This method provides a strong basis and is quickly acquired and enables painters with a ready means to achieve and also provides a "check" on their existing working practice.

DAY 2
A transitional day from drawing to painting. Starting with a pencil study to consolidate the previous day's work and then taking the "linearity" of the pencil into areas of blocking (mosaics) and subsequent observations of plane changes and relating this to shadow-masses. A monochrome (white, transparent raw sienna and raw umber) figure study is a useful means to establish the relationship of lights (opaque) and shadows (transparent) and the craft of "unfolding" a painting in a reduced form, setting things up for day 3.

DAY 3
The structure of the palette and its logic (warm and cold colours, opaque and transparent paint, pigment siblings, etc). Then into a "wash study" (raw sienna and raw umber over a light wash base) and then into mid-tone blocking and the sequence of letting a painting develop and the means of colour mixing and keeping your palette surface workable and vibrant.

DAY 4
Building upon the previous day and introducing refinement, corrections and techniques such as "knifing down" with the palette knife, etc whilst still keeping a keen eye on all the previous day's areas of study. Strong emphasis on bringing all the elements together to reach a confident stage and methods for "checking" one's work.

DAY 5
The final stages of the process - continued consolidation and adding the final "flourishes"; a few professional tricks, completing techniques, adjustments and painting "wet into wet".
