Painting on Plaster, Inspired by Vincent Van Gogh

By Paula Briggs

Inspired by Vincent Van Gogh's "Sprig of flowering almond in a  glass", this resource shares a method for painting on plaster, with oil pastel, linseed oil and graphite. It includes drawing exercises to explore composition, setting up an individual still life to encourage close looking,  using a viewfinder, and then enabling an open-ended exploration of painting. The method could easily be transfered to many themes, or you could paint on card rather than plaster block. Suitable for all ages.
