Luminous Plein Air Oil Painting with Sharon Lynn Williams – Leighton Art Centre

July 24, 2019 / Event -

August 24th – 25th, 2019

In Sharon Lynn Williams’ opinion, the secret to luminous oil painting is in using a transparent wet underpainting in vibrant colours, followed by a top layer of opaque paint, leaving some of the stunning underpainting to show through in places. Join Sharon in this two day exploration of that process, from life. This method will give your paintings new life and extraordinary luminosity. Using this method en plein air makes colour interesting and exciting, with total control of edges and values, allowing you to explore and interpret the scene in front of you, rather than simply copying what you see.
