Evening Light in Oils with Joe Armstrong

Course Details

Date

Tuesday 08th October 2024

Time

10:00 am – 4:30 pm

Course Description

Joe is well known in Cornwall for his vibrant use of colour and impasto style of painting oils. He will commence the workshop with a demonstration capturing a scene with evening light where you will get a feel for his technique; you will then be led through the various stages of creating a painting in his style. Joe will encourage you to open up and become comfortable creating your piece using a palette knife and a range of striking, vibrant colours. This is an opportunity to use colour and movement in a bold and daring way, breaking down pre-conceived ideas.

“I love the texture of pure paint on canvas. I use the palette knife which stops my work being too precise. This gives my paintings a vibrant and spontaneous feel.”
