Hi all, as an introduction I only recently started art in 2015 with an online course in graphite. I moved on to colored pencils and now trying pastels. I like pastel the best so far.
I recently found Mark’s YouTube channel and loved his work, watched a few and love his teaching style, which led me here. Started looking at the work produced by you folks in this forum and all I can say is wow! Perhaps I’m in the wrong place and need to look for a more beginner level place.
Never touched oils before, but I just picked up the Gamblin artists grade introduction set, along with cheep brushes and canvas panels, and white Gesso, knives… I made Mark’s easel and color checker. I’m ready to go.
One review stated that one of his courses was great but that he started to stop teaching during the actual painting process. Not sure that would be appropriate for someone who never touched oils, a brush or canvas before and would love to know your take on it. Are these courses for the absolute beginner or does it assume some painting knowledge?
thanks for your time.
