Great New Oil Painting DVD By Ian McKown, Available Now!

 

 

I've always encouraged tattooists to try working in other artistic mediums, particularly in oil or acrylic paint, because developing a stronger and more well-rounded set of art skills always translates to better tattooing. And painting can be so immensely enjoyable too. We haven't had a new oil painting DVD in the catalog since Shawn Barber's long-sold out Foundation Oil Painting DVD, so we are excited to announce the latest addition to our catalog. It's by Ian Robert McKown, who has been teaching seminars in the convention circuit over the past few years and has become known for his distinctive high-contrast painterly style on both skin and canvas. You can find his instructional book on Light and Shadow in our catalog as well.

 

 

Painting A Rose From Reference In Oils is a beautifully produced DVD, loaded with great step-by-step tools and detailed background information. It shows the project from a variety of camera angles so you can really see it develop up close and follow the brush as paints are mixed on the palette. The project is shown over the course of close to two and a half hours, with every step described thoroughly. The DVD also includes a slideshow of Ian's work in a variety of different mediums. It's a great course, not only for new painters but also for those experienced in oils who are looking to expand their technique. We've got it now at our online store.

 

Thanks, and we'll be in touch soon!
