Todd Bonita - Beginners Oil Painting Layering and Glazing

Todd Bonita - Beginners Oil Painting Layering and Glazing

Todd is currently taking a hiatus from teaching at Brush and Palette. Please check back for future dates, or ask to be added to the Brush and Palette email blast.

If you are a beginner to oil painting or have never painted but have always wanted to try, or if you're just dusting off the old brushes to get back into painting, this class is designed specifically for you. Using a 600 year old technique of layering and glazing as our foundation, we will simplify the oil painting process into six manageable steps to complete a work of art. I will demonstrate, lecture, critique, provide handouts and assist you at your easel in an effort to help you better understand how to make an oil painting.

With an ultimate objective to learn to see like an artist and use the tools of an artist, each class will begin with a lecture and demo where we will explore individual steps from drawing to under painting to color application. Design, value, color and creative oil painting techniques and tools will be discussed and demonstrated. We will also discuss a variety of on-going practical studio tips for the artist. With an understanding of these principles, students will be better equipped to meet the challenges of painting with glazes and layers and thereby, better able to express themselves as artists.
