Learn to Paint in Oils
Paint a seascape, landscape, animals and more in oils! Oils are a wonderful painting medium. They have
a creamy consistency, create beautiful mixtures and they are very forgiving. Learn about composition,
value, color mixing and how to create depth in a painting! If you don't have oils, I can supply you with
some the first lesson.
You will  just need to bring a canvas. After the first lesson, if you'd like to continue,
I'll provide a list of supplies to bring to your next lesson. I require a two-hour session the first time we meet
to allow sketching in your subject and applying the first layer of paint. After the initial lesson, you decide
how often you'd like to meet depending on your schedule and budget.

"I’ve had an amazing experience
with Eleanor. Though I had no
previous experience with oil paint,
she inspires me to never give up.
I’m extremely happy with the work
I've created and couldn't have
done it without her. I look forward
to each and every lesson."

My son, Michael, has been taking drawing
lessons with Eleanor for five months. His
drawing skills and technique have improved
dramatically since he's been receiving her
instruction. He finds the lessons challenging
but has thrived under her direction. Eleanor
is a patient and kind instructor and has
helped Michael find and improve his artistic
ability. She has tapped into a skill which we
could not develop on our own.
