Oil sample 1 Oil Sample 2 Oil Sample 3

This fun class is for beginning to advanced students.
We start by shooting photos of yourself, a single family member or friend, that you will use as reference. Learn how to lay out the basic form of any head, then draw, or project, onto stretched canvas as a guide for your painting.
We will cover fundamental and advanced oil techniques, from blocking in to glazing and blending, color mixing and useful mediums. The instructor will help you directly at every stage and do demos as needed to give you a clear understanding of a variety of techniques for painting realistic faces, skin tones, cloth and hair.
You will be surprised at how well you do, so bring a friend to the first class to set up a good photo to work from.
