This is a comprehensive photo realistic oil painting course from an experienced and renown Photo Realistic artist. The tutorial is full of around 7 hours of practical advice and insights that help you learn all about painting water covered rocks realistically with oil paints onto a square canvas.
"I have tried to cover everything I could think of that students would need to know. From what paints to use, workspace, how to use oil paints and so much more! This course is cram packed with so much information you can refer back to for a life time! I am so excited about this resource being available to all those that have a passion to learn!"
Learning this photo realistic style from Heather is a perfect grounding to set you off in whatever direction you feel you would like to go in painting, whether it is to explore finer detail, or to move towards an abstract style. You can be a beginner or have had a lot of experience, everyone will enjoy the journey.
"I will share with you some of my own personal stories, and passion behind my art as well as all the little details I have learnt to make the painting environment work best. We will look at the products/paints/images that help me win, and ways to explore your own journey. And many hours of video of me explaining rock by rock colour by colour how to produce a beautiful painting."
This course is equivalent to 4 two hour private sessions with Heather but with more information packed into the same time! You will have a good grounding of information and direction to help you paint a Photo Realistic painting of Rocks in oils after completing this course. The painting in this course is 30 x 30cm. (which takes around 8 - 10 hours to complete) But you can use any square size you like, and as big as you like. The bigger you go the more detail you can do!

Hey there! Welcome to my site! I am passionate about helping people find their creative voice.
I currently own a gallery in the Dandenong Ranges, Melbourne, Australia where I teach painting and other creative courses both in my studio and online! My career began when I became a finalist in the Tasmanian Glover Prize in 2013 & in the Fleurieu Art Prize in Adelaide. I have also held numerous exhibitions over the years and produced 2 books and many online courses based on my works and have been featured in numerous publications both in Australia and overseas.
Having grown up in rural Victoria and then lived in Tasmania for almost 20 years, nature and community has been a big part of my world. When I burnt out many years ago, I needed something to help me find comfort and direction. I fell in love with painting nature in a photorealistic way during this time, then went on to teach others.
Space jump 10 years or so I now have over 100 students a week, many who have said painting has changed their lives, as it did mine! I have many stories to share and look forward to connecting with you through these online courses! Hope you can join me.
