With little else going on, the lockdown is an excellent time to try something new.
If you’ve always wondered how oil painters manage to get every brushstroke just so, professional artist Diarmaid O’Sullivan is giving away all the insider secrets in a four-week ‘Paint Along Sessions’ online painting experience, starting on January 23rd.
The four-week oil painting class is run through Zoom so you can join in from your kitchen or living room and Diarmaid guides the class through an oil painting from start to finish, giving live tips and feedback along the way.
The best bit? The price includes a pack containing everything you need, delivered to your door.
Here’s how it works: Once you book the four-week painting session (€120), you will be sent a starter pack with the following materials; An image to work from, pre-mixed oil paints, a canvas panel, a brush set, a colour wheel and a coloured pencil. You’ll also receive Dosartist beginners class notes, odourless white spirit and colour checkers.
“The most important thing is that we all enjoy nice relaxing two-and-a-half hours of painting each week to see us through the lockdown,” says Diarmaid.
“We will share some laughs along the way, learn a bit and ultimately come away with an oil painting to hang on our walls at the end.”
