Paint Like a Pro Volume 1: Preparation Perfection


Paint Like a Pro Volume 1: Preparation Perfection

Can you relate to this story? 

You just finished your latest painting. You struggled to do everything just right, but your eye keeps going to that one UGLY rose or that area where the floats are splotchy, or the bumpy grain of the end wood, the streaky finish or the linework that is crooked and wavy.

Maybe you are frustrated that each painting takes weeks or months to finish and then you get frustrated and start a NEW, EASIER project. While the other project looms like a demon telling you that you are a quitter or just not talented enough? Pretty soon the pile of UFO's (Un-Finished Objects) are huge.

Quit suffering! 
 Painting should be relaxing and FUN and with the right techniques it will be EASY for you to relax and enjoy your hobby!
