My mind is blown at the detail in this short course! I am transitioning after a lifetime (29 years!) of sketching and a decade of using acrylics to oils and couldn't really find a great starting platform - until I came across this course. Having followed your fantastic artwork for a few years now I didn't grudge a penny, knowing I would be learning from such high caliber, wonderful artists. My oil journey is just beginning but I am thankful for the great starting point I now have and can go forth with way more confidence than I had beforehand. I am REALLY excited to start this new journey and thank you so much for helping me on my way. Love and blessings, from Scotland!
