Art That Anyone Can Do!

Allow me to introduce you to my Beginning Art Student School that focuses on the Beginning Student that hasn’t even so much as picked up a paint brush before. So many, many people have told me they would love to paint, but …. they don’t have any talent or art experience.

Let me tell you this… If you can sign your name, I can teach you to paint. You have all of the talent and skills you will ever need to learn to paint beautiful, beautiful, beautiful masterpieces.

If you’ve ever had the slightest bit of desire to learn to paint in oils, or acrylics, or water soluble oils, than this might be the most important website you’ve visited all day….

Here’s why:

“You will learn how to paint.”

Darrell draws from his over 20 years experience in teaching brand new beginning students in over 3,000 workshops how to oil paint. Darrell has taken his experience, techniques and tips and condensed them into 20 hours of video lessons in this fundamental oil painting series that will absolutely, positively teach you to oil paint, or your money back.

Darrell backs up his unmatched guarantee with personalized help via email, telephone, newsletters, web videos and on-line student art painting forums on Yahoo and Facebook.

Now, I know you’re probably skeptical.

That’s normal and healthy.

Let me give you three good reasons why we can back up what we claim:


Three Reasons To Believe What I Say

Reason one: Darrell assumes you know absolutely nothing about painting and starts out with the basics, the supplies you’ll need, how to set up your painting area, how to clean brushes and continues all the way through the different core elements of landscape painting (skies, clouds, mountains, waterfalls, lakes, rivers, seascapes, trees, grass, bushes, rocks, and buildings) until you’re painting entire landscapes and seascapes.

Reason two: Darrell is the man that college art professors and high school art instructors go to when they want to build their skills in painting. The vast majority of Darrell’s students, though, are beginners like you who simply have a desire to learn to paint.

Reason three: Darrell has been teaching ‘Beginners’ for over 20 years with an iron-clad money-back guarantee. Today, over 1,600,000 on-line beginning students have signed up to watch and learn Darrell’s Basic Techniques of Oil Painting and learned how to

Reason four: Let’s throw in another solid reason. After you’ve learned the Basic Techniques of Painting, most students want to paint something else, Subject matters like flowers, seascapes, people, pop-art, tall ships, wildlife, pets, color mixing, and more. Well, these students do not have to invest another penny to learn these fundamental and basic techniques. It’s all included in Darrell’s Beginners Art School………without any further tuition. That’s why we call it a lifetime membership. And if Darrell doesn’t have what you want to learn, simply ask him if a new course can be added to the school’s curriculum.

Here is a summary of the benefits you receive

  • No Talent or Experience Required

    Darrell quickly dispels the fable that in order to paint one must have talent. You have enough talent to paint if you can sign your name. In fact, Darrell believes that talent is nothing more than technique practiced over and over. Darrell therefore starts with the fundamentals of oil painting, the supplies, how to use them and leads you by the hand, step-by-step until you’re painting your own landscapes. Not only will you be surprised by your paintings, but friends and family members will insist you’ve been painting for years and hiding your talents.

  • Easy to Understand, Step-by-Step Instructions

    Darrell speaks your language. No high tech art talk. In everyday language Darrell explains how to mix all of the colors, how to load your brush, why you’re using that brush and how to stroke the paint onto the canvas. Everything is explained. You’ll know what to do. How to do it and why.

  • Comprehensive Instructions

    Darrell has broken landscapes and seascapes down into 9 core learning blocks. For example, Mountains is one core learning block. The student is given over 2 hours of instructions in how to paint all kinds of mountains in different seasons and with different brushes. The Basic Techniques of Oil Painting Series of videos contains over 20 hours of comprehensive instruction.

  • Innovative close-ups, repeats & slow-motion

    Our filming studios are fully equipped with the latest in sound, video and editing and we make liberal use of close-ups, repeating critical instructions and mixing in slow-motion so that the student is afforded every opportunity to learn. As one of our students said, “It’s impossible not to learn.”

  • Instructions for both left-handed and right-handed beginning students

    Darrell forced himself to paint left handed so that he could show left-handed beginning students how to use the palette knife and brushes. Sometimes, its just too confusing for a left-handed student to transfer a right handed person’s instruction to themselves. Darrell has ample illustrations in both left-handed and right-handed demonstrations throughout the series.

