The magic of oil painting, the luxury, the texture, the tones, the sheen! Learning how to paint is a lesson worth learning. You will get the best results with this type of painting and impress the unimpressionable! Do not fear we can all paint and there is no need to be intimidated, oils are not as difficult as you think. You can achieve great mixing power and depth of colour with these pricey paints. Once you get into the flow there will be no turning back to dull old acrylics! You will learn about type of brushes and application of paint and appropriate surfaces including wood and canvas. You will learn about layering varnishing and drying all one day.

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.
