First Time with Oils

June 16, 2015

Introductory session of the Summer School, a handful of students were using oil paints for the very first time.

All spent quite a while getting their chosen composition sketched in, some included the whole figure while others chose to concentrate on head and shoulders.

This is the first of three sessions working on the same picture, some comments – “They are a lot easier to use than I expected” and “That was fun!”
