Venus drawing – Aura


Hi Matt,

thank you for your encouraging critique and the Saturday class once again. I’m really enjoying the new dimension this has added to the experience of your website! Also, I am so happy for the new oil painting class you uploaded to the website. I’ve been trying for some time now to switch from acrylics to oil paints but oil paint is not intuitive, as acrylics can be, and although I’ve been spending a considerable amount of time watching tutorials on youtube and reading about it and understanding it in theory I find it difficult to set it off. However, there is something about your teaching approach and techniques that really clicks with me every time, so I can hardly wait to sink my teeth into this course. I also started your Begin here step by step for oil painting, thank you for bringing it to the website. 

For this week I just wanted to upload something, so here is a quick very small sketch of a Titian painting. The head is very small and I could’t get the tilt right.

Could it be possible sometime to do a Saturday live class on composition? Those first composition-themed pages in your Strathmore newsprint pad you showed us on Saturday looked very inspiring.

Thank you and have a great week!
