Whether you're a beginner looking to develop good habits or more experienced and looking to break some bad ones, this class can help. While demystifying the oil painting process, you'll work from direct observation to develop greater hand-to-eye coordination. Basically, “see it, paint it”. You will also learn step-by-step methods of color mixing, making form by blending, and many of the do's and don't's of composition. “Remember, oil painting is a simple process but not necessarily an easy one. Nothing worthwhile ever is.” Call for materials list. Check out Ski’s blog at http://skiholm.blogspot.com
