New to oil painting? This is my foundational how-to-paint course. It is an intensive study of the basics of painting with traditional oils for the beginner. Students will gain a good working knowledge of equipment, supports, brush selection, brushwork, mixing color and mediums. You will learn the how and why of oil painting using the direct painting technique in making still life paintings. There are 3 misconceptions about oil painting; they smell bad, take forever to dry and are hard to master. All of these statements are just outdated. We do not use solvents so no bad smells (or affects). If you use a proper painting medium, oils can dry overnight. To me, oils are actually the easiest, most forgiving of all mediums once you learn how to hold and use an artist’s brush. Each lesson has demonstrations of the techniques with guided hands on experience.
