Basics of Oil Painting

Basics of Oil Painting
    • General

      In this course, you have five practice exercises. You will learn about colours and shapes. How to paint a vase of flowers, how to paint a landscape, how to paint fruit, how to paint the nude.  The last subject will be composition.

      In the end, I give some examples of abstract art.

      The quiz counts for your badge but the assignment counts more the quiz counts 40% and the assignment 60% of your final grade.

      The preparatory quizzes in each unit do not count for your final grade. I advise you to answer them, yet to finish the course all you need is to answer the final quiz and do the assignment, which you pass if you have a 50% average or more.
