The Finished Painting

Oil Painting Demonstration

Lol Worrall came to St. Paul's and gave an Oil Painting Demonstration on Saturday 19th May 2012. About forty people attended the event, including a few children. We learnt about oil painting techniqes as Lol painted a picture. He used large brushes to get a lot of close detail.

Lol started at the top, with the backround, and gradually worked down the canvas to the foreground, finally adding a couple of trees. You can see how he did it in the pictures below. Finally the painting was raffled. The happy winner is shown in the last photo with her prize.

As well as having an enjoyable time, we raised £275 for the Church Heating Fund. Many thanks to Lol, Adrienne and all who supported the event.
