Challenge yourself to dig deeper and further develop your work. Gain more experience and confidence through further exploration in your oil painting practice.

  • Discussions on composition, planning, and editing to “build” a painting.
  • Experiment with additional techniques to add texture, unique mark-making and layering to your paintings.
  • Further explore how to create special effects with Galkyd, Galkyd Gel and Neo Megilp.
  • Instructor demonstrations each week. Demos and examples will have a landscape focus. Experienced artists can translate these ideas and techniques to the focus of your own nature-based work.
