Still Life Oils Course

New Weekend Date


Beginner – intermediate


Pennie Elfick


Lilac Barn at The Willows

Landscape painting 17/18 June 2017

Cost: £66

This year the course will be very local, which will enable us to walk out to the river and surrounding countryside (cars may be used) and also have a space near in case of bad weather

I am proposing that we go out with drawing boards and pencils/charcoal/ink and make multiple small drawings that will be used to inform your painting.

The first day will be outside drawing and the second day will be studio painting. This weekend will be very flexible, so that you can really organise your days as best suits you.

I am happy for you to use whatever medium you wish, oil/acrylic/collage etc. Water colour is good for colour notes

All abilities welcome

If you are interested in coming please let me know

 September still life day courses to be announced later

Experience & tools

The oil painting courses are designed to accommodate all students from the beginner to the more accomplished. The classes are small and each student is given individual tuition as appropriate. In this way each person is able to gain in confidence and progress at an individual pace.

What will I learn?

Still life set-ups are created each day – with the possibility of a time extension if required – these are lively and interesting and examine the historical as well as the contemporary issues which surround the subject.

The courses are structured so that different aspects of oil painting are covered. These include composition, colour mixing and the basic development of a painting from the initial brush stroke to the completion of the work.


Starter pack of materials i.e. paints/brushes/mediums etc. available £36
