I took a figure painting class my final year of school and I ended up being very happy with my work. I got a better handle of the medium and learned a lot about many prominent oil painters. I used the class to experiment with my techniques and I felt by the end of the semester, that my skills in the medium had improved tremendously. This class made me want to paint all day. Yay, for messy oil paint and sometimes naked bodies. You have helped me learn.
