Painting in Oils ~ Explore and Enhance Your Work: 4 Sessions

Still Life by Elaine Carpenter

Oil painting by Elaine Carpenter

From the Instructor: My challenge as a teaching/working artist is to break down the oil painting process in a logical and, hopefully, clear progression. This process will combine introducing the basic elements such as sketching, composition, color, value, light and edges. Your practice of the painting skills can, with a little luck, last a lifetime!
