Introduction to Oil Painting
LIVE DEMO with Alex Sharma 
 
WHEN: Friday, September 3, 2021
(10am to 11:30am EST)


If you have ever wanted to try to paint in oils but didn’t know how to start, this Zoom demo will introduce you to classic oil painting and the methods used to put paint on canvas.

Color mixing, brushwork, use of palette knife, types of painting supports (canvas, board, etc.), painting mediums and care of materials will all be demonstrated and practiced.

Paint along with Alex using whatever oil colors and brushes you may have.


Materials Included: No materials are provided by Art League of Hilton Head for this demonstration.
Requirements: All LIVE DEMOs with Alex Sharma are designed so that students can watch, or paint along with while they watch. If you choose to paint along, you're welcome to paint in whatever medium you choose, as almost all of the techniques can be applied across mediums.

For this Demonstration, here are a few supplies Alex recommends having for those of you who wish to paint along:

MATERIALS:
1. Basic Oil Paint in the following colors (Cadmium or Cobalt yellow, Yellow ochre or Raw Sienna, Cadmium Red, Alizarin Crimson, Phthalo Blue, Ultramarine Blue, Cerulean Blue, Sap Green, Burnt Sienna and Titanium White)

*NOTES: The main thing is to have at least 1 yellow, 2 reds (cadmium and alizarin), at least 2 blues (ultramarine + cerulean or cobalt or phthalo) , and 1 green (sap is a good choice-- or Hookers or viridian). This way you will always have an excellent range of colors from which to mix other colors.

2. 2 Brushes: (one filbert or flat, and one round - size of your choice)
3. Heavy paper or mat board to paint on
4. Mineral spirits to clean your brush between colors
