Over 10 weeks, Oonagh will conduct online painting classes, during which you will explore with her all the basics of how to paint with acrylics. Each week, Oonagh will approach a different topic, and teach you the basics. This will include colour mixing, still life composition, portraits, landscape, and many more techniques. Oonagh will also share her ongoing works during a virtual visit of her studio.