  • No More Watching The Back Of The Hand

    One of the cardinal rules of design for this series was to stop filming immediately when only the back of the hand was shown. It’s so frustrating to only see the instructor’s hand and not the brush and how its being worked on the canvas. It makes learning impossible. Darrell insisted upon multiple cameras and different angles to ensure the student can always see the action.

  • Darrell Makes Himself Personally Available To You.

    You’re not just given a set of DVDs and sent off into the wild blue yonder, “Happy Painting.” Darrell not only wants you to learn to paint, but is personally committed to your success. The DVDs are only the beginning. Darrell publishes a Newsletter with additional help articles, help videos and special offers. Over 1,000 articles are published to further your education and answer questions. There’s also a help desk managed by Darrell where you can ask specific questions and a special forum for Darrell’s beginning students have been set up on Yahoo Groups.

  • Darrell’s Techniques Are Transferable To Acrylics

    Darrell’s oil painting techniques are transferable to acrylics. We receive countless emails and letters from acrylic artists who tell us how easily they’ve transferred Darrell’s oil painting techniques to Acrylics. To further help, Darrell has put together an entire series of the Basic Techniques of Acrylic Painting and its included in Darrell’s Beginner Art School.

  • Darrell’s Techniques Are Transferable To Water Miscible Oils

    Live in an apartment or with someone that has breathing difficulties? The fumes of traditional oils and solvents are often uncomfortable for those with asthma, breathing difficulties and those living in small quarters or poorly ventilated areas. Water Miscible Oils could well be the answer. Darrell has put together an entire series of video lessons called: The Basic Techniques to Water Miscible oils. And yes, this entire series is included in Darrell’s Beginners Art School.

Now, you’re probably wondering how and why we can do all those things.

Let me explain.

Darrell never tires of telling the story of how he discovered oil painting. In his own words..

“Back in 1991, I was you. I knew without a doubt, I had no artistic abilities whatsoever.

Nothing, nada, zilch. I even sweated drawing stick people.

I know that sounds like I’m over stating the facts, but the truth is I knew nothing about art. I knew what I couldn’t do. So I didn’t even try what I knew I couldn’t do.

The man who broke through my wall of disbelief is Jessie Martin, an artist in E. Freetown, MA. At a flea market, Jessie, personally spent 45 minutes talking me into just TRYING. I simply did not believe in myself. I knew that I couldn’t paint. I was rock solid in my disbelief. I had no faith in me.

Oh, do I remember my disbelief. I’d seen that fuzzy headed guy on TV now and then. Although I knew he was talented, I didn’t believe him either when he said he could teach me to paint. One had to be born with talent to paint. Everyone knows that.

But Jessie said something that day to me I’ve never forgotten. His words got through my thick-headed engineering mind.

First thing he said was signing one’s name is an art form. We spend more time in school teaching people how to write than how to paint. And anybody with enough practice can sign their name. And with practice, I could paint.

Well, I had no trouble signing my name. It wasn’t pretty, but it was unique and for most of my life I was able to sign my name anytime. The school teachers had taught me the fundamentals of the writing technique, I had practiced, and practiced until the art of signing my name was second nature.

The second thing Jessie said that really hit me like a ton of bricks was that learning the fundamentals of oil painting was simply learning the techniques.

He could teach me the techniques and all I had to do was simply practice, practice, practice. I could practice anything if “I understood mentally what I was doing”. Jessie made it clear he would help me to understand mentally the concept of each technique.

It’s all history now, but let me tell you…..I sat down with Jessie, took a class with a lot of disbelief. But I walked away differently from that lesson. The difference, was that now I truly knew “I could paint”.


I now had tons of faith in me. With enough practice, I could turn technique into talent.

Today, I’m so amazed by all the people who tell me how talented I am.

I owe it all to Jessie’s comment, “Darrell, anyone can paint, even you. Learn the techniques. Practice them until their second nature and never quit practicing. When the techniques become second nature, than you’ll not believe how the world opens up to you and you literally will want to paint everything you see. You’ll look at the world with different eyes. You’ll be an artist.”

Jessie was right.

I would have given anything back then to have a comprehensive video library as The Basic Techniques of Painting series in which to learn painting. And I searched everywhere.

I created the Basic Techniques because it didn’t exist and I want you to have the best possible instructions in your quest to learn to oil paint.

Most importantly, I want you to believe in yourself that you can paint.

From the very first video lesson in The Basic Techniques of Painting, your experience will totally transform your concept, your belief in you. You will walk away with absolute faith that “Yes, you can oil paint.”

