Oil Painting General Chat / Re: Portrait paintings in oil
« Last post by MaryAnne Long on Today at 01:38:47 AM »
GPeachy,

Good to see you back.

Looks like I am the first one to see this, so will answer what I can.

1. Any kind of painting classes helps build skills.  What kind of skills are you most in need of?  If you plan on doing portraits, Paintbasket has a huge range of portrait classes that can help you build the skill set you will need.

2. Since most portraits are longer than wider, a 12 x 12 square would not be as desirable as an 14 x 11 canvas.

3. Unfortunately, Nolan and Dennis no longer do live classes, but are releasing new taped lessons periodically.

Look forward to seeing your work soon.

aloha

Oil Painting General Chat / Portrait paintings in oil
« Last post by GPeachy on Today at 12:32:57 AM »
Hello everyone, I am back after a couple of years hiatus, it is great to be back. I am starting out with oil painting this time and have a couple of questions about the portraits paintings.

1. Are they definitely recommended to help build skill?
2. What size canvas is good for these, would 12 x 12 work or is it better to work from a larger canv
3. And general question, is Nolan still doing live monthly classes?

 :thankyou:
