Workshop: Introduction to painting Philip Prinz

The fundamentals of painting. Basic materials, palettes and techniques.

In this painting course you will learn step-by-step how to start painting. It starts with material science and some principles of oil painting. You will get to know different colour palettes and paint several small paintings using the Alla Prima method, i.e. wet-on-wet in one layer, as long as the paint has not yet hardened. Over time, you will increase your knowledge of the motifs, the palettes and the complexity - everything is variable, to suit your own learning pace. There is always an instructor present to answer your individual questions.

If you want to avoid oil paints for certain reasons, you can also take part in this course with acrylic paints. For example with Golden Open colours. The principles and methods you will learn work with both oil and acrylic paints. The difference is only in the technique of how you apply the colours. We recommend oil paints.

You should already have some drawing experience for this painting course so that you can concentrate on painting. If you are not familiar with tonal values, edges and shapes or if you are a complete beginner, we recommend that you take our fundamental drawing course first or in parallel.
