What I fell in love with about oil paintings is the same thing I fell in love with about tattooing, it has a rich almost alchemical and mystical history. It is rich with information and subtleties allowing those that love learning an endless supply of continual education.

My goal is not to teach you how to paint what I paint. But to learn to enjoy the medium of oils as much as I do and leave with a better understanding of its capabilities and how you can apply it to your own subject matter and style.

  • Friday: Oil Painting Basics (3 hours)
    • introduction to materials, palette setup, surface preparation, drawing transfer and more. This is the foundational material that makes the process of painting more enjoyable as you will have a better understanding of what your materials do and why.
  • Saturday: Early Stage of Painting (3 hours)
    • This day begins with a demo as I walk through the early stages of beginning the painting. Then students will have time to begin a small painting of their own.
  • Sunday: The Late Stages of painting (3 Hours)
    • Of course we are compressing a lot of information into a short seminar, but here we will discuss layering paint, varnishing a dry painting and displaying and turning final art into prints, This day will contain both demos and students applying the skills.
