Raw Umber Challenge - Oil Painting
Lizet Dingemans
For 4 weeks, starting November 16th 2020, we’re running oil painting challenges.

Every week we’ll have a theme, and you’ll have 7 days to create a painting that reflects that theme. You can then post your work on instagram and hashtag it with #rawumberchallenge.

At the end of each week we’ll choose one painting and award the painter £25 of Jackson’s Art vouchers (or the equivalent if you’re outside the UK).

At the start of each week, on Mondays at 8pm UK time, we’ll stream a tutorial video showing how Lizet Dingemans has approached the theme. She’ll paint for an hour and discuss various topics ranging from materials and tools to techniques and brushwork. If you watch the session, you can follow her advice, paint from a photograph we’ll provide, paint something else of your choice, or use the session however you like – it’s completely up to you.

Although some of the videos are only available to subscribers, anybody can take part in the challenge.
