This is a free video tutorial designed especially for the web.  It is nowhere near the quality of the DVDs, which are lengthy and suitable for broadcast on television networks.  This tutorial is much smaller, quicker, and much less comprehensive.  However, artists worldwide have enjoyed using the tutorial and have obtained quality artworks - just as hoped!  Suitable for beginners and established painters.  

The painting you'll create - in your own hand and your own style (that's how the techniques work) - is pictured here, this one created by Robert, to give you an idea of your end result.

Always use professional quality oil paint, not only for longevity and the beauty of their response - because the techniques work best when used with the higher quality paint.  Poor quality oil paint doesn't respond so well.
