  • The method of sight-size to create realistic paintings

  • Imprimitura and Under-painting

  • Oil Painting mediums 

  • Understanding Oil paint: how to paint a painterly painting, build impastos and avoid cracking


Students may choose to either paint from life a still life of their choosing, copy a photo or a master's work.

A short demo will start each class. Students will then work on their projects with Elena’s guidance. 

Elena will give personal instruction for each student’s level of experience. Every student will work on individual projects and receive personalized feedback.  Advanced students will be challenged by more complex projects.
