Designed as a follow up for those students who have taken Beginning Oil Painting or have some oil painting experience. We willl continue to explore the use of oil paint with an emphasis on realism/impressionism using a limited palette. We will paint wet on wet or Alla Prima in the class. Subjects to be explored are the still life, landscape, portrait and florals. Instructor demonstrations will stress the basics of good composition, value (tone) and color. This class will also introduce ongoing history and methods of other painters both past and present. Final classes will be devoted to professional presentation including framing and reviews of local opportunities.
