The Painted Surface




Bring the surfaces of your oil paintings to life.

You can now catch up with Norman’s 6 session online painting course investigating the rich possibilities of oil paint for creating varied and exciting surfaces in your paintings. Starting with a discussion of materials and taking inspiration from artwork of all eras, you will be given painting challenges to expand your range of mark-making. Classes include clear examples and demonstrations from Norman Long. You will be able to share your work via a private Facebook group.


You will receive links to the 6 Video recordings of the sessions, allowing you to work through the exercises at your own pace.
