Phil Garrett, Williamsburg Oil Independent Artist, will cover topics essential to oil painting: sizes & grounds, using oil over acrylics, pigment grind, color properties, oil mediums, varnishing, solvent-free painting practices, and health & safety during this two hour presentation.

You will also get to do several short hands-on exercises that explore paint textures due to variations in pigment grind. How pigment load can affect opacity, transparency, brilliance or muting of color. Compare the range of blacks and highlight useful neutrals and finish with a simple way to do a solvent-free clean-up.

Each attendee will receive a color chart, product literature, and a small box of oil paint samples to take home.

Artist Statement: My work is informed by nature, a kind of mythical nature. The power of storms, the spiritual quality of the elements, the beauty, grace and ferocity of plants and animals. Something greater than myself, something I can’t comprehend. Painting and making monotypes is my search for the mystery within the subject, within myself. artist website>
