This workshop is a guide to making an oil painting in the studio.  You will look at how best to gather source material, then how to get started on a final painting. After a brief demonstration, students will begin their own painting. We will look at how one might begin on a ‘blank canvas’, how to build up a work paying attention to tone and colour, how to spot problems along the way and some possible finishing touches. This ‘alla prima’ approach will mean that you hopefully go home with a finished oil painting at the end of the day. The skills learnt in this class could then be applied to plein air painting as well as further independent work in the studio. The class is suitable for any level of ability, whether you are new to oils or landscapes or just looking to hone your technique and improve certain aspects of your discipline.

Hester gained a first class honours Degree in Fine Art at Aberystwyth University and went on to complete an MA in Fine Art, Painting at UAL Wimbledon.  Her work has been widely exhibited within the UK, and sold privately all over the world.  She has won several awards and was shortlisted for the BP Portrait Prize, Sky Arts Portrait Artist of the Year and Landscape Artist of the Year.  Hester has been teaching painting and drawing since 2011, at places such as Draw Brighton, Camden Arts Centre, and for other colleges, galleries and art societies.
