Welcome to the Web Art Academy Club!
We are fine art teachers Natalie Richy and Vladimir London, and have created the Web Art Academy for fine art students who want to learn traditional oil painting and drawing techniques.
The fine art video lessons presented in the Club are valuable for both beginning and advanced students. If you have just recently started your fine art education, this course would be very helpful to obtain a good understanding of oil painting methods. If you already have knowledge and experience in painting, this course would still provide many advanced know-how strategies you could use to improve your painting techniques.
You will discover what oil painting is and what materials such as oil paints, painting brushes, mediums and solvents you should use; explain to you in the multi-layer oil painting process as well as other oil painting techniques.
Before we begin with a description of the oil painting materials and oil painting process, we shall tell you why should you be listening to us today.
