This great medium brings depth and atmosphere to any subject. You will learn how to mix colours and how to build layers of paint to capture the power of nature.

With a heavy focus on wildlife and landscape painting this art course will get you inspired to paint all manner of subjects.

You don’t need any former experience as you will be guided every step of the way in an informal and sociable group.

A great brand for professional work. Once you know that oils are right for you then this list will see you produce astonishing results! Please note that this list is a bare minimum and there are some beautiful ranges to choose from when expanding your range :D. Alongside those I use in my session I have also included links to some of my other favourite brands.
