Painting a Rooster

I’ll walk you through this painting, step by step.  There’s lots to learn in this painting.  Wood, straw, feathers, and lots more.   This is a 16″ x 20″ stretched canvas, but you could paint it on an 11″ x 14″ also.  The photo above shows this rooster in black and white but I’ll be teaching it with much more color.  I show you in the very beginning how to paint a white rooster, but I spend much more time showing you in living color how to paint this fun rooster.

Module11
Painting Tulips and Lilacs

This is one of my favorite paintings and you will learn a lot about, an impressionistic background, leaves, dimensional tulips and lilacs. I love the colors in this painting and the movement in it.  I’ll walk you through every step to create this beauty.

    Shopping List

    I can save you the cost of this course if you’ll download this shopping list and only purchase what’s on it.  Don’t be tempted by all the pretty paints and brushes.  Walk away from the art supply aisle!

    This is a comprehensive shopping list of what you NEED to get started.  Technically you could get started with three primary colors of paint, red, blue and yellow and white and one brush and a piece of poster paper, but I know you really want more than that and I want you to have enough to be successful, but not enough to compete with the national debt.

    Make sure you go through what you already own and see if it’s still good.  If your paint is five years old, toss it and start fresh.  Go through any brushes you have and compare to the ones I am suggesting.  Then only buy what you need to fill out your art kit.

    I’ve known some pretty serious guilt from purchasing too many brushes and then never, and I mean never using them.  No guilt for you.

If You Want To Start at the Beginning to Learn to Paint, This Course is For YOU!

If you've always known there is an artist inside of you, this course will help you get it out. If you stand in the art supply aisle and know you want to paint, but have no idea what you need, this course is definitely for you. If you look at art and think, "I know I could do that", this course is calling your name. If you want to paint but are afraid and don't know where to start, this is YOUR course.

I'm sure there's an artist inside, but I don't know where to begin.

I look at art supplies and I don't even know what to buy.

Now I have the time to paint but I don't know how to get started.

I wonder how long it will take me to learn the basics of painting.

30-Day Full Money Back Guarantee.  If you ain’t happy, I ain’t happy and I’ll gladly refund all your money, no questions asked.  (But remember, I can probably save you the price of the course just in telling you what supplies you need and don’t need).

Here are some common questions about our course!

What if I can't draw stick people?

You’re in luck!!! We’re not drawing stick people!  As you work your way through the course, you will learn how to use your brush and paint that will take a very rough sketch or no sketch at all into a finished painting.

How will taking this course save me money?

I know how it is to go into an art store and see all the paints and brushes and want everything in the store.  “Load it all up, Please!”.  I’m going to give you lists of exactly what to buy and why so you will not be spending more than you need to on supplies.

Can I really learn how to paint this way?

YES!  I have taught hundreds of students from as young as four up to 82 and I have never had someone not able to complete the painting we were doing.  And those students who have taken my art camps (which this course is modeled after) have improved every step of the way.

You benefit with this course because you can listen to something over and over if you need to in order to understand it.  You can read it, watch it, practice it over and over.

Don't Just Take My Word For It. Here's what some of my students have to say!

My abilities to paint were always less than satisfactory to instructors. Sharon Graves teaches differently. She never made me feel that my "talent" was less than others in the class. She encourages us in step by step painting. We all learn at different levels. Thank you Sharon for putting the love of painting back in my spirit. Sandy H.

I took a painting class from Sharon, and even though I was nervous and worried about my painting looking good, it turned out to be a wonderful experience. Sharon was patient, encouraging, knowledgeable, and made everything so easy. Sharon is a wonderful teacher who made my painting experience an unexpected joy.
