Welcome to my online oil painting course.
Modules are pay as you go with no commitment – start in your own time and you will be able to dip in and out as you like.
* Each module includes an online painting video, with accompanying notes, full instructions and painting exercise. You will retain access to the video.
*I’d then like you to photograph your resulting painting and share it with me, so that I can give you individual advice and helpful tips via email. I use photoshop to illustrate my suggestions on your painting, which makes my advice visually easy to understand.
*Pay as you go for each module – which will be £25, payable by bank transfer or Paypal.
It’s a flexible materials list, but for the course, you will need:
Oil paper or canvas/canvas boards, whichever size you prefer.
Oils – the following, or similar: titanium white, cadmium red, lemon yellow, ultramarine, pthalo blue, viridian, sap green, purple/violet, burnt umber
Brushes – a large flat, medium flat, small flat and a liner or rigger brush.
Low odour solvent ( I use Zest it)
Quick drying medium (Liquin/Zest it)
Cloth/tissue/wipes, large palette (plate is fine!)
I recommend using an easel – or at least a table easel – but its not essential!
(for the first week, paint wise – you will only need white and burnt umber (or any dark tone) this week, as it’s a tonal painting session ? a flat brush, and a surface to paint on! It is an excellent way to warm yourself up for the rest of the course – and get moving that paint around with a bit of freedom!
