8 x 10 Oil Painting
by Pat Fiorello
Taught a workshop for beginning oil painters, "Oil Painting in a Weekend" this past Saturday and Sunday. We packed a lot into the workshop including a review of materials, setting up your palette, mixing colors, seeing and painting form, value studies, the painting process and a painting in full color.
One of the exercises we did was to take a scene and just paint the big simplified value shapes( see below). Then later that day, we did the full color painting. My demo of "Azalea Path " is shown above.
My next oil painting workshop will be March 8-10 at Kudzu Art Center in Norcross GA. that one will focus on "Painting Flowers Alla Prima in Oil"
