Learn how to know what you really want to say in your work and the practical methods to say it. Packed with lectures and detailed hands-on demonstrations this workshop is for oil painters who are ready to take their work to the next level. This workshop is as close to mentorship as workshops get. You’ll work with Tina’s professional models, gorgeous costumes and Tina right by your side as you create a finished oil painting.
