This course is suitable for students who have completed Intro to Oil Painting Part 1, and wish develop their skills further. At a minimum, students should already possess good foundational skills in colour mixing and the colour wheel. The course will introduce a range of traditional and contemporary oil painting techniques and processes, including glazing, underpainting, photographic reference, and working with a restricted palette. Students will also learn how to mix skin tones and complete a self-portrait from life.

This course provides a taste of the many varied ways to create an oil painting and is a stepping-stone to the more advanced courses offered by the school such as Painting Drapery, and Portraiture.
