Registration is Now Open for My New Online Art Class

Registration is now open for my New Online Class!


Do you love the look of old masters' paintings? Do you want to work on your portrait painting skills? Have you always wanted to try oils?  Practice doesn't make perfect, but it does make progress! Learn to paint portraits with me using both oils and acrylic paints! If you aren't ready to try oils, we will be doing a portrait in acrylics as well, plus many of the oil painting techniques can be used in acrylic painting.

 have been painting for about 25 years. During some of those years, I ran a mural painting business where I was often asked to recreate old master paintings on the walls and ceilings of  both residential and commercial spaces.  i.e. Michelangelo, Turner, Monet, etc. During this 5 week online course, I will show you tips and tricks I have learned along the way to get the look of old time paintings, but in a smaller scale than a mural! Learn old master techniques to create oil portraits and apply these learnings to the acrylic painting process in this 5 week online course.
