Oil Painting Workshop


Oil Painting with Becky Joy
on Friday, October 6th and Saturday, October 7th, 2017

Plein air painting in oil learning basic foundational building blocks to cohesive designs. Painting with painterly brushstrokes and texture while using color in a way that juxtaposes one color next to another to create illusions in light with rich, clean color. Each day Becky will do a quick demo to get you started on the right path, then the students will set up at a scene of their choosing in a localized area. Becky will visit each student to help them individually, as needed. Expect to begin creating 2 paintings a day (you may need to finish them later on).

Keep in mind, you may be in the field most of the day. You will want to bring plenty of water, a lunch, sun screen, comfortable shoes and shade if possible!
