Underpainting Techniques for Oil Painting

Have you wanted to achieve the effects of light and vibrancy that you see in Old Master paintings? Do you want to improve the accuracy of the composition and values in your work? This class will teach traditional underpainting techniques with oil paint that can help you accomplish those goals.

Breaking a painting down into as many discreet steps as possible allows you to focus on one small part of the process at a time. The result is a more accurate representation of what you are depicting and an easier journey to the finished painting. Additionally, there are effects of light that can only be achieved through layering over underpainting. This class will cover the purpose and mechanics of underpainting with oil paint and we will work from still lifes to create finished work using this method.
