Do you currently paint with acrylic paints and wish you could switch over to oils? Rooney shows you how to paint loose and colorfully with oil paints in the alla prima (from the Italian “all at once”) style in hours versus days! Rooney’s easygoing, down-home personality and generous teaching style are a joy to experience. Working indoors, students become familiar with a variety of materials, equipment and processes essential to the oil painting process. With step-by-step instruction, learn how to draw with a brush, lay out the initial composition, and blending and applying oil paints, working from colorful still life arrangements and photographs.
