Catherine Bobkoski – Oiling Out, Sanding, Scumbling and Glazing with Oils (Online Class Recording)

Date recorded: Friday, December 8, 2023
Medium: Oil

Breathe new life into your unfinished oil sketches, alla prima studies, or less-than-stellar plein-air paintings! If you have been painting for any amount of time you likely have a few of these piled up. Oiling out, sanding down, and working over old paintings is a great way to develop subtlety and nuance – or to completely reimagine your ideas.

Catherine will lead you through this simple but technical trick in detail, with a step-by-step process that you can apply yourself. Learn how to apply opaque and transparent paint passages in layers over your old work to refine, develop and revitalize them!

Not only is this a great way to revisit old work, but oiling out, sanding, and painting over can be incorporated into your regular painting practice. It is a great way to expand your repertoire of textural effects. Combining alla prima and indirect techniques will bring a new sophistication to your work.

Recommended for oil painters of all experience levels.

$40.00 for 2 months
