How To Solve Painting Problems

Solve These Important Painting Problems. Paint with confidence and see your paintings improve massively.

What Painting Problems? Every subject we choose to paint offers certain challenges or problems to solve. This course will look at common problems and how I go about solving them so that you can take your oil painting to new levels.

This course builds on my previous course, Learn to Paint With Impact, by looking at specific problems faced by painters. I look at various landscape problems such as countryside, street scenes, seascapes, beaches and skies.

How to plan, prepare and complete a landscape painting that will leave you more confident for the next painting. All the skills you will learn can be taken forward to build up your painting ability and increase your enjoyment of painting.
