Begin oil painting


Caroline has been painting in oils for 50 years. Processes and products have moved on greatly in that time. Making it much less smelly (no turps at easel).

Ideas have changed as well, traditionally a dark underpaint was placed on the canvas but now a plain white (gessoed) canvas is favoured.

Caroline can teach ALL the ALLA PRIMA (all in one go) processes of oil painting on Begin Oils click

A longer course is necessary to learn the 'traditional' (7 layers) oil painting method.
