The fundamentals of oil painting. Basic materials, palettes and techniques.

In this fundamental class we will show you how to start painting with oils. We will start with materials, basic rules of oil painting and an instructor demo.
In the following weeks you will learn different color palettes and you will paint many small paintings with the alla prima method. Meaning wet in wet before the paint has cured. Step by step we will raise the difficulty of subjects and color palettes. Which will optional accordion to your individual learning speed. A instructor will be present at all times to help you with your painting and questions.

Ideally you already have some drawing skills so you can focus on painting during this class. If you are not familiar with things like values, edges and shape design or you are a complete beginner we recommend to take our Fundamental Drawing Class first or along this class.
