How do I begin? How to oil paint ? Am I doing it correctly?

Oh, those questions I’m sure you have asked yourself in the past or are still asking yourself today. I’m Ethan Semmel and I started out painting like those painters you see on public television. The people who paint a landscape in 27 minutes or so. The problem was, when I went to the museums, I saw the greatest painters in history. Renoir, Rembrandt, Titian, Raphael, Monet.

How did they paint the fantastic pictures they did?

Their paintings made mine look, frankly, silly. I could only paint a landscape. And, my landscapes looked like the cheesy kind selling for $17 in a shopping mall, not like their fantastic paintings. I was frustrated. “How do I get the answers to my questions? How can I learn to paint the way I really want to?” You can go through the years of frustration at art schools, like I did, to search for the answers. But, you’ll never get them there. I knew other people like yourself were sick and tired of that frustration that came with doing something you love. I paint because I love it, not because I want to be frustrated.

I always knew there was a much better way for others to learn to oil paint. People like yourself who are genuinely interested in learning oilpainting techniques or improving need to get the help you want and need. And believe it or not, there is much better help available for you to learn right in your home rather than in some crowded class that might cost $2000 and may meet at times that are inconvenient for you. I decided to turn my years of experiences with the frustration of learning to oil paint into something positive that will benefit beginning and intermediate oil painters like you.

When you don’t get the results you want, many times you blame this on your lack of talent, but guess what?… If You Get The Proper, Direct, instruction which is Easy To Understand…You Paint Better, Period
