This Is the Fastest and Easiest Way to Master the Basics of Oil Painting and Start Creating Your Own Stunning Compositions Right Now …

Even If You’ve Never Held a Paintbrush in Your Life! 

We hear it a lot…
“If only I could paint like that.”
“I’ve got no talent.”
Perhaps you or someone you know wants to learn to create beautiful oil paintings but feels as though they did not get “the gift of painting.”

Want to know a well kept secret?

Almost anyone can learn to paint.

Yes, you heard me right. Even if you can’t draw a straight line.

You see, almost anyone can become a pretty good painter. It’s not about talent alone. It’s about learning a process.

If you can learn to cook, you can learn to paint.
If you can learn to type, you can learn to paint.

Just like cooking: Someone teaches you the simple processes... Then you practice a lot till you get better and better at it.

Is talent required?

Maybe way down the road, but tens of thousands of people who did not think they had talent have discovered how to paint by learning the step-by-step process.
If you would like to learn how to discover the basics of oil painting in just a few short hours, then this will be the most exciting message you’ve ever read.

Laurel Daniels Oil Painting For Beginners

If you have never picked up a brush before, this is the video for you. There is a wealth of information here for the beginner. Intermediate painters will benefit as well. Ms. Daniels is an excellent teacher, explains things in a complete and easy to understand manner. The section on color mixing alone is well worth the price. I have watched the video three times already, the first to just watch and see what was included, the second time with pen and paper to take notes, and the third time to paint along with her. The painting she guides you through is fun to do, and I was very happy with the end result I achieved. Highly recommended for both beginners and intermediate level artists.
