Excellent Introduction to Oil Painting - Indispensable For Beginners

I'm a beginner artist trying out different mediums and enjoying every minute and learning so much. Edward covers the entire gamut of required skills and knowledge such as establishing the initial sketch, incorporating the all important perspective and techniques for producing the most authentic looking seascapes. His techniques, such as for drawing with a paintbrush, have shaved years off my the time I would have had to spend skilling up. Highly recommended.

Breaking Down The Complex Into Attainable Simplicity

I really like the way this class breaks down how to actually paint a picture. It gives you the detail needed to complete a project. Also, by seeing all the steps down to the color palette and how he mixes color on it, it seems more attainable. I really think I will benefit more from this than many of the other classes I have taken.
