Join Dominik for a full day of painting as he walks you through oil painting techniques and their application in landscape painting.  Oil paint has been most artists’ first choice for hundreds of years, and with good reason.  The colours are gorgeous, you can do anything with them, and they last forever.  Oil painting is an extremely flexible medium adaptable to any range of techniques and styles.

You will be introduced to safely using oil paints, how to mix colours to create a palette, basic colour theory, how to prepare a surface for painting, how to complete a painting, and how to use various brushes for different effects.  This class is geared towards people who want to try oil painting for the first time, or people who want to improve their skills in mixing colours, composition, and brush techniques.

Students will be working along with Dominik in step-by step approach in order to create their own studio oil painting.


If you can, use professional quality paints for colour quality and intensity.

Please bring your favorite group of paints. My suggestion for pigments selection is as follows:
