Good course on oil painting basics, Good for artists who want to know how to start oil painting.
I thought this class was very informative. I am new to oil painting so the best part for me was to watch the steps involved so I could see what setting up, mixing paint and actually painting with oils looked like. I will watch this one again and create a painting along with it.
Thank you Stefanie for this detailed and very clear class ! It is very helpful for beginners with oil painting as you go through all the steps of creation.
