Oil paint is much more than color and this workshop will add to your visual vocabulary by looking at creative ways to use paint with additional force. We will fearlessly explore the three-dimensionality of the medium and seeing what different masses of paint can do; heavy and medium to thin washes. We will play with ways of applying paint to the surface, daring to use heavy brush strokes and see what happens when the surface is rough or flat. Whether you are new to painting or have been painting for a while, this workshop will give you new tools and inspire you to use oil paint in bold and effective ways.
