Our health is important to us as we pursue our favorite pastime. That means learning to paint without paint thinner. Dick will lead students through traditional oil painting techniques using oil paints or water soluble oil paints. We will cover how much and which oil media to use, how much and when to use water, how to clean bushes safely and painting in plein aire vs in the studio. This class is really about going back to basics and simplifying our lives. There are so many colors and palette choices to choose from. How do we decide? By limiting our palette we have fewer choices to make when mixing colors which simplifies the process. Also it is much easier to understand how to mix paint by looking at paint rather than talking about “color theory”. This all makes the learning process fun. In the first class I will condense the toxic free painting methods and the limited palette to help us all understand and move forward to working on your own paintings (using your own photos or laptop) as soon as possible. I prefer talking and demonstrating for a short time then having students follow me initially. After that, plan on using some new paints and techniques to produce works you will be proud of. This class is focused on painting in oils, but students working in acrylics or watercolor are welcome.

Please sign up early; class size is limited to 12 students.
