Welcome to Painting Crafts

Books/DVDs

Painting Instruction used to mean apprenticing yourself to an artist and becoming their virtual slave for 7 years until you had learned the trade. It is much easier these days with DVD's, Videos, Books, Painting packets and Paint-by-Number. If you just want to get the feel of putting a brush to canvas we have many paint-by-number sets to choose from. Many people get a great feeling of satisfaction from completing one of these. You could then move on to Tole or Decorative Painting where an artist has already taken the time to come up with the design, the colors to be used, and gives you step by step instructions on how to complete the project. This usually involves laying out the design (tracing) onto a surface of your choosing, then over-painting the tracing with the appropriate mix of colors and stroke-work. Or you can dabble in the Fine Arts where Bob Ross lays out a simple landscape painting for you and teaches you some tricks of the trade for completing a good looking painting quickly. If you are still interested and want to learn more, Jerry Yarnell and other Authors have books on perspective, composition, shading. After mastering these topics, you can actually begin painting what you want to paint and not have to copy something another artist has designed. Whichever way you become involved you can start quickly and learn a great deal in much less than 7 years
