By Nancy Reyner, Professional Fine Art Painter
This course is for you
To make a great painting you'll need more than just paint. Learn to fine tune each aspect of painting — transforming images into their full viewing potential — and you have mastery. Elevate your work from good to great. Get the results you want with more ease and speed. The Art of Painting Beyond Technique is an all-inclusive self-guided painting course. It includes thirteen videos along with a pdf version of Nancy's fully illustrated book Create Perfect Paintings. Follow along at your own pace using the course videos, book and supplemental materials. You will not find these ideas, resources and information anywhere else — art schools or any other online course. No need to change your painting style, subject matter or methods. This class doesn’t teach you to PAINT LIKE SOMEONE ELSE! Instead you become a smarter painter! Improve the way your paintings create a viewing movement, or eye choreography. Understand in a clear way how 2D images trick us into the illusion of 3D using contemporary and classic spatial concepts. Learn to enhance and extend your viewer’s experience looking at your art.
