A five-day workshop: cost £315. Please book using the Eventbrite link below or contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org for further information.
Students will learn techniques in working with oil paint outdoors, improve colour mixing skills and confidently apply oil paint wet-on-wet. They will learn how to assess a colour’s tone, hue, temperature and saturation in relation to those around it, in order to build up rich, vibrant paintings of the environment surrounding the Moray Art Centre. The week will also allow students to synthesize the information they have gathered outside and continue working on their ideas back in the studio.
All necessary materials will be provided and light lunches and refreshments will be available. Please notify us at time of booking if you have any dietary requirements.
