If you want to get video training, you can view, listen to and copy for your own oil paintingsIf you want to paint in the traditional way and want to re-learn oil painting starting from the beginning, and do it completely, yet simply, than this will interest you.
I am releasing my newest training program called Oil Painting Formula
This is a multi DVD set that will cover every step of oil painting from choosing, preparing and using your materials through the entire painting process.
In essence, it breaks down all the steps into a formula for you to follow.
However, something important to take note of is that even though I use the word formula in the title of this training program, this is not going to be mathematical, or scientific and boring.
After all painting and creating are fun. But, you will have a definite system to follow for every step of the way. And, demonstrated to you in full detail.
This is different than my previous written instruction like my Insiders Guide Home Study Course
Those manuals and video tutorials are great, and they have helped thousands of people, but this new training goes beyond teaching that I could ever put into written manuals.
This training course is mostly video and will be a multiple DVD collection.
Through this course, you will learn all the formulas you will need to make your oil paintings with the focus being on portraits and people.
If you prefer to paint landscapes, you may not want this training, however if you are a creative thinking person, it is very easy to simply adapt the formulas for your preferred subject matter.
Here Is What It Will Do For You
Oil Painting Formula Materials
1) Preparing your canvas
You will learn every step of preparing raw canvas. You will also learn how to use already pre-stretched canvas, but you will see deomstrations of a few simple things to do to the canvas so you can get the surface quality of the old masters.
2) Your palette
You will see how to properly prepare a palette as far as preparing it to paint with. You will see how I use my palettes
You will get the ultimate training in your colors from choosing your paint and color to learning how to make your own paint (much easier than you think). You will learn what colors you need, how to use them to mix any color you want and where in your paintings those colors will be used.
This is like a course by itself.
Need I discuss how important and confusing a topic this is
Youll watch me discuss all the major components that can be added to your mixed painting medium. Youll see how I demonstrate how different mediums will have different effects on your paint.
Youll learn a great exercise of creating your own reference canvas that you can always use to determine what medium to use.
5) Brushes / painting knifes
Ill go over brushes, which ones you need, which ones I use and why how to choose yours, use em, and clean em.
Oil Painting Formula – Process
I will go over the very simple ways to get your placements the way you want them
You will see a few different types of drawings that can be used, yet they are all part of the drawing stage of the oil painting formula
You will see various ways of making your underpainting. There is not just 1 way. Learn variations, all in a step by step manner but all part of the Underpainting stage of the oil painting formula
4) Veiling, glazes, halfpastes
This is where the color really begins to take off. Many people have such a hard time with this part. They get an underpainting done, but dont know what comes next.
How do you add your colors or overlayers over your dried underpainting Now, you will see it demonstrated for you.
5) Accents and more solid painting
This is where it can get really fun and your style comes out. This stage of the oil painting formula really starts making all the work you have done up to this point, all the layers play their own role in the painting.
6) Learn how to reapeat the last 3 stages over and over again if you like
Ever heard about the layers and layers of glazes and veilings the old masters used
This is all about that. How you can work on your painting over and over again
7) Learn when to paint those little parts of your paintings that people tend to look at first.
Sometimes you have to do some final glazes to parts of your painting to get it just the way you want it. Rembrandt used to do this a lot. Youll see that demonstrated here.
Just So you Know…
You will learn all the formulas mentioned above in a way that makes everything easy to understand and fun as well.
You will see a few complete paintings that use slight variations of the overall formula. This will tie the “process” together.
You will want to refer to this training program over and over again.
I hope you have seen samples of my teaching style in the free videos you probably have watched.
Let me just say that using the formulas of the old masters does not mean that you have to paint, dark, old paintings of subject matter you cant relate to.
You are just learning the process, the system, the formula.
Take these formulas and put them to work for you with your own paintings, in your own style.<
