This course is for absolute beginners and those with a little experience, so I will be guiding
you through the basics of oil painting in a structured way, tackling subjects such as the
characteristics of oil paint, how to get the most from your brushes, how to organise your
colours on your palette, how to mix colours, and how to make interesting brush marks and
design an interesting composition. I hope students will leave the course feeling confident to
explore the world of oil painting further.
