Discover the joy of painting with oils from a life model. This course introduces techniques that will help you master this rich and versatile painting medium.
In first 4 weeks we be painting like the old masters using transparent glazes, then over the next 2 weeks trying out expressive techniques of palette knife painting and “Alla Prima”.
I will be painting alongside you demonstrating how oils work and different techniques.
I keep a fume free studio and use newly invented mediums and solvents to achieve this.
