Brief course description
Many beginners are intimidated by oil painting and paint with acrylics instead. The approach of painting in layers using oils can be difficult to control leading to spoiled colors. A way to solve this transition is to use acrylics to lay out the painting and then move onto oils to complete the painting. By following a simple step-by-step process the transition to oil painting can be done quickly and easily.
