Hello, I have done a small amount of sketching. I discovered Mark Carder about ten years ago and was always meaning to try it out but was never settled enough. The set up seems quite daunting as I have never really painted properly before and as I am living in Thailand, I am finding it very difficult to get supplies. There are no decent art shops where I live in Phuket. I have finally got a small room that I can use as a studio. All the specific materials just seem very hard to come by, even ordering online. It's something you get used to here but frustrating all the same.
Also, is it difficult to start with oil paints not having really painted before?
If anyone knows a way to have supplies such as paint, brushes and other items required for this course, that can be delivered to this region, I would be very grateful.
Thanks & regards,
