The Secret to Oil Painting with Light & Color
DVD

This brand-new DVD will help you with a problem that all landscape painters face: how to represent a believable illusion of light. When working from photographs, it's so easy to get trapped in the camera's assessment of light and shadow. It distorts reality and doesn't show the often subtle temperature relationships accurately. Michael shows you how to observe color temperature accurately and how to bring that knowledge to your paintings with a start to finish demonstration in oil with concepts that are useful to every medium.

The Secret of Oil Painting Wet Into Wet
DVD

Oil painters who develop this essential skill can start and complete a painting in one session, which enables you to capture moving light and shadow when you paint outdoors. Michael shows you what materials and techniques are best suited for painting wet-into-wet and takes you through a full painting demonstration in oil to illustrate.

The Secret to Pastel Painting en Plein Air
DVD

Plein air painters of every medium will benefit from this new DVD where Michael teaches artists how to make decisions and paint quickly outdoors. Because light and shadow move so quickly in an outdoor setting, it's important for painters of any medium to learn how to make their "best guess" to capture the moment without sacrificing mood and magic. Michael shows you his approach to painting quickly in the field and takes you through a full painting demonstration in pastel to illustrate.
