I haven't had an art lesson in 17 years and I'm so glad I decided to book the Introduction to Oil Painting. In the past I've mainly focused on drawing, so it was great to try something new. Sophie is very warm and welcoming and puts you at ease straight away. All you inhibitions go out the door, because encourages you to be expressive and abstract. Sophie shared some great professional tips for oil painting, from the types of brushes to use, priming your canvas, building up images and making your picture feel cohesive. I would really recommend booking with Sophie to get your creative juices flowing.
