Description

THE COURSE
A day with artist Laura Rich exploring techniques for painting with oil or acrylic. This course is aimed at providing an overview of two of the different ways in which to use oil and acrylic paint. We will explore the lovely muted palette achieved by painting alla prima (wet-in-wet or ‘all in one go’). We will also look at how to achieve bright, clean colours by painting in stages with separate layers.

Starting with a conversation about composition and tone, we will then discuss how to translate monotone into colour and why it is important to know. After that, we will move onto colour mixing using a 5-colour limited palette. Armed with that knowledge, we will try alla prima painting. Alongside the alla prima painting we will work up an underpainting (using acrylic so that it dries during the day) and work over the top to achieve a more layered painting.
