The Power of Glazing and Scumbling Oil Painting Techniques Workshop WITH OKSANA ZHELISKO

$90 ($80 + $10 Supply Fee) + Supply List

Class Limit: 15 Students

For artists at mid-beginner to intermediate levels

Glazing is the brushing of a thin, transparent, darker paint layer over an area of dry paint.

Scumbling is the application of a thin opaque or semi-opaque layer on top of the dark layer.

Both techniques will allow you to create luminosity, depth, and surface variation in your paintings. This is a very efficient way to paint because textured and smooth surface variations can be used to create the illusion of three-dimensional space. The first part of the class we will concentrate on the creation of a detailed, monochromatic under-painting by using black and white acrylic paint. The second part of the class will be on modifying and building thin layers of saturated oil paint colours and further establishing contrast in the painting. After the class your paintings are going to improve with a better understanding of transparent and opaque pigments. You will take home a finished painting.
