Can I complete the course in oil paints

The demonstrations have been designed to utilize the quick-drying properties of acrylics and to work around all the issues they can have.

If you work with oils, the smart palette I use is available in acrylic and oil, so you could transfer most of the skills and pigments but you’ll find the glazing layered approach on the first tutorial impossible to achieve in the same time frame that I demonstrate in.

If you add a quick drying medium, such as Liquin into your paints and waited for each layer to dry, you’d still get really good results as the principals of all the tutorials stem from classical oil painting.
