This two-day workshop is an overview of oil painting for beginners who wants to start practicing with oil paints.

Using photographs David Janzen will lead participants through the basic stages of creating a landscape oil painting on panel using only white and one other colour. Participants will be provided with a choice of images by the instructor. David Janzen will go over basic materials, techniques, and treatments to build an understanding monochromatic oil painting. Through live demonstrations and ongoing assistance this workshop will introduce the proper care of brushes, paint handling, the applications of lights and darks, discuss negative/positive space, and tonal considerations. Though all supplies will be provided in the class, participants may bring their own brushes if they so desire.

As a painter David Janzen explores conventional still-life motifs while developing ways of making pictures that incorporate assemblage or constructed elements. His artworks address settlement, industry, and the fragility of civilization’s dependence on technology, tenuously connected infrastructure(s) and the effects of human habitation on natural history.
