Oil Painting Subjects - Portraits, Landscapes, Still Life and Much More

Subject Lessons

Other subjects than those listed can of course be covered during tuition, but most interests do tend to fall within one of those common categories.  It is of course possible to include a combination of subjects within one painting, for example a figure in a landscape or a full-length portrait in a particular interior.


Although each subject has it's own ins and outs, the ability to paint each mostly depends upon learning the key foundations.  Then, it's just a matter of gaining experience and familiarity in using those foundations within each subject through one or more of the methods of oil painting.
