This two-day intensive will show you how to capture the photographic look of a glass or metal object with oil paint. On the first day we will dive straight into mixing paint and blocking in the general colours of our reference image. On the second day, we can work right back into the wet paint to finish any final adjustments. Realism can be easy when you know the simple time-tested process.
