Portrait painting course for beginners


I directly purchased the oil painting course, then I realised I had to finish pencil portrait course in order to understand this course. I purchased both the courses, finished pencil portrait, now half way through oil painting. I am having fun.

After joining this course, I bought oil painting tubes for Rs. 3000. Never knew portrait painting was this easy. Worth it. Loving my time painting. I even tried live painting once.

I have been Ramya’s student for the past 4 years. I have seen her paint in real, with such patience and passion. This course teaches a lot of things like the brushes and how to prepare canvas. Now I am painting more confidently.


I am a beginner, this course is good for dummies like me. Very recently I tried a portrait from life. Now I know how to start a portrait freehand and finish it. I will be practicing more to perfect my skill. Thanks Ramya.
