About This Class

Be a more effective and confident oil painter and portrait artist! I will cover basics of oil paint, from materials and methods to a brief discussion of how painting from life will help you paint from photo reference and use color more effectively, as well as give tips and tricks on portraiture and likenesses.

I will walk you through the class project, a 1 hour self-portrait assignment from life, by demonstrating my own process and what goals I try to keep in mind with each painting.

It really helps to improve your painting skills also to grow confidence in your brush strokes.
Very skilled and detailed with tips
I'd recommend this class for those who already have some drawing & painting experience. She explains her process very well and quickly. She also gives a very good explanation as to why painting from life is helpful, cool and why solely using photo reference shouldn't be heavily relied upon.
