READ DESCRIPTION BEFORE PURCHASING
(The last sentence is important- read through!) Upon purchasing this selection YOU WILL BE SENT AN EMAIL WITH A DOWNLOADABLE PHOTO THAT CONTAINS A WEB ADDRESS WRITTEN ON IT IN GREY WRITING. (It’s not a clickable link since it’s a photo!) You must manually type the address you see into your web browser. (PLEASE NOTE: this is not the receipt email. You may receive a confirmation of purchase email saying here’s a link that’s valid for 30 days- ignore that! You’re link is permanently available and does not expire, but to get there you need to open the correct email with the photo attachment- so check junk mail if you’ve not received it, since junk mail does get deleted after X amount of days.) I WILL NOT RESEND LINKS! So please follow the instructions.
Once you type the provided web address into your browser, it will take you to a backdoor to my site with a breakdown of all things oil painting. It will take you to a page with categories that are aimed to help a range of artists from beginners, to more experienced artists just looking to take their art up a notch. This online information package will give you access to my personal info on:-SUPPLIES (understanding the différent types, how they are used and what I use)-THE 3 RULES TO OIL PAINTING (a breakdown of what the rules are, how to abide by them, and how to break them)-COLOUR (understanding colour, how to see it, how to mix it, how to apply it. Understanding skin tones.)-OIL DRY BRUSH (explaining what it is, the pros and cons to this technique and how to use it)-TECHNIQUES (a guideline of various techniques and how and when to use them)-GLAZING (understanding what glazing is and how to do it)-UNDERPAINTING (a list of the different ways to approach an underpainting and the pros and cons to each)-LEVEL UP (a collection of random tidbits to ramp up your art game and-HOW TO OVERCOME ARTIST BLOCK -and there is even a HOMEWORK tab (a list of exercises to do to practice what’s been discussed to grow your skills- best for beginners new to oil painting). I’m constantly updating the threads and adding in new content. If you purchase this information package, and find you have questions not answered in any of the tabs, feel free to send me a message with what you’d like included.
IF YOU'RE ON INSTAGRAM, SEND ME A DIRECT MESSAGE WITH YOUR ORDER NUMBER SO I CAN ADD YOU TO A CLOSED GROUP SO YOU CAN WATCH HIGHLIGHTS OF ME WORKING IN REAL TIME, SHARING MY PROCESS, TIPS, AND ANSWER QUESTIONS YOU MAY HAVE. Please send the message in instagram so I can copy your IG handle and paste it into the group, as I may not see an email.
This is not your typical "how to paint" dvd or art course. This was created for me to provide answers to commonly asked questions in a down-to-earth way, that I can do on my time between painting, and have it set up in a way that you can go over the content in chunks at your leisure. The most beneficial part to this will be in watching the instagram stories as I work on a piece and take you through it step by step, and if I encounter a problem along the way, you get to see how I troubleshoot and address issues as I go. It also provides an easy platform for us to have some back and forth if you have questions. I will keep the stories highlihted to my feed in case you miss some since they disappear after 24hours. Just go to my bio and click "Lessons" and you can catch up on what you missed.
Please note I am not a teacher. I'm a full time exhibiting artist. I do not have experience in videography or film making, and so this is going to be a super raw appraoch to learning what I have to offer.
That being said, I hope you enjoy and can take away some valuble info from this.
