Thinking Clearly, Painting Boldly in Oils

Instructor: JJ Jiang 

Class Code: FR1904  

Workshop Fee:  $259

Skill Level: Intermediate to Advanced   

Medium: Oil

We all adore artists who can paint boldly, expressively and assertively. But before one can paint in this way, he must learn to paint with the head, not just the hand.  He needs to form the habit of developing a roadmap for the piece before putting paint to the surface, especially in the early stages of his painting career.

In this workshop JJ will share with participants his straight forward approach to the medium of oil painting with the goal of developing a beautiful cityscape painting all the while enjoying the process.  Using conceptual drawings, he will demonstrate his thinking processes as he plans his approach for the piece.

Through step-by-step live demo, JJ will bring the cityscape painting to completion.  After each segment, he will guide participants in their individual work. Participants will have approximately 4 hours to finish their paintings.  JJ will provide photos to be used for reference.  Focus will be given to the fundamentals, such as drawing, value, color and color temperatures, and artistic (painterly) approach. Throughout the workshop, JJ will share his personal insight and wisdom as it relates to oil painting.

Thinking without painting = daydreaming 

Painting boldly without thinking = nightmare 

Thinking clearly & painting boldly = Success!

**Following is a suggested supply list for your reference.  You are welcome to bring the supplies you are accustomed to.

Brushes

Synthetic Brush: two ¾”, two ½” and two ¼” square head flat brushes. I use Jerry’s Artarama Creative Mark Inspiration brand. They sell then in packs of three for a very good price - buy two or three packs. 

Paints

Maple yellow, Yellow Ochre, Cadmium Yellow, Cadmium Orange, Cadmium Red (Light), Alizarin Crimson, Burnt Umber, Burnt sienna, Ultramarine Blue, Cobalt Turquoise Light, Ultramarine Violet, Viridian, black and Titanium White. 

Medium:

Linseed oil, or walnut oil.  Choose one. 

Gamsol or other odorless mineral spirit – we will use very little.

Palette

No specific requirement. I use a piece of glass placed in a plastic box (you can find it in Jerry’s Artarama). If you like to use a disposable one-time-use paper palette, choose the gray colored one, not white. 

Painting surfaces

Primed and stretched canvas preferred, but you may use panels from Ampersand Gessoboard: 

One 12” x 16” canvas, Three 11” x 14” and one 12” x 12” canvases (Michael’s and AC Moore often have great sales on canvases). We will paint about 3 or more paintings.

1 roll of paper towels

Bring a desk-top easel or work flat on the table.
