Charles Weed: The Continuity of Light

by Matthew Innis |


4-Day Painting Workshop – The Continuity of Light

Leggi in Italiano


  • Wednesday, May 3 to Saturday, May 6, 2017
  • 6 hours of painting a day for a total of 24 teaching hours:
    – Still-life painting from 10:30 to 13:30
    – Portrait painting from 15:00 to 18:00
  • Over the course of the four days, Charles will instruct participants on possible strategies and techniques for an indirect oil painting process–a painting built up over time with various layers of paint, including the use of glazes and scumbles, and how the latter can be used to model form and flesh tones.  More about the workshop from Charles:

“I’ll be essentially doing a very condensed version of a process that requires longer time to be exploited fully.  This will be a course about Principles involved in the building up an oil painting.  You won’t be producing a resolved image in 4 days, but you will hopefully come away with a better understanding of processes.”

Please note that the entire workshop will take place indoors and the lighting will be artificial.


  • €720 + Iva
