Oil Painting at Evolution Arts, Brighton

I have just begun a nine session oil painting course for Evolution Arts in Brighton. There are 12 students  of varying abilities and so far we have been focusing on building skills in mixing and handling oil paint. The content will include colour mixing, blending, glazing and the many different applications of actually getting oil paint onto the paper or canvas and hopefully getting it to do what you want or what you think you want.

Watercolour Studies

The other day I was trying to explore transparency of colour and visual colour mixing with watercolour. The plan was to create some simple colour studies that illustrated the idea in a simple way. However, once the paint starts playing with you I'm easily seduced into straying off track to start exploring the beautiful blends and provoked accidents. The unpredictability of watercolour is one of its most compelling attributes I think. It is mesmerising.
