One of the topics we discuss in oil painting DVD – people learn to paint backwards

One of the topics we discuss in oil painting DVD is that most people learn to paint backwards.  They are so busy focusing on the model and then maybe occasionally they will look at reference material (example: photos of famous painting…or just photos of works you love)to see how it is.  No, the best way to learn painting, and to learn oil painting fast and good is to focus on the reference material and then on the model.  And then as you get better at developing a style you can focus more, and more, and more on the model.  That’s why learning to paint paintings and copying paintings, which has been done for generations, and generations, has been such a wonderful learning tool and it is something that was lost when the impressionists came along and everyone rejected the teachings of the old masters. Focus on making a great painting not getting you portrait to look like the model…the drawing skills will come just be patient. Otherwise you will learn how to draw and get that perfect likeness and THEN you will still need to learn to paint. More on this later…and check out my oil painting DVDs
