I am pleased to announce that my popular online painting class, 'Patina and Verdigris', is now available as a self-paced course.
"Patina finishes are warm, rich, organic and dynamic! They embody the appearance of time-worn age and mellowing from the elements while evoking a sense of timeless elegance. "
This course features all the tools and techniques you will need in order to create beautifully painted backgrounds or stand-alone works of art.
Many of the women who have taken this class previously are still using these techniques in their current works and offerings. They have embraced the techniques and made them their own, expanding their skill set and enlarging their toolbox.
There are seven videos and PDF's, which you will be able to access and download immediately. Subject matter includes:
- Basic verdigris finish
- Adding stencils to the backgrounds
- Stenciling with texture
- Creating a beautifully embossed, elegant finish
- Bonus: Three different Patina recipes
- Bonus (2 videos): Adding a face to the background
Whether you are a beginner or seasoned painter, these techniques are easy to learn and use.

What students are saying about this course...
"Patina and Verdigris with Ree Altavilla is one of the best courses I have ever taken. It has really influenced my painting in a big way. I am still fascinated by these effects, and I continue to play with them in the studio to this day". ~ Michal Shimoni
I have extensive experience as a Master Faux Painter and Decorative Artist. I love bringing the techniques I used for my clients' homes to practical use on the canvas. My love of texture, color, and pattern developed as I lived in Italy and Greece during my young adulthood. The memories of the patina and worn plaster on the walls and buildings of the villages I lived in was imprinted in my artist's soul, and I strive to recreate their elegance and grace wherever possible.
