Guided steps to accomplished oil painting for beginners with Leonie Mackenzie

Fridays - 13, 20 & 27 April & 4, 11 & 18 May - 09h30 to 12h00

Oil painting is a wonderful, rich and versatile medium, from light Turner-esque washes to the depths of  Rembrandt's shadows.  Through the push and pull play of light and dark, creating form from shadows, order is restored from chaos. 

"As practice makes perfect, I cannot but make progress; each drawing one makes, each study one paints, is a step forward"
Vincent van Gogh
