Materials you need to start with

To make the most of the course we advise you to have basic knowledge of drawing or painting. It is also interesting that you have minimal knowledge of realistic painting techniques.

Regarding the materials, this is what we advise you to start with:

  • Quality oils, preferably Old Holland.
  • Medium and varnish.
  • Linen or polyester canvas with a very smooth surface.

I am very pleased with this course. My main focus was on mastering the intricacies of mixing paints and shades, as well as learning techniques for painting face details and depth. It was money well spent.
