Painting has been one of my life's greatest sustaining pleasures. It has enlarged my world. My goal here is to share that pleasure with you and to see painting bring out the world of creativity within you!

 

Oil paints have been most artists' first choice for hundreds of years, with good reason. The colors are gorgeous, you can do anything with them and they last forever. Oil paint is slow drying so you can remove what you donít like while itís wet or you can paint over it when itís dry. Oil paint is easy to use once you learn the basics. Iíve taught beginners to masters and Iíve learned that everything builds on just a few basic concepts that I will show you here.

 

This web site is set up to take you step by step to a finished painting.

  • First learn about the materials you will need to get started.
  • Next learn a little basic information in easy steps.
  • Finally use these concepts as you paint the four exercises with me on your own canvases.
  • You will then have the skills to paint anything you can see or imagine.
