The Secret to Your Painting’s Success

How Making a Great Start to Your Painting Ensures Successful Completion

Created by Malcolm Dewey - Professional Artist


Students: 15487, Price: Free

Do you find that your paintings seldom finish off looking good? Or do you abandon your painting halfway because nothing is looking right? Scraping back the paint in frustration only to abandon the painting is annoying. Not to mention a waste of time and money.

The solution in many cases is what you do even before you begin painting. It is all about the preparation and start where the real outcome is usually determined.

Any professional will tell you that there are a thousand ways to paint your picture and ruin it too. But most agree that getting the painting off to a great start is critical Step One

That is why I decided to create this short course with a focus on the start. This course is based on part of my Learn to Impact Master Course. The latter has much more detail should you want to take your learning to the next level.

The Secret to Your Painting Success will give you much information and practical tips that you can try out now with your next painting. Make that step up in your painting before moving onto more complicated techniques.

You will need the following materials:

  1. The primary colors and white (oils or acrylics)
  2. A canvas or painting panel
  3. Brushes - #6 bristle
  4. Medium or white spirits
  5. Paper towel
  6. Pencil and A5 sketchbook
  7. Black marker pen (thick wedge shaped tip)

I look forward to meeting you on the course!

Abstract Painting - Create Your First Abstract Painting, Step-by-Step

Created by Josue Andrade - Artist

Hello, my name is Josué Andrade García and I am an independent artist from Oaxaca, Mexico.

I am passionate about expressing my way of seeing life through photography, music, and painting. I use paint to capture the way I see and experience nature, and my environment, on a canvas.

I think that art can help find the peace and creativity that each of us carries within, so my intention is not to impose a method, but to give my students the tools to awake the artist within them.

The Covid-19 quarantine, which I've lived in my hometown in Oaxaca, Mexico, served as an inspiration to create this course. I hope that my students enjoy the course as much as I enjoyed creating it and that through painting, music, and photography, they continue trying new things and awaking their creativity.
