Oil Painting: Color, Brush and Mark
Embark upon an oil painting journey by learning the fundamentals of the medium and finding new ways to develop personal imagery. Emphasis is on developing the lush, nuanced surfaces that oil painting can accomplish, focusing on canvas preparation, underpainting, glazing, color, and brush stroke. Students are encouraged to consider the subject matter, narrative, and many formal concerns that support these concepts. Composition, form, mood, contrast, and surface are also topics to be explored. This rigorous course results in several paintings upon which to build and reflect.
