The course will concentrate on painting buildings, both close up and within a landscape context. The day will include:
- A review of paintings which have buildings as their focus, both within the landscape and the urban environment;
- Painting buildings within the landscape and how to balance detail and context;
- Techniques for painting buildings as the focus of your painting;
- Painting a picture of a scene within an urban environment with buildings at different distances and therefore levels of detail;
- A review of the day
The course will have no more than 8 pupils to ensure plenty of time for one to one tuition and all materials are included in the price. Tea and coffee are provided as is a simple lunch (e.g. soup and a roll) or you are welcome to bring your own food. If you are new to oil painting we suggest that you will gain more from this course if you have participated in our ‘Introduction to oil painting’ day which will provide you with some of the techniques we explore further as we paint buildings in the landscape and in detail.
