Van Gogh Workshop with Marc A Turner At Castle Park Arts Centre

The Van Gogh Workshop went really well and the results were extremely good from everyone, here are the results from some amazingly talented painters.

The painting of Landscape with Green Corn after Vincent Van Gogh was carried out using oil paints of the same colour pigments and using the same techniques from broken dashes through to using the paint straight from the tube and mixing on the support.

As Vincent originally painted the Landscape with Green Corn, the colours are extremely vibrant and full of life.

Turner Basic Oil Painting Course at Castle Park Art Centre 29th March 2016

Turner Basic Oil Course at Castle Park Art Centre

what a brilliant result from a group of excellent students at the Turner basic oil course at the Castle Park Art Centre, It was an excellent venue with the right atmosphere and brilliant lighting for everyone on the course and as you can see, excellent results.

The colour wheel image image image

The work was based on creating a colour wheel using only the 3 primary colours but in both the warm and the cool range of each colour, we then mixed the secondary colours, as this is the basic course it is important not to try to take to much knowledge in all at once and to constantly repeat the information so it becomes second nature, once the basics are grasped and fully understood it makes everything in the future easier to understand.

Value scale

we created a value scale in black and white and a further scale using red and green so this can be used as a reference for the future.

Also not how clean and tidy the painting palettes are.

Turner Basic Oil Painting Course

The students on the Turner basic oil painting course carried out a study using distemper to create an under painting and then complete the oil painting over the distemper under painting, the painting of Apples, Pear and a stone cup after Jean-Baptiste-Siméon Chardin, as we are on week eight of the course everyone managed to put their own mark on the subject with excellent results.

The Turner basic oil painting course is structured for the complete beginner or people wishing to get back into oil painting, it deals with many aspects of painting from colour mixing, learning about the values in painting, the basics of 1 and 2 point perspective and a list of painting methods such as direct and indirect painting.

Marc takes the students through a step by step process to get everyone to have a good grounding for painting anything.

The feedback has been positive with students stressing that they have learned more in a few classes than they have learned on any other course.

Marc believes that anyone can learn to paint and encourages everyone to have a go and realise the joy of creating your very own masterpiece.

Happy painting, Marc;)
