>Explore the world of oil painting guided by award-winning artist and educator, Rachel Milne. In this 1 day intensive course you'll explore the fundamentals of oil painting.

In this beginner workshop, Rachel will provide practical tips on how to set-up your workspace using the correct brushes, equipment and the differences between acrylics and oils. You'll learn mark-making skills and explore the benefits and pitfalls of working with oils.
