What you'll learn in this oil painting class:

Master the effects of glowing skin, soft shadows, silky hair and unforgettable eyes! Learn to use traditional oil painting technique of XVII century, leading your work from the grisaille underpainting to glazes.

This amazing technique can be applied to any genre of realistic painting. I am currently working on paintings of people riding subway.

Detailed Schedule:

  • Day 1: Human head and neck proportions and anatomy overview. Priming. Finalizing drawing on canvas.
  • Day 2: Making an underpainting (1st layer of painting) in grisaille.
  • Day 3: Color application: painting shadows, halftones, lights and highlights.
  • Day 4: Finalizing and pulling all work together, working on glazes.
