Landscape oil painting featuring mountains trees sky and field by Richmond, Virginia artist Anne Walker.

Landscape Oil Painting Workshop with Anne Walker at Quirk Gallery

November 11, 2023 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Join Quirk in the gallery for an in-depth introduction to oil painting led by Richmond-based artist, Anne Walker.
Whether you’re new to oil painting or picking it back up, Anne will take through all the basics of painting, covering the concepts of shape, form, and line. She will lead you through preparing your canvas and show you how to set up your palette. After a lesson in mixing color, Anne will begin the class with a simple still life exercise to get those creative juices flowing. In that 20-minute exercise, participants will practice on 5x 7 cardboard canvases.

You will then move onto the main attraction, the mountain landscape! Participants will apply the lessons they just learned and paint their own mountain landscape. Raise our horizon to create an expansive field or lower your horizon to focus on your mountain majesty. The choice is yours and no two landscapes will be the same. Participants will leave with their practice still life
and an 8x 10 inch landscape painting. All supplies and instruction are included. Participants have the option of bringing their own brushes and paint, if desired. Register now.
