I created the Basic Techniques because it didn’t exist and I want you to have the best possible art instructions in your quest to learn to oil paint.
Most importantly, I want you to believe in yourself that you can paint. The Basic Techniques of Painting is a collection of over 350 on-line 2-hour long video art lessons in oil painting, acrylic painting and water mixable painting that teach you the fundamentals of painting landscapes, seascapes, tall ships, flowers, people, pop art, pet portraits and wildlife. And there’s over 150 painting scenes where we shown you how paint complete masterpieces from the bare canvas to the final brush. All in step-by-step, concise instructions that easy to follow. This series of over 350 video art lessons is A LIFETIME OF LEARNING. From the very first video in this series, your experience will totally transform your concept as well as your belief in you. You will walk away with absolute faith that “Yes, you can paint.” My first art instructor, Jessie Martin’s words of encouragement have become the inspiration behind all of my video art lessons and the drive to constantly help every student to mentally understand the concept behind each technique taught in my art instruction video series. If you have a “want to” no matter how much you “disbelieve,” you will 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 in their forty something now, admire my paintings and even have them hanging on their walls.
What will your family and friends say when you show them your masterpieces? Paintings that you’ve done yourself?”
