      Oils

 

I paint a portrait in oils, which will take 2 - 3 hours. My work begins with a monochrome approach, this way I work out my tonal values and likeness as I go along. Colour is then slowly introduced.

This demonstration is a good introduction to anyone unfamiliar with using oil paints and also portraiture. Dawn will guide the group through her process, explaining as she goes and dispelling any myths that oil paints hold. 

           " I  Would recommend that anyone give oil paint's a try, it is a truly forgiving medium and its application has  multiple approaches. Do not be scared of this wonderful medium"

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Gouache

 

In gouache, my subject matter is the landscape. Demonstrating how to build up layers of textures  and how to tackle shrubs and flowers. This demonstration will introduce anyone to gouache and all its benefits, including the opacity and strong depth of colour.

Dawn is based in Castleford West Yorkshire and would be prepared to travel within a 30 miles radius for a price of £120. If your Art group goes beyond that then an additional fee would be added.

 Workshops

I offer two kinds of workshops, one is a portrait in oils and the other is a landscape in gouache.

     Oil painting portrait

This workshop would be over 2 days, (or weeks) However long your class session lasts.

Week 1 We would plot a portrait, using a grid method and create a monochromatic  underpainting.

Dawn would demonstrate the full process, and explain what oil paint is, what brushes are the best to use, which surface to use and how to prepare it. Plus eliminate any myths about oil mediums.

 

Week 2 the second layer would be painted, this week we would be focused on colour mixing and how to create a good flesh tone. Introduce a palette knife, and how to mix the colour. I will be discussing all abut how warm and cool colours on the face help create a more realistic finish, and how and when to blend.

 

A week before I will email out a full, "how to" PDF with all the information of not only what will be needed for the workshop, but a full breakdown of what I will be teaching. Along with this I will bring along copies of the print out, so people can take it away with them.

 

This workshop, for the two days would be £250  Dawn is based in Castleford West Yorkshire and would be prepared to travel within a 30 miles radius if your art group is further out than this then I would ask for additional travel costs.  

     Gouache Workshops

This is a one session workshop, we will be working in layers building up the colour intensity as we go. The first layer will be a blocking in layer, looking at shapes and tone. The second layer will be building up foliage, using texture and various application methods to help deliver a pleasing result. Gouache is a very forgiving medium which makes it an ideal product to teach, the more advanced painter or armature.
