Creating in Oil on Copper
DATES TO COME for 2020 – STAY TUNED!
An intensive 3-Day Workshop • (Includes catered lunch)
Location: Encinitas, CA Studio
It’s been a year and a half since I’ve offered a workshop in oil on copper. Many of you have been asking… thanks for your patience. Now finally, here it is – my last workshop of 2019, in which I will share proprietary techniques for creating stunning works of art on copper. You’ll be learning how to combine the forces of nature (patina on copper) with your own creative force, through oil painting directly on and into the patinated metal surface.
What We’ll Cover
You’ll come away from this workshop with a firm grasp of material and technical elements, including:
• Copper sheet • Copper foil • Surface preparation • Copper oxidation processes • Patina agents • Lacquer resist • Sealing the copper • Oil paint on copper • Mounting considerations • Health and safety
You’ll be working directly with me in fundamental issues of the creative process, including:
• Developing subject matter • Finding a voice in the copper • Letting go of ‘mistake’ mentality • Opening the door to serendipity • Identifying your best direction • Avoiding pitfalls, seizing opportunities • Next level – higher forces
This is a hands-on course. Most materials and equipment supplied. You’ll need to bring or purchase about $20 worth of materials for the course if you don’t already have them.
