Carrera Marble (cut from the same quarry as Michelangelo's)
carved by art-techniques.com artist Robert Bosler
When Michelangelo lit upon his art with candles dripping from his head-dress and Leonardo envisioned a helicopter - and Titian developed the scumble somewhat against tradition - and JMW Turner transformed his painting through glazes on the eve of major exhibitions, it's fair to say none of them would have ever conceived of such a thing as the internet.
Painting in oils has developed significantly since the time of those guys, probably far beyond what they might have imagined- and so too has the means by which the teaching of modern advanced technique can be delivered.
The small and dedicated team at art-techniques.com are intensely aware of the value of internet delivery and it's ability to deliver information into your home.
We strive to bring you the best of the best in advanced painting techniques.
What is largely unknown about advanced painting techniques is that the techniques are easy. But in this fast-paced world, these techniques are rarely taught. Today, people put paint on canvas and make it look like something and then that ends up as 'art instruction' somewhere and the end result is a massive pool of people who are painting far below what they can do. Just because paint has been put on canvas and an image arrived doesn't mean it's art. So much 'art instruction' is actually teaching craftwork - not art. What's missing? The powerful tools are missing. You cannot create a thrilling artwork with poor technique.
Our credentials reside in our dedicated service towards your needs - we are here to produce lasting and significant results with your work - and they reside more importantly in the quality of teaching we make available. (Your teacher's art work is viewable in Australia at the address shown in the photograph below). We don't profess to be advanced in internet matters, for that is not our focus nor our history, yet we have enjoyed the facility of a quality functioning website and its ability to make information and assistance ready at your fingertips.
But what we are about is getting results with your oil painting, at the easel. We assist also in what happens after that, but nearly two and a half decades of experience have taught us that your thrilling satisfaction begins when you squeeze out the paint on your palette. Our role is to help you transfer that paint into a Fine Art work which captures your unique and powerful vision.
Powerful? Let's not be awkward with that description. Power can be gentle as well. Importantly, power is a key to creative freedom. Even if your artwork affects only you, that is enough reason for our existence.
But we know your art can bring unheralded joy and reward to so many people.
Central to what we do is the provision of our art instruction. You want to paint. This is the place to be. There's enough here for you already to be thrilled and satisfied with your art - both on canvas, and in your art career. We'll update with (hopefully imaginitive) additions as time moves on.
Welcome, and we hope to share the journey more intimately with you.
See you at the easel !
