About This Class

This class is meant to be a basic overview of oil painting for absolute beginners who may have wanted to start practicing with oil paints but donn't know where to start. In this class I will go over basic materials that you'll need to get started without spending a fortune! The rest of the lessons will be about making simple 3-5 value studies that will allow you to get a better sense of moving the paint on a surface and controlling value ranges to create simple pictures. While there are literally tons of ways to paint with oils, this will be a basic 'primer' class to help those get started.
