Still Life in Oil with Marc Rubin

 (Continuing - Advanced Level)


Marc Rubin's approach to painting starts with placing many thin layers of paint and medium to create and amazing illusion of realism. From breathing exercises to brush work, Marc shares the techniques he uses when working through the technical and mental challenges painters face in composing and capturing convincing still life paintings.
