Still Life in Oils | Andrew Bonneau

"Andrew Bonneau is a patient and supportive art instructor and very generous with his artistic knowledge. Attending his drawing and painting workshop filled in a lot of gaps in my knowledge and opened up my capabilities. I gained valuable tools and resources and a renewed drive and direction. Given the opportunity, I would definitely attend more of Andrew’s workshops." - Cindy C

Create your own Still Life in Oils, with nationally-renowned realist painter and Archibald and Doug Moran Prize finalist, Andrew Bonneau.

In this 3 day workshop, Andrew will guide you through the fundamental principles of still life painting, including composition, light effects, colour relationships and capturing different textures through oil paint.

What will I learn?

You will be guided through the process of creating your own still life, including:
• setting up a carefully considered arrangement of objects and light source
• making a drawing of the set-up
• transferring the drawing to canvas or panel
• painting a transparent underpainting and then work on the final painting in opaque and transparent colour.

Along the way, there will be discussions about colour theory and paint quality, as well as plenty of opportunity for personal feedback on your work.
