Oils: Painting Birds
On this course, you will learn how to paint your favourite bird in oils. To begin with, the composition will be created with one colour. This is generally called an underpainting and it helps to establish the light and dark areas which create form. Then, with a limited range of colours, you will add the colours of your bird using a harmonious palette, ideally suited to paint the subtle, beautiful hues and tones of a bird's feathers. Guidance will be given, if requested, to mix the range of colours needed. Lynne will provide photographs to work from, but if you have a favourite bird image, please bring your own. This course is suitable for beginners and those with some experience.
