Through easy-to-follow techniques, tips and step-by-step demonstrations, Mark and Mary Willenbrink provide guidance and encouragement for learning how to paint with oils, even if you’ve never picked up a brush. Mark starts with a review of materials (he uses water-soluble oils), then demonstrates basic techniques for holding a brush, making different kinds of strokes, how to work with a palette and more. From here he takes you step by step through two complete paintings, a still life with pears which shows not only how to paint the pears, but how to setup a still life, and a landscape scene painted from a photograph. Familiar subjects, simple compositions and a realistic style will give you the confidence and skills you need to create finished oil paintings. (Please note: this video is included on DVD in Mark's book by the same name.)
