Organization of the painting classes 


After a first course entirely dedicated to the preparation and control of colors, I guide you step by step in the realization of a still life. This is the best exercise to learn how to paint, tame your color palette, handle the oil painting and manipulate your brush.


Then we work on new topics of your choice such as landscapes and seascapes. The goal is to learn how to work with backgrounds and color gradients, paint skies and clouds, the sea and landscapes, learn to master the light and represent the shadows. It is also a matter of constructing one's painting by applying the great principles of composition and the rules of perspective.