Jessie’s words have become the inspiration behind all of my lessons and the drive to constantly help everyone to mentally understand the concept behind each technique taught in my Basic Techniques Series. If you have a “want to” no matter how much you “disbelieve,” you can learn to oil paint.

I can’t believe how my wife proudly boasts about my work and actively pushes my paintings to people she meets. My children, who are now well in their Thirty Something, admire my paintings and even have them hanging on their own walls.

Grandchildren love to come over to “Pop-Pops” house to paint.

I have never experienced the thrill or joy in creating anything like I do when I pick up a paint brush. I want everyone to experience this grand and glorious feeling. You can do this, just as easily as I did.

What will your family and friends say when you show them your masterpieces? Paintings that you’ve done yourself?”

Don’t take my word for it. Listen to what our customers say.

“My very first painting is so incredibly good that it is frame-able quality! I am astounded …”

Darrell. First, I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart! My very first painting is so incredibly good that it is frame-able quality! I am astounded, and to say that I am pleased would be the biggest understatement of the years! I stare at this painting and in awe that it came from my very own hands.

I used to watch the Bob Ross TV show and think that I would do that when I am ‘old’ and a grandmother. By then I thought I would have time and money to devote to painting. Well, at the ‘old’ age of 52 with my first granddaughter, my long ago dream came true. My friends can’t believe that this is my very first oil painting. Once again, thank you so much for sharing your knowledge with me via DVD instructions. I am more grateful than I can put into words.

— Wyletta, Now an Artist!

“It’s Impossible Not To Learn…”

“I received my free video lessons, Water, and was more surprised than I expected to be. All the testimonials said the DVD was wonderful and easy to use. That can mean many things to different people, but very little to me. What the testimonials didn’t say was that you teach ‘one stroke’ at a time, with more explanation than stroke. This technique with the picture quality, the camera position and zoom not only make it possible to learn, but makes it impossible not to learn.”

Phyllis Scholts

“If it wasn’t for you, I wouldn’t be painting today….all I ever wanted to do was to draw and paint.”

“Hi Darrell. I want to thank you very much for giving me this opportunity to pursue my lifelong dream. If it wasn’t for you I wouldn’t be painting today. I was made to believe since I was very little that all the talent in the family (I come from a family of many artists) went to my aunt and her children and that I had none (despite the fact that since I can remember, all I ever wanted to do was to draw and paint).

It took many years of therapy and “YOU” to overcome this and at least try. You see, I wanted this so much that I was afraid to even try because if I did try and couldn’t do it, I would have proof that my mother was right after all, and I didn’t have any talent. So I just spent my whole life dreaming of art but not having the courage to try. I don’t have enough words to express my gratitude to you and I’m soooooo lucky to have found your studio. Million thanks……”

— Francine O.



“I think I had more trouble getting the canvas prepared than painting. It was so much fund to do this….I am truly amazed at how easy you made this, and you were not even here in the room with me, yet were able to help me step by step to create this painting by supplying me with such simplified and easy to follow instruction and person to person support.

I was truly amazed when I answered my phone today and it was you ready to help. I do not think that even if I was in a room with an instructor, I would have had the same attention or support I received from you. Thank You.”

Darrell, I ordered your complete set of DVDs and have been thoroughly enjoying learning from them. I have painted one picture every day for the past month, sometimes the same one again to improve it. I am really getting much better every day and just wanted you to know that I think it is wonderful that you are offering these instructions to help us “wannabe’s’

I retired in July and have wanted to learn to paint all my life, never having time or money to try it before. Needless to say that I am having the time of my life learning now. Thanks again, also, for the personal attention you have given via emails to help me with decisions and questions.h3>Helen W.


i have just finished a 3 day workshop with Darrell here in Ireland and i so enjoyed the whole 3 days, day one and three i was able to implement all the things i had learned from darrell’s dvds and yes i did all the noises and the sayings ie” up in the air” ect. i was so impressed with the end results, but i have to say that day two was a real challenge to me as we did a wild life and i had never tried this before. and oh boy was i surprised i never though that a lion could be so easey to paint. thank you Darrell … You were just the same in person as you were on your dvd’s. a pleasure to meet you and an even bigger pleasure to have painted with you. kind regards.



Nothing Remotely Compares To The Quality Of Your Teaching!!!

