About This Class

​Painting with oil colors is not difficult as it seems to many people. Oil colors are actually one of the oldest mediums of painting and also one of the most flexible mediums to work with.

I am a fine artist and have been painting with oils since last 20 years. He has had several shows of his paintings and his paintings are in private collections of companies and private individuals in 9 countries.

You do not need prior experience or a lot of expensive material to take this class and learn to paint using the method he shows.

In this class I'll walk you through his process of creating a painting based of a photo he clicked on a weekend trip. I begin with showing how I make various compositions based on the same photo and make the preliminary drawing on the oil paper using a thinned burnt sienna.  

Then I mix all the required shades of secondary and tertiary colors using a limited set of colors. Now is the time to start applying colors to the painting one by one, starting from darkest dark to lighter colors. While applying every new color, I compare that color and it's value with colors already applied to the painting.  Once all major shapes are painted, I use a small round brush and palette knife to add just enough amount of details to the painting.

Then I sign the painting and remove the masking tape border, to give the painting a finished look.

Join this class to experience a painterly journey that starts from a photo and leads us to an artistic painting!

Great teacher, explains well. Very enjoyable class!
Incredible demonstration. Even though this isn't a paint-along, it works, because it goes as a pace that allows you to visually observe the techniques and methods for creating a simple, but beautiful landscape, while not feeling tedious. I feel as though the pre-mixing section could have been slower and a bit clearer, but the demonstration was wonderful. I feel as though I have learned a lot.
