Celebrating Wildlife in Oil

Celebrating Wildlife in Oil

Guy Combes brings his first workshop at SAS with an immersion into the basic mechanics of his technique. Starting with an outline of field study and reference gathering, he will guide you through the process of building a composition, while sharing his inspiration and knowledge of East Africa. Although there will be reference provided for the class to follow a demonstration painting, he will encourage you to bring in photos of animals or landscapes that have special meaning to you. The demonstration will follow clear steps toward the completion of an oil painting, through image transfer, underpainting, glazing and final rendering of considerate detail. Throughout the workshop Combes will be happy to answer questions about how he markets his work, and how he uses his art to raise awareness and funds for the conservation causes he is involved with, both in East Africa and the Sonoran Desert region. www.guycombes.com
