AN INTRODUCTION TO OIL PAINTING // 6 week course with the artist Nicholas Robinson // Starts Thursday morning, April 12th // 10:00 - 13:00

A practical 6 week course in oil painting from life, introducing the most basic principles of observing nature, using materials and rendering form - all presented in a simple step by step manner.

The course involves working on 4 paintings in a series of weekly exercises of slightly increasing complexity with a final 2 week painting of the nude figure from life. Each exercise involves painting from life to understand light, form, space and simple colour, going from a initial 2D block-in to a final 3D effect. This course is ideal for both beginners and painters who want to do a refresher on the most important basics of painting in oils!

About the Tutor: Nicholas Robinson attended the Florence Academy of Art, Sweden, under the tutelage of the Swedish painter Joakim Ericsson - winning 2 awards during his time here. Recently short-listed for the Hennessy Portrait prize, Nick is now exhibiting nationally, and works and teaches out of his studio in Dublin.
