I've had the wonderful opportunity of attending a six week workshop with realist oil painter, Marcel Desbiens. After six weeks I completed a grey scale egg, and clouds - the photos came out pretty badly, however, the fact is in those weeks I learnt a bit about:
2. Respect for Oil painters
3. An understanding and appreciation of Realism
4. Taking risks/moving out of my comfort zone.
I'm usually pretty comfortable with moving into different areas and not being too precious about one medium than another. For me it's about getting the point across. So, I guess you could say, at the moment, my medium of choice is graphite...
For some reason, I have always felt at odds with painting, specifically acrylics. And I've always wanted to try oils, so after a friend handed his oil kit over to me, I decided to have a go. Well, I am more than satisfied that I did. And yes, I'd like to have more time to experiment with oils.
Marcel runs beginners, intermediate and mentorship workshops all year round. http://www.marceldesbiens.com/
