Painting with Water Soluble Oils
Add to your calendar
Date: June 19, 9:00 am
Continues Until: June 20
Location: The Art Studio
Details: Also known as "water-miscible" or "solvent-free" oils, water soluble oils are real oil paints, formulated with the exact same pigments as traditional oils.  However, it possible to clean up these paints with soap and water, and no turpentine or other solvents are needed. 
   
Over two days, experiment and get acquainted with this high performance painting medium.  Instructor and painter, Harriet Huff, shares a variety of water-soluble oil painting techniques, while focusing on composition and color.  Part of the workshop time is spent indoors, and part is spent outdoors plein air painting. 
   
Supplies are provided, and each participant takes home a set of 12 water-mixable oil paints, a filbert oil brush size 10, a round detail brush size 4, a small palette knife, and three 8 x 10 canvas panels.  Contact The Center if you prefer to bring your own supplies.  All participants, please bring a sketchbook and appropriate attire for painting outside. Instructor: Harriet Huff.
