Fundamentals of Oil Painting


A Class in Landscape Painting
Structured for Beginners and Experienced Painters

My classes have a very structured approach to landscape painting. I teach a method of building an oil painting beginning with basic concepts. The classes are small (10 or fewer students) so that I can spend time with each student developing techniques at their own pace.
