About This Class

Hey everyone! In this class I'm going to be going over a basic approach to doing a portrait sketch in oil paint. These can be fun little exercises that don't require a lot of time, and is a great way to just log in some practice with the medium and portraits as well. 

I'll be going a few different exercises on how to get started just in case you're an absolute beginner. We'll go over some palette and brush recommendations just to help you get started and you'll watch me complete a simple portrait sketch in oil.
