What Painting Medium's Are Suitable?


The information on the art instruction dvd's and downloads are suitable for almost every medium! Instruction is demonstrated in acrylics and acrylic paint is the most suitable medium. Techniques can be applied to such mediums as oil paints ( drying time is the only concern), gouache or casein, watercolours and decorative paints such as Americana or Jo Sonja.
"As with my workshops I preach that one should choose a medium that is comfortable to them. Finding a palette of colour and medium, should be as unique to the artist as his/her own personality. Over the years I have changed from oil to acrylic and very little of my style has changed." Derek C Wicks.
Types Of Content

Three Types Of Content!


Each video is marked with one of three content markers so you can identify the content you are purchasing. The first content marker is "Start to Finish" which means that the video you are purchasing follows the actual creation of that painting in the artists studio. These videos are a complete log of Derek painting the original piece of art! The video will start with a blank canvas and follows every step the artist takes to finished artwork. The second content marker is a "Art Technique Instruction", these videos are a step by step instruction on how to create certain techniques and textures through demonstration by Derek. These videos are designed to help artist's refine a specific texture and are not a completed original work of art. The third and final content marker is the "Image-Content" marker. This marker is used on cd's containing reference images that artist's can use to create their own original works of art. These images are royalty and licence free content. All videos are available as an instant download that is available upon payment completion, no waiting for your content! You can also opt in for a CD copy to be shipped to you for an additional shipping cost. The CD shipped option also includes instant download!
