Spring Term 2019 Friday Morning Monthly Oil Painting Classes


Out of stock

Maxine Byron a local landscape artist has a BA in Fine Art and enjoys painting large colourful pictures influenced by the Norfolk countryside. She exhibits locally and has works in private collection in the UK and America.

Her class will be led by example and demonstration with Maxine painting at the beginning and then assisting the group with their work. You can paint from images supplied or bring one of your own.

Painting with oil on canvas continues to be a favoured choice because of its long-lasting colour and the variety of approaches and methods. Oil paints may have been used as far back as the 13th century. Oil paintings do not require glass and a box canvas can be hung on the wall without need of a frame.

Easily removed from the canvas, oil allows the artist to revise a work; paint can be placed on top of acrylic; it can be used straight from the tube and applied with a palette knife for texture or used as a thin glaze.

Only non toxic, natural brush cleaning solvents will be used in this class as turpentine and white spirit can cause headaches.

£35.00 (inclusive of VAT) 

You are very welcome to stay on and use the studio untutored until 4.30pm for an additional £5 per person per day which you can pay on the day.
