Organisation of the oil painting classes 

After a first class entirely dedicated to the preparation and mastery of colours, I guide you step by step in the realisation of a still-life. This is the best exercise to learn how to paint, tame your color palette, manage oil paint and manipulate your brush.


Then we work on new subjects of your choice such as landscapes and seascapes. The goal is then to learn how to work with backgrounds and color gradations, paint skies and clouds, the sea and landscapes, learn to master light and represent shadows. It is also about building a painting by applying the main principles of composition and the rules of perspective.
