Although there are many new breakthroughs in education and theory in recent years, most of the oil painting teaching in art schools are basically based on subjects such as still life, plaster image, landscape, characters and so on. In the course arrangement, still life, gypsum and figures account for a large proportion, which is usually a basic learning process of more than two years. Among them, the skill training course accounts for the majority of the oil painting course, while the theory course has a relatively small share and short class time. At present, most of the oil painting courses in the major art colleges are lack of creative theory or creative practice courses, and the problem of writing graduation thesis is more worrying. Although some colleges and universities have started to use several methods to solve this problem, this situation has not been solved. In the oil painting class, the traditional classroom teaching mode has not been able to meet the needs of students, nor meet the requirements of society. In order to solve this problem, a multi-mode oil painting education theory is proposed. The multi-mode teaching promotes the renewal of educational concept, and different painting languages can be used to show the artistic charm of oil painting. Multi mode teaching usually adopts the Soviet oil painting teaching mode, which has a realistic style and a more realistic and natural creative style. From a technical point of view, when color vision is enhanced, it will become part of the Impressionism. When the color sense is weak, it may be closer to the artistic conception of classical oil painting. This method combines the sketch chromaticity and modernism technology with the basic rules of landscape oil painting structure. However, because the color does not meet the realistic requirements of modernism, but its shape is very in line with the requirements of landscape painting.
