Fundamentals of Oil Painting

Alex Hadden and Lisa Pardon

Every Saturday 3:00 PM to 5:00 PM

Description

A great class for beginners (or anyone) who want to learn how to approach putting the paint on the canvas from concept to execution. 

We’ll be covering topics such as composition, hue, saturation, line, value, and color theory through a series of still lifes.

 

All participants must bring their own canvas, brushes, and palette with an encouraged color selection 

of titanium white, cadmium yellow, cadmium red, burnt sienna, French ultramarine blue, Indian yellow, and a 

mixing medium (liquin, galkyd, linseed oil etc.).

 

Come join me to learn about the wondrous possibilities of painting!

About Alex Hadden

 

I'm fascinated by illusion.  The entirety of our perception is based on the mirage of reality and artists wield the tools to explore and examine this shared hallucination.  That's why I seek to destabilize the boundaries of my subjects through elements of abstraction and orient the compositions around the emotive provocations, instead of didactic narratives. 

I use a multi-media approach to the application of abstracts and follow up with layers of oil paint on the representational content.  And to keep up with the physical demands of the process, I paint on thick wood panel. 

I don't want to tell anyone what I think of the work because I think that's a robbery of their chance to do it.  The interpretive game is the invaluable currency that the audience brings to the aesthetic experience.  In short, whatever you want it to mean- that's what it means.
