Course overview
Here we will begin getting into the materials you will use to produce your paintings. This includes the paint itself and the tools used to apply it to the painting surface.

You’ll get lessons on brushes and painting knives. The paint itself and we’ll begin to get into how to mix the colors you will need to produce different variations of a color, from dark to light.

You’ll also get a demonstration of making your own paint which is not as hard as it sounds. There are many benefits to making your own paint including knowing exactly what oil you are adding to it so you will know it’s drying time, you’ll be able to control the consistency, glossiness, and it just makes for better paint. Sort of like home made food compared to fast food.

Course reviews

I am amazed!! I am 58 years old and have never written a testimonial, until now. I have dabbled in art for about 40+ years and have collected many volumes on how to oil paint. 90% are of the “how to” variety. I have become increasingly dissatisfied with the directions that I am getting and thus becoming very suspicious. I ordered your information. I was enthralled!! For the first time someone was telling me WHY, not giving me their opinion! I am going to have a huge yard sale this spring and get rid of several thousand dollars of “useless” art books! Thank you and keep up the terrific work. You will never know how many questions you answered for me.”

“Your information is like a passenger reading it to land a plane! All the pilots secrets are in there. it brings back those college days, where you we’re suppose to KNOW instinctively how to master the different medium. Boy, do you hit home.”
