"I have learned to look at paintings differently now and enjoy critiquing along with you. I challenge myself to see tangents and other shapes that distract the viewer. This opportunity is just awesome. Thank you!!!!"

“I bought the 6-week course a few months ago, and I love it. I tend to paint with much more realism than Bill, but the principles he teaches about color and brushwork have really helped my painting. I review many of the videos in the course before I start almost every painting. They help me decide where to focus my realism vs what I can leave in a more painterly style. Worth every penny to me. Thanks, Bill.”

"I started following Bill Inman 6-7 months ago. In that time, I've completed his basics course and then joined the art community here. I get lots of great support, valuable critiques, and a good amount of advice on things I can do to make better art. My background was heavily pencil and pen/ink. I was struggling to learn colors and such and had initially begun with watercolor. BUT Bill makes color mixing so simple and straightforward with oils, I switched and am making much faster progress now. I cannot recommend trying Bill's coursework and classes enough. With those, you just have to join the art community here as well and interact with other artists. Love it!"

"Bill, I’ve watched your last video at least 3 times – each time I learn new things that I previously didn’t catch! There is so much content – It is the best painting video ever and your manner as a teacher is just superb!"

"Bill, the course content is a fantastic core to get started with! Your critiques, to me, are hands down worth every penny of the tuition alone. Bill is too nice a guy to self-promote, but you won't find a course of this caliber out there anywhere for this price!"

"I am loving the 6 week training course. As a relatively new painter, I have many voids in my knowledge. Bill's course starts at the beginning and works his way to more advanced topics filling all those little voids as he goes. I'm not saying that I'll know it all when I finish the course, but I can say that I will know a lot more. Thanks to Bill for taking the time to tape this information."

A STUDENT’S STORY

 

I want to take a minute to tell you about a student of mine. Before we met, this student was seriously struggling with her painting practice. She’d tried art classes, reading books, watching DVDs, gallery & museum visits, and joining local artist groups.

But despite all her hard work, her efforts, and the amount of time she’d invested, she just could not see results. She was at her wit’s end: exhausted, angry and feeling like oil painting just wasn’t for her.

You might know this feeling. Trying all the things others are doing and not feeling like you’re getting very far.

It just doesn’t click.

You’re desperate to develop strong, attractive compositions with a distinctive style, yet whatever you try just doesn’t work.

But listen, because I’m here to tell you something very important: it’s not your fault. See, the booksellers, community college art tutors, and other struggling teachers are telling you things that not only fail to get you results, but could actually be harming your progress:

  • Advanced techniques that won’t make sense until you fix your fundamentals
  • ‘Book smarts’ and second-hand knowledge that sound good but are missing steps
  • High-level advice that isn’t actionable
  • Overly specific advice that worked for them but may not be relevant to you

So if all these other methods’ don’t work, then what DOES?

Well, you’re in luck – by discovering this page, and acquiring the techniques taught inside the Master Oil Painting Membership, you’re about to put yourself at a huge advantage and develop skills that took me years of practice and tens of thousands of dollars in tuition, books, workshops, and classes.

I’ve attended classes, purchased books, watched videos on Youtube, and paid more than I care to admit on workshops. After all that though, this is where things have finally started coming together for me. I’ve never felt so comfortable and confident in front of the easel, and I love it!” – Master Oil Painting Student