I can oil paint. You were right again. What a wonderful teacher you are Darrell. There is nothing on the market down under that can be remotely compared to the quality of your most detailed and practical mode of teaching. Thank you Darrell.

Kindest Regards, J Wallace Australia


Hi Darrell, My name is Andy. I’m 52 years old; i live in a beautiful part of Scotland in Argylll. as i look out my window i can see mountains and the sea. As a youngster i dabbled with painting mostly water colours; it never amounted to much. As i have the luxury of such beautiful scenery from my window i have often thought how great it would be if i had the skill to oil paint them; i never thought for one minute that after watching your DVDs i could actually do it myself.

Well i am doing it! and quite well at that! following your style and technique i am turning out works of art [well my family thinks so] i get a real kick out of it as well. Thanks,


I Just Need 48 Hours a Day To Take It All In!

Many thanks for the very quick supply of the basic oil painting discs which arrived safely in the UK Weds. There is so much useful information to gleam. I just need 48 hours in a day to take it all in! Thanks for putting me on the road to many happy hours painting.

Warning: Do NOT buy any Learn To Oil Paint DVDs unless they meets the following 6 criteria

There is a lot of confusion surrounding our field. I want to give you 6 criteria or elements you absolutely, positively must have in any solution you obtain:

Does your potential instructor produce the types of paintings that you’d like to paint? That you would be proud to say you painted? Does your instructor’s video lessons or DVDs cover the basics, the fundamentals of painting? Does your potential instructor’s video lessons cover all of the steps of a technique or a painting? Or do they skip sections and move on to a new section leaving you lost? How will your instructor help you learn from their video lessons or DVD when you’re lost, or have questions or need more explanation? How will they interact personally with you? Do you understand your instructor in his/her video lessons or DVDs? Are the topics clearly presented and the video/sound enhancing the learning process? Will your Instructor review your painting lessons and tell you what you’ve done well and what you can do to improve?

You get at least 10 times your money’s worth!

The Basic Techniques of Oil Painting videos are so jam packed with technique after technique that just 30 minutes of instruction is equivalent to one of Darrell’s full day 5-6 hours workshops. Thus each video lesson would be equivalent to what you would learn in four or five of Darrell’s workshops.

And lots of Darrell’s students write in to say that they have four-year college degrees in art, but learned more about how to paint from a single video lesson than their entire four years in college.

Darrell charges an average of $65.00 a student per workshop. Thus the Basic Techniques of Painting series of videos represents an equivalent of 45 workshops or $2,925 in workshop tuition.

But you will pay far, far less than that for this Series of Basic art instruction videos.. And…. you will not have to spend 9 weeks sitting in seminars either.

You can acquire Darrell’s Basic Techniques of Oil Painting videos with a lifetime membership to his online Beginning Art Student school for just $19.95 a month for 12 months (Total of $239.40).

Darrell has been selling his painting DVDs separately for $19.95.

That’s 9 Basic Techniques DVDs priced at $ 179.95

And we include 3 Painting Projects DVDs valued at $ 74.85

Therefore we have sold tens of thousands of Basic Techniques of Oil Painting DVD sets of 12 DVDs valued at $264.85

But you will pay far, far less than that for lifetime access to the Basic Techniques of Painting.

Let’s just take a moment and review what you will receive when you order the Basic Techniques of Oil Painting.

In summary, here’s what you get:
  • Over 20 hours of comprehensive, step-by-step video instructions for beginners on the fundamentals, the Basic Techniques of Oil Painting.

  • (3) Over 350 video lessons, tips, and reviews, and special painting projects for you to paint and re-enforce everything you’ve learned from the Basic Techniques. Most of these video lessons are 2+ hours each and include …..

Clearly the best value resides in Club Membership.

But the real answer is what makes best sense for you? Are you more comfortable learning from DVDs, or is an on-line classroom environment best for you?

Whichever way you choose, we’re there to help you. All of our resources, attention and effort will be to help you not only learn the basic techniques of oil painting, but to become an accomplished artist.

I’ve shared with you my experiences, you’ve seen demos of my painting style and I’ve shared with you everything that’s included in this series of art instructions. You’ve seen what my students say and I’ve shown you their paintings. You’ve had an opportunity to ‘test drive’ one of our full-length, 2-hour art lesson DVD, The Basic Techniques of Oil Painting: Water.

But there’s one last thing I’d like to share with you.
