    I took this lesson and “how to paint a rose in oil” class to myself as a birthday present. 😀
    I am very happy and excited. I want to start as soon as possible.

    As someone new to oils (watercolorist) I was somewhat intimidated by this new (to me) medium that the Masters used. I looked at hundreds of tutorials and watched many videos often coming away with more questions than I had before. Then I found Nolan Clark & The Paint Basket and I felt I had FINALLY found THE ONE!
    In Nolan I found a teacher who demonstrated, step by step how to do EVERYTHING required for oil painting. How to choose a surface, how to load your paintbrush, when & how to use medium, how to transfer an image to your surface, how do make certain brushstrokes with different brushes to acheive the look you want, how to successfully mix paint on your palette… I mean literally EVERYTHING! Unlike so many other beginner oil painting videos I had watched before Nolan’s informal style of speaking To You rather than Down To You was refreshing. He peppers his tutorials with so many useful tips and demonstrates techniques, rather than simply talking about them.
    Yes, its an older video and definitely not hi-def but I had no problems watching and found myself sitting straight in my chair, totally enthralled. After watching this video, I finally felt like “I can DO this” which I have to admit, was A FIRST for me!
    Looking to learn how to paint with oils? Look no further, Nolan is an Incredible teacher who has that rare ability that many other artists lack; the ability to Teach!
    Nolan, thanks to you my new foray into oil painting is giving me the results I had hoped for!

    Really nice to see real time action and explanations. I live in Struisbaai at the southern tip of Africa, so classes are not an option (as I think you will understand from your accent?). Been struggling alone and with YouTube, but just could not get what I needed to help with oils – no detail and just too fast – showing “what I can do” rather than “this is how to…” I will certainly follow more of your classes, and happy to pay for your help. Thankyou
