About This Class

Welcome to this Photo to Oil Painting Workshop! In it, I'll show you 

  • how to take a simple looking photo and find a pleasing composition in it, 
  • do a value study to get the shapes and values clarified
  • choose a color scheme based on the mood you want the final painting to have
  • adjust the drawing to accentuate the feel of the painting and 
  • finally, paint the scene with confidence that it will turn into a successful painting!


Come, join me in this adventure where I paint this painting and explain to you my process and thinking behind my brushstrokes!

See you in the class!
