"Evil Queen" Oil Painting by Derek Gundy

Get started in oil under the guidance of NCAD Professor & Illustrator Derek Gundy.

If you've wanted to begin oils, this introduction class will give you a both a good understanding of the medium AND all the materials & tools you'll need to get started.

Each student will receive a M. Graham 5 color oil paint set, with two walnut oil mediums for those who wish to paint solvent free. Also included in the kit will be a hog bristle brush set, palette, palette knife, silicoil brush cleaning jar, and an 8x10 canvas board as a painting surface.

Students will learn about proper methods of perparing surfaces, mixing and applying value & color, and special additive mediums to alter the drying time of paints.

Derek Gundy has been painting professionally for over 25 years. He is a co-founder of Sketch Seattle, teaching workshops on location in Seattle, WA, and also teaches drawing and painting at Northwest College of Art & Design in Tacoma, WA. You can learn more about the artist and his paintings at

For those students wanting more in depth instruction on oil painting techniques, we recommend Derek's three week class Oil Painting Studio. Learn more about building a strong composition, color mixing, paint application, and general artistry. Students are responsible for their own supplies in this class.
