Sat 18th January: Pelham Hall Oils Group Workshop 1


From Paula Brady - 16 Jan 2020
I am very sorry to inform you that Trevor has just cancelled all of his art classes this weekend due to ill health. I’m really sorry for this and for any inconvenience this causes any of you.

I have managed to get another great artist, Mr. Alex Brown, to take over at very short notice. For those of you who have not met Alex, he is an excellent artist, who has tutored us in Oils at Pelham Hall in the past. Alex will take over the oils group and will commence the first workshop as planned with a still life. He has been given the list of materials and will adhere to this also. So, for those of you who have paid for your materials these will all be provided for you by Alex.

I hope that you are happy to remain in the oils group with Alex. However, should you prefer not to, I will arrange a refund for you as soon as possible.

Artist Tutor – Trevor Osborne

Traditional oil painting techniques for all levels of ability.

Exploring oil paint, mediums, colour mixing, brush and palette knife techniques.

The course will take you through all the techniques and skills you need to produce a still life painting in oils.

Student's work at the end of their first lesson

The intention is to give you the confidence, the knowledge and the techniques you need to work, independently, in oils.

"Oil painting is, in my opinion, the easiest medium to start painting in. It also offers an endless and diverse study for those who wish to take it further.

The intention of this course is to open the door to the enjoyment painting in oils offers, without the expense of the initial cost of materials and with the support of an experienced tutor."
