Oil Painting Classes

Recommended Posts

Daughter and I took up oil painting classes on a saturday morning.

5 weeks in and learned loads, know I will never be a great painter but what a lot of fun and enjoyment is being had.

I have also decided to grow a goatee beard to look more bohemian - it was either that or cutting a ear off

You made the right choice. What a pleasure going to classes with your daughter.  Maybe one of you or both will show us your accomplishments.

Next batch of 6 weeks signed up for. New work underway, something warmer and more 'Greek'.

Lovely bunch of learners in the class, all blundering together.

Good for you, samsc.  You seem to have an aptitude and sounds like fun

It's great when you discover something you enjoy.  I am painting too. But just walls.  That too has a certain satisfaction. :-)

Water colours are pretty forgiving too.  Mistakes can be interesting. :)

Those are fantastic. Very well done. Talented family.

I think my favourite is still the wee cottage.

I am definitely going back after the New Year to do another session. 

 

Fabulous group of people, lovely lady in her late 60s who is painting the place of her childhood, a wonderful bay in Argyle.

Our latest pieces.

Finally decided to tackle figures and went with Flamenco scene. Erin did a painting of a sunny Loch Lomond

Brilliant. Very vivid. Love the figures, I can hear that flamenco guitar and love the sun shining through the trees in Erin's painting.

Thanks Pat, nothing special just challenge pieces, didn't appreciate how difficult it is to 'see' ...your blooming brain wants to fill in what it thinks you should see

I've only ever tried water colours. Kind of do their own thing. Put up some more of your work soon. :-)

we are currently having a wee sabbatical from the classes, the daughter is going through her studying for highers hell, but we shall return in June.

Meanwhile have been working on a wee scene from Loch Goilhead - they talk about Ireland and 50 shades of green, Scotland can match that
