Carol Renshaw – (Oil Painting)

  • former mountain guide, turned stunning oil painter from Cumbria
  • trained in assisting novices to create an oil painting (wet-on-wet)
  • uses a “follow me” approach where she demonstrates each stage of building the picture before students then try the same. This lends itself well to oils as they need to be worked in a certain, immediate way.
The creation in oils of elements including sky, water, reflections, spray, bark and foliage is as much about trusting the technique to produce the effect. Using a range of tools and, what’s more, EVERYTHING PROVIDED on Carol’s courses so you can just bring yourself… you’ll end up taking at least one completed canvas home with you. We limit these courses now to 8 people as it seems to offer the best experience.

“Fab day: outstanding teacher, great fun.”
“Excellent tutor with good detailed instruction.”
“I would like to put on record how much I and the rest of the class enjoyed Carol Renshaw’s two days of oil painting . We were all surprised and delighted to come away with two oil paintings of different styles that we had painted using oil for the first time!
Her enthusiasm, help and encouragement in showing us her oil painting technique was a really useful introduction to ;getting started’.”
