“I never thought I would paint with oil paints let alone paint a portrait in oil. Demystifying Color is a fabulous class whether new to oils or an experienced oil painter looking to get into portraiture. A great step by step approach using a limited palette provides a great foundation to both color theory and portraiture.”
