Aside

The Painter’s Craft

Develop confidence with oil paint’s special character of luminosity, expressive potential, and longevity. We will cover pigments, oil mediums, varnish, and grounds as we prepare traditional supports: gessoed panel, paper, and linen. We’ll explore paint application, color, and tonal techniques through daily demos in the studio with still-life setups using our freshly prepared panels and traditional gesso on canvas and linen.
