Beginning oil painting will get you started or help you get back into it after a break. From start to finish we will paint still life, landscape, animals, a portrait and spend the last week completing paintings with a subject of your choice, with weekly demonstrations and critiques. Oil painting is probably the easiest of color mediums to use when you know how to proceed, but can be difficult to figure out on your own. Philip Newsom has been painting and illustrating professionally for 20 years, doing everything from pet portraits to children’s books to abstract art for galleries. He will help you with what you want to do, rather than tell you what to paint. Bring your own supplies from the suggested list below.
