This online 1-on-1 training and coaching is aimed for those individuals who want to learn how to paint in oils. As a personal coach I can also guide you with your own work.
This service is suitable for beginners as well as more advanced students.
During some sessions, students and myself will paint along different topics as well as work on targeted exercises to learn how to mix paint and use colour.
Students will be also given small projects to complete in between sessions. This will ensure that students do practice on their own in order to develop the skill. Students will be asked to present their work on the next session.
Tuition will be tailored according to the student's needs. Here is a list of topics that we will cover:
Knowing your tools and materials including health/safety.
Basic drawing, shapes, angles, perspective
Light and shadow and its use to create form.
Using oil paint, media, brush work
Understanding colour, tonal values, saturation and how to mix colours
Isolating and matching colour
Still life painting*
*We will focus on specific subject matter depending on individual preferences.
Skies including clouds
Mixing greens. Creating a landscape with variations of greens.
Painting from photography
Painting using limited palette
FEES The fee is AU$ 225 for 3 sessions of 2 hours each (6 hrs total). I can be flexible with time, so we can run a one hour class if and when needed, up to a total of 6 hours. If you want to have a one off session without committing to 6 hours, the fee is AU$ 60 / hr
You can quit at any time. A deposit is required from individuals committing themselves to the class.
HOW IT WORKS If interested please contact me through the contact form and we will discuss your needs. Once we agree about the way forward we will also set up an appointment for the first session. Fees will have to be paid ahead. After payment is received I will send you a link, using Restream or Zoom, that you will use to join the session. Restream can be used on any kind of device including mobile phones, iPad and PCs, as long as it has a camera. The application does not require a software installation. Recordings of the session can be done if you choose to use Zoom. No recordings are given if using Restream.

COPYRIGHT OF SOURCE MATERIAL It is important to note that I will prohibit any use of material downloaded from the internet and intended to be copied during the class with the intention to sell your work. It is allowed to copy old masters paintings/drawings with the intention to learn techniques and approach. The classes are intended for you to learn how to paint and to use the acquired skills to develop your own original artwork.
