Oil painting with a limited Palette of Colors and without using Solvents.
I think of this two day workshop as a solid introduction to a practical and safe approach to painting with oils.
We will cover a simple palette of colors that will meet most of your color mixing needs in an economical and practical way. We will simplify the concept of the color wheel and evaluate the difference between mineral and modern pigments and the kind of painting situations and reasons for choosing one type of pigment over the other.
We will discuss the best supports for modern painting and the best way to seal, prime and prepare them for painting . We will apply and paint on some of the more edgy acrylic grounds and gels that give oil painters fresh options and textures for their paintings. We will do all this without using mineral spirits, turpentine, or any volatile solvent to modify our paint or to clean brushes and tools and most importantly our hands and skin .
Suitable for beginner to intermediate painters.
