How to become a better painter!

As artists we’re never really satisfied with our work, are we?

Doing our best is part of what makes us human. We all want to be the best we can be.

We have this idea in our head of what we should be able to paint. Yet we never seem to get there. There’s a disconnect between what we can do and what we want to do.

We’re chasing the wrong goal. We’re pursuing an impossible objective. It’s like trying to reach the point where the railroad tracks come together.

We feel stuck. We end up painting the same old paintings over and over and over again. We feel at least we can get that right.

We drool, though, when we see an exquisite still life or a stunning seascape with pounding waves and sandy shores.

We want to paint better but just don’t know how.

We’ll bounce around from one “teacher” to the next. We’ll watch a lot of videos on YouTube.

They don’t seem to help, do they? We might pick up a ninja brush technique or two, but those videos aren’t intended to teach you to paint.

The videos are as one YouTube commenter wrote, “Another watch-me video.” The videos are someone showing you how well they can paint.

There really ought to be a better way to get better!

So how do you do it?

How do you learn to paint instead of watching another painting video?

To paint better you have to learn better.

To paint better you have to learn the principles of creating great art.

Now it doesn’t matter if you aspire to become a professional artist and sell your work or if you just want to enjoy a relaxing Sunday afternoon painting at your canvas.

You still need to learn what turns a painting into a work of art.

What happens if you don’t know these principles?

You’ll get bored and the passion you experienced when you first started painting will slowly die inside you.

Your confidence as an artist will fade and you’ll think that maybe you were right. Perhaps you don’t have what it takes to become an artist.

What most people do when trying to get better is take another workshop, buy another DVD, buy some art books or watch some more YouTube videos. But for most people, none of that works.

  • Most painters, even good ones, are not very good teachers.
  • Besides, workshops are a hassle and they never move faster than the slowest student. If that student is you someone else might be finishing your painting. That’s not really learning how to paint, is it?
  • Painting another pretty picture doesn't really teach you to paint.
  • Buying another DVD usually ends up on your bookshelf with all the others.
  • You can’t ask a DVD a question when things aren’t going quite right.
  • Art books are nice but they, pretty much, assume you can paint already.
  • YouTube videos aren’t much help because most of the “teachers” on YouTube are amateurs who know just a tiny bit more than you do.

And what happens if you just do nothing?

What happens if you just keep doing what you’ve been doing?

Your hallway closet fills with paintings you can’t give away, much less sell.

You end up painting the same old tired landscapes. You just don’t get any better in your art until you (gasp) just plain quit!

Alexander Art has a solution that works!

When I started painting I was overwhelmed because I didn’t know where to start. My first paintings were horrible.

I went through a couple of different “teachers” before I found Bill Alexander.

I stumbled for at least a year and almost gave up painting completely. I tried painting landscapes but they came out looking like this…

Then I found Bill Alexander and suddenly my paintings started looking like, well, paintings!

But I wasn’t satisfied. Now that I knew I could paint, I wanted to paint as well as I possibly could. I kept telling myself, “This isn’t rocket science.”

I found that I needed a plan — a structure to my learning. And…I needed to learn from a master artist who was also a master teacher.

Over the next two years my paintings began to look like this…

I realized I was learning not just how to paint pretty pictures, I was learning the principles of creating great art. I’ve never looked back.

I’m going to say something you might find uncomfortable but if you really want to become a better artist, if you really want to be confident at the canvas, you’re going to have to hear it.

Painting is not easy.

But…it’s not rocket science either.

Your Guide, Master Artist and Master Teacher Bill Alexander

With Master Artist and Master Teacher Bill Alexander as your guide, you’ll learn the important principles of creating great art. Bill painted for over three decades before he began to teach. He taught another three decades before he became a television celebrity. He taught millions of his fans how to paint on his Emmy award winning television show, “The Magic of Oil Painting.”

For over thirty years, Alexander Art has been helping folks just like you learn the principles of great art. We have helped people unleash their creative power and experience the joy and wonder of art. As we move into the twenty-first century we are ramping up our commitment to you, the artist, to provide you with the best training possible.

Let's take a look at a short clip from some of what you'll learn in this course.

The Plan

There is a simple three step process you need to learn that will help your painting get better every time you go to the canvas.

  1. Learn the principles by watching the videos,
  2. Practice the principles by painting along with the videos,
  3. Reinforce and solidify the principles by practicing on your own. (We'll help!)
