My name is Kostas and living on a beautiful place called Porto Rafti near Athens, Greece. The courses found here are very enjoyable and valuable for me. Thanks for such an offer Mark! I'm retired naval officer and wannabe painter :-) I'm painting the last 3-4 years. I'm looking forward for sharing things about oil painting in general. I love to paint all kind of subjects like landscapes and seascapes but I'm fascinated by portraiture and still life.
