Oil on Canvas

I put my oil students to the test by giving them this still to copy. Their brief was to paint certain objects in a restricted number of strokes. I was excited by their results! Being aware of the number of strokes they had to use, influenced their style of painting as well as the shape of the stroke and the amount of paint they deposited on the canvas. Their paintings were dynamic and very much alive. Very rewarding from a tutors point of view.
