Oil painting techniques on two Wednesday afternoons in Sherborne A chance to have a go at a still life painting using the method of underpainting, traditionally called grisaille. Two afternoons on a Wednesday, the first will involve painting a still life in grey tones. This allows you to concentrate on shape and value without being distracted by colour. A week later (when the underpainting is dry!) we will glaze with colour. This workshop is suited to beginners especially those who have taken our oil beginner's workshops, and experienced watercolour and acrylic painters who are thinking of making the jump to oils. Small class of maximum 6 All levels welcome. Some starter materials provided, however if you do have brushes and oils please bring them. Parking Please note there is no parking directly at the venue. There is on-road parking in the road opposite or in The Avenue where there is a walk-way to the studios. Coldharbour pay and display carpark is a short walk. You are welcome to pull into the yard in order to unload before parking. Disabled Parking We have 2 disabled parking bays for blue badge holders directly outside the door to the studios that may be reserved in advance. Please email to book.
