Oil Painting Class Project

In my Intermediate Oil Painting Classes, students normally work on individual  projects, consistent with their personal artistic goals.

Carol Catt
Sometimes we do a class project from my demonstration to study a specific skill, technique, or painting approach.  

Carolyn Gallegos
These are a few of the oil studies from a project designed to help students paint faster and more freely.  We also emphasized the variety of colors in the shadow of the adobe wall.

It's fun to see how each painting is different as it reflects the personality of the artist, although all were painted from the same reference.
