Take time out to experiment with different mark making techniques:

  • Bring your own oils. (although I have a few spare, might not be ideal colours)
  • Try cold wax (Zest or equivalent) and oil.
  • Embed layers within the wax, newspaper or coloured paper.
  • Try crackle paste which makes a contemporary finish.
  • If you wish to develop a predetermined idea (landscape, life model image).
  • Then consider bringing a prepared cradle panel primed with coloured gesso.
  • Bring your own pre primed cradle panels (I use Jacksonsart own brand).
  • Provided will be some small panels to get started on.
  • refine palette knife marks, edges and glides.
  • study examples of colour mixing and limited palettes.
