This class is set up so that you can learn at your own pace. It's all about oil painting - how to block out oils on various surfaces such as canvas and gessoed panels, how to drybrush, scumble, glaze, paint thick and thin. We'll work over drawings from reference shots or photos you bring in.
This class is a beginning oil class, but covers enough techniques that even advanced painters will enjoy it. As an illustrator, I've used all kinds of methods, from underpainting with acrylic or gouache, to working with oil on paper for a watercolor look. In the end, it comes down understanding how oil paint reacts, how to apply it and blend the edges, and how to mix mediums to make it flow. I'll go over all this and more in this fun class.
