Glazing in Oil Techniques

$300.00Member Price: $265.00


Color, Light, Shadow, Translucency – These are the ingredients that we will work with to create a beautiful painting for you to take home. We will work from a photo reference and using the glazing technique we will apply thin layer upon layer of oil paint to achieve the depth and translucency associated with all things in nature.

Students will be taught how to choose a composition, transfer it to the canvas and then begin the process of laying in color. This class will be taught in four sessions to allow for critical drying time between layers. We will focus on light and shadow, paying attention to brushwork and edges as we build up the design. Paintings preferably are done on a  16”x20” gallery wrap canvas and students will be given a choice of images from which to work. Attention to detail is important and even more critical is the use of light and shadow to form the shapes while laying in color to complete the design.

Each of the four sessions will begin with a demonstration and instruction followed by individual attention. We will discuss composition, color mixing, edges, blending, and values. At the end of the fourth session, each student will have a beautifully completed painting to grace your wall at home.
