Williamsburg Oil Colors Lecture


Part of Santa Fe Art Week, The Williamsburg Oil Colors Lecture is a two hour free educational presentation by Phil Garrett that covers topics essential to oil painting. During this event attendees will learn about sizes and grounds using oil over acrylics, pigment grind, color properties, oil mediums, varnishing, solvent-free painting practices, and health and safety. You will also get the opportunity to do several short hands on exercises that explore the pallet of paint textures due to variations in pigment grind. Techniques include; how pigment load can effect opacity, transparency, brilliance or muting of color, compare the range of blacks, highlight useful neutrals and finish a simple way to do solvent-free cleanup. Each attendee will receive a color chart, product literature and a small box of oil paints.

Phil Garrett is a graduate of the San Francisco Art Institute and is internationally recognized for his printmaking. His paintings and works on paper are in numerous public and private collections. He is a published author of “Inside Acrylics” published by North light Books in 2013. He joined the Golden artist colors working artist program in 1998.

The presentation participation is limited to fifteen people, registration is required.

The demo will be held in the Ventana Fine Art Gallery East courtyard from 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm.
