This course will teach you how to paint vibrant and fun oil portrait in a fast, easy and organised way. It is accessible for everyone, whether you have a large studio or just a tiny table. It is focused on basic oil techniques.
You will learn:
What supplies do you need (cheaper options also available)
A thing or two about colour
How to approach oil painting with help of values
How to mix colour for your portrait
How to paint in layers according to a reference
What to do after you finish painting (varnish, drying time etc)
I wanted to make sure that no one is scared of oil painting as it can be intimidating because there is a lot of misconceptions about drying time, toxicity, accessibility etc. I really would like to show that you can approach oil painting with fun and don’t have to be scared of passing out in your room.
A basic knowledge of portrait fundamentals are welcome here, as this class is not focusing on the actual head construction, but mainly on painting. If you would like to learn some fundaments on how to sketch a portrait, please take my other course - How To Draw Portraits.
However, if you do not know any fundaments, you are more than welcome to try this course as well! :)
Who this course is for:
- Beginner Oil Painters not knowing where to start
- Intermediate Artists who know some drawing fundaments and wanting to learn painting
I have always loved drawing with a pencil, especially faces. As a little kid, I used to draw celebrities and my family and friends would always like my pictures and encouraged me to create more. As I was growing up, my passion radiated towards fantasy and surreal topics and I also started experimenting with watercolor and other different media....so one can say I'm a mixed media artist.
I have not attended any art school or a long term class, therefore, I'm a self-taught artist.
As I believe that anyone can learn anything by themselves, I would love to inspire people and help them out by sharing my knowledge by teaching.
