The course consists of 9 lessons in which I will tell you everything I know about oil painting - why some paints are expensive and others are cheap, how to work in layers, how to dilute oil paints, and together we will create a few paintings. I will also give recommendations on materials that I myself have been using for years.

It’s suitable for all levels. From people who never tried oils before to those who already created a lot of paintings but still feel like there are more possibilities to discover.

My aim is to make you feel confident and have fun in the world of oil painting.
  • Oil Paints
    Why can one red paint cost 10 times more than another? Do you need a professional line or can you save some money?

    We’ll also discuss what symbols can be found on a tube of paint and what they are for. And what is actually inside the tube.
  • Taking care of materials
    You will learn how to properly prepare your palette and brushes for work, so the painting process will bring even more pleasure. And how to make your materials last for years.
  • Mediums
    We will discuss what it is. In what situations to use each of the types. And how to make sure that the picture is preserved for a long time.

    Knowledge about mediums will come in handy when dry matte areas will suddenly appear on your painting. Or if the top layer is so sticky that every speck of dust will glue to it. And you will know what to do without panic.
  • Canvases
    Why does everyone love linen canvases? I will show you what is the difference between canvases of different price, and what consequences the use of low-quality materials can lead to.
  • ... and, of course, we will paint
    We will discuss and test different painting techniques, and create a few artworks.
