Sketching in Oils AAC59-Winter

In this course, students will learn to use oil paints and work freely from their photographs. Students may work from landscape or still life images. The emphasis will be on creating painted sketches, one of which will be completed each class session. 

The process will be that of the French masters as they sketched in oils. Students will learn to first simplify the shapes, separate them into a pattern of dark and light, and then build a greater, more colorful tonal range and suggestion of imagery. The results will be short, fluid sketches that stand alone as artworks or can be used as studies for further painting. The class is well suited for the beginner as well as more experienced student.
