Oil painting demonstration by Bruce Mulcahy

Bruce gave a demonstration of how he paints outdoors in oils onto board. He also showed us techniques of applying the oils and manipulating them when still wet.
He uses warm and cool blues, reds and yellows together with burnt umber and white. These can be used to create most colours.
He works quickly to try to finish the painting in one session, painting the changeable areas as early as possible.
Bruce worked from a photograph of a harbour. The demonstration piece still needed work to include finer details.
