Welcome To The Class! Let Talk Materials
Welcome To The Oil Painting Class!
Oil painting is a great medium! However too many times beginning students feel lost as how to use and control the medium effectively. This class is the first of many to teach how to use oil paint effectively and confidently. I recommend to get the most out of this class to take the Beg. Drawing 1 and Beg. Drawing 2 first before taking this class. I tell my students all the time the better you can draw the better you can paint. Because with both drawing and painting we confront the challenges of value, shape and perspective. As painters we add the challenges of color. The classes are recorded in real time so you can sit down with me and create a painting and practice the exercises. You will want to paint along side me. Just watching the videos won't teach you very much.
So let's get started with the materials we need to start painting I am including a list of suggested materials for the class.
