LEARN TO PAINT HOME

I’m Darrell Crow, and …

“YES! You Can Learn To Paint!”

We offer Video Art Lessons and books that will teach anyone (Yes, that means you.) how to paint in oils, acrylics, or Water-Mixable Oils. Our lessons assume the student has no talent and knows absolutely nothing about art. We teach the basic techniques of painting in clear, concise, step-by-step language so that anyone who has a desire can learn to paint, even if they’ve never so much as held a paint brush before. If you can write your name, you have all the talent you need to learn to paint.

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.”

I’ve carefully put together a fantastic set of art instructional videos that are guaranteed to teach you how to paint beautiful landscapes and seascapes.

So if you’ve ever thought about painting, but didn’t know how, thought you had to be born with talent, or just wanted to learn the fundamentals of the basic techniques of painting, this website is for you.

I know the biggest question you have is whether or not “YOU” can actually learn to paint and paint well.

Yes, and I tell you why in this short video …

We Offer The Basic Techniques of Painting

This is a comprehensive suite of two-hour long art video lessons that cover the fundamentals of painting in step-by-step language so that anyone can easily follow along.  This suite of art instructional videos contains the following 2-hour modules:

  7. Rocks & Boulders
  8. Cabins and Buildings

So  for each media type we’ve provided a two hour basic instructional video lesson.  This means there are 27 2-hour long videos comprising our base product.

  • There are 9 two-hour videos for learning the fundamentals of oil painting.

Why Did I put together over 300 videos into this single product?  I have a fundamental belief that people learn to paint their own paintings and masterpieces.  In order to do this we begin with the fundamentals, learning the basic techniques, than we want to focus on a couple of types of paintings like landscapes or animals or flowers, and we’re constantly practicing and learning more advance techniques like color mixing and painting from photos.  It’s like a cycle that all beginning artists travel when learning.  Darrell explains the Five Point Artist Cycle he has observed.

 

One last word!

I have a lot of students that instead of focusing on why they can’t paint, just set aside their fears for a few hours and followed instructions.  Low and behold, they found out they could paint.  That’s why I know you can paint.  I’ve seen it for over 30 years with hundreds of thousands of students.

As you watch the video below, I’m sure you’ll conclude that if Debbie can paint, anybody can learn to paint.  Not every one has near her challenges to learn.

Wasn’t Debbie’s story fantastic!  I have to admit, I was shocked when she showed me her paintings.  That’s why I just had to share her story with you.  If Debbie can learn to paint (and she did), so can you!

By now you’re saying, OK.

I can learn to paint.

You have great video art lessons that will absolutely, positively teach me to paint.

What’s the cost….

The good news is we’ve bundled all of the videos we’ve covered above into a single, low, low, even low cost than you can possibly imagine.

Let’s just review what this one super low cost will get you ….

I have a lot of plans for new videos, so I will be adding to our video library all of the time.

Let me share another testimony a student recently sent to us.

Darrell, I enrolled in your on-line Paint Club (school) over a year ago but did not view the lessons that much until recently. When I did, I could not believe my good fortune. I have been painting for about 5 years using various artist’s DVDs and learned a lot but I could not duplicate what I was watching to my satisfaction. The reason for that is that the “teaching” part of the DVDs was so minimal that I couldn’t progress. What I appreciated so much in your techniques videos is that you not only teach but you show every detail that is needed to learn. Just the fact that you show your palette up close so I can learn all the ways to mix paint and most importantly, how to load the brushes. You not only teach all of it but you tell us why it matters. I just wanted you to know how much I love these lessons. I can’t find enough time in the day to view more. This is the very best investment I have ever made on my road to becoming a good painter. Thank you so much. By the way, I am 76 so that proves you are never too old to learn. , USA

Carole D.

I know the big question now is how much.  But just before we get to that, let me just say the price is so low, it will blow you away……

Just like these videos Students have sent me ….

My Students Tell My Story Better Than I Ever Can!


“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.


 

YOUR SUPPORT IS OUTSTANDING!
“I think I had more trouble getting the canvas prepared than painting. It was so much fun 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.”

Sherry D., California, USA


FROM AROUND THE WORLD COME PRAISES FOR THE BASIC TECHNIQUES OF PAINTING…
FROM THE USA …
Darrell, As I have told you before I paint with acrylics; I decided to watch your 5 lessons on painting flowers. I have watched other instructor’s free lessons and let me tell you. None of them have had the effect you have. The way you teach the painting of flowers is fantastic. You are a genius with a brush in your hand. I have to make some time to practice what you taught. I am 75 years old and did not pick up a color pencil until I was 62, five years after that I pick up a brush to paint acrylics. Although I paint, I always dreamt of finding a way to give my paintings that professional touch. Well Darrell I believe that if I practice what I have seen in your lessons, then I found that touch. Thank you so much. L.. Barrios, 2014


Darrell, I ordered your Basic Techniques of Painting 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. Helen W.


FROM IRELAND ….

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.

Geraldine


Dear Darrell, I just wanted to thank you once again for the fantastic art course! You worked SO HARD putting it all together and I, for one, was very impressed. I continue to support you and mention you in multiple blogs and FB pages that I’m enrolled in… spreading your good grace as best I can. It was wonderful meeting you and spending time with you and like-minded people. When you’re ready to venture to Ireland again, let me know… it would be my pleasure to be your Irish Connection! With warm regards, Nancy B. Cork County.


FROM AUSTRALIA …
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


 

FROM SCOTLAND
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,
