Full Day Oil Painting Workshop with Robyn Collier

Sunday 17 February 2019

This is a full day oil painting workshop during which Robyn will demonstrate in steps how to execute a painting focusing on water reflections in still water. The approach used by Robyn is an “Alla Prima” or wet-on-wet.

At around 12.30pm you will stop for a 30 minute break during which you can have lunch. Please note that lunch is not provided although there will be some light food. Please note that this is an oil painting workshop however no turps is allowed. Only Gamsol or any other similar odourless free mineral spirits are allowed. By the end of the day you will have your own finished painting to take home with you.

From time to time requests are done by participants to paint in acrylics. Robyn’s technique is wet-on-wet and hence due to acrylics fast drying time it is very difficult to achieve the effects that can be achieved by oils using acrylics. Robyn has indicated that will be okay as long as retarder is used to keep the acrylic from drying quickly, and the person is experienced with blending.
