Painting Workshop with Damien Kurth

Absolute beginners through to working artists

  • Painting fundamentals for landscapes and portraits in oils and acrylic
  • Painting and drawing techniques and ideas to help the beginner thought to the exhibiting artist
  • Painting made fun and easy while still covering all the serious stuff

This is a 3 hr workshop where participants will be introduced to painting techniques to help create a realistic representational painting, either a portrait or landscape, using traditional painting techniques.
During the workshop ways to problem solve tricky areas, brushwork/mark making, setting up a clear composition, creating illusionistic 3d space and practical use of tone and colour theory will be covered.
If you have ever wanted to learn how to paint realistically, admired old master techniques and wondered how they did it, wanted to extend and expand your painting practice these courses are for you.

This workshop is structured for absolute beginners through to working artists. It can be used as a one of learning experience or as an introduction to longer study I will be offering in realism and representational painting of the Portrait, landscape and figure.
