Painter Jon Doran teaching at Newlyn School of Art

Krowji-based painter Jon Doran is teaching the new Painting with Oils three day course at Newlyn School of Art.

Jon says of his work “I am interested in taking classical subjects of still life, portraiture and figures in landscape and rearticulating them through a digitally influenced and fragmented approach to painting.”

This is a three day workshop surveying the fundamentals of representational painting focusing on tonal values, composition, form, colour identification and mixing and mark making. The subject will be a range of still life set ups with practitioners working in oils. The aim will be to understand the foundational skills of painting. The course is suitable for beginners and improvers with students taught largely on a one to one basis with the Tutor coming around to each person teaching to their level and helping them overcome any obstacles that arise. Jon will also share with students the process by which he paints and offer some short demonstrations at different stages to illustrate what he is teaching to the group.
