Course overview
In this course you'll watch as we start the preparation paint layers. Yes, the layering process begins even before we actually paint the picture.
We will apply our ground which is the base layer of paint. On top of this base layer is where you will paint your canvas.
I'll also demonstrate how to use store bought canvases that already have a base layer on them because those layers are usually not very good and do not help you paint your picture. In fact they may be a leading cause of some of your frustration when you paint your picture.

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.”
