Oil Paints
1h 2m 36s

Instructor Chris Legaspi shares various ways to render your drawings and paintings, using a variety of different materials. Chris uses his approachable, thorough teaching style to make the often-intimidating rendering stage accessible to artists of all levels. In this lesson, he shows the ease with which you can “draw” with paint. As he pushes and removes his medium around with paper towel, treating the thick oil paint a lot like charcoal, you’ll learn that oil paints aren’t as daunting as they seem. Chris does two demonstrations from reference, of a hand and a male head. Find the references attached to this page.
