Painting Workshop Summary:

This is a premier duck painting workshop in Artisan Oils. For an 8 hour painting workshop the students will sketch the Mallard Drake. The painting consists of three painting zones, the background, foreground and Mallard Drake. In this design we will teach, using only a red, blue, yellow and white (limited palette) how to mix all their colors from 3 Primary Colors and develop a very 3 dimensional ,2D oil painting. The Artisan Oils is water base so we use no solvents or alkyd chemistry. We do use a fast drying medium ( water base) and the painting will be safely dry to touch by class end so we can finish with varnish and install the hanging hardware.

Painting on wood board is a very premium material to paint on and I have a fair amount of prep work, I sand, coat each wood board with 4 layers of my special coating, grid. I use my Epson Surecolor P400 color printer to print a high resolution 8 1/2” x 11 “ photo glossy print and grid. So in class we can focus on the sketch leading into the painting.
