A special message from Bill Alexander Certified instructor Chad Marshall
If your answer is "YES", then please continue reading.
My name is Chad Marshall. I became a certified oil painting
instructor with the Alexander Art company in 2007, and I've been interested
in art my entire life. I love to draw and paint, and I put this website
together so I can share my interest in drawing and oil painting with
Does this sound interesting to you? Would you like to produce your own landscape oil painting from start to finish, to give to family or friends, or to sell for a profit? I have sold many of my own paintings and given away many as gifts. There is no greater feeling than finding an owner for one of your masterpieces.
I have undeniable proof that my techniques work. In 2010, I gave my own daughter a full painting lesson. Here's what I did: I sketched a very simple scene on paper, and asked my daughter to paint the scene. Without any of my instruction, she painted the scene to the best of her ability. This is what she produced:
My daughter is obviously a beginner, so please don't criticize
her too much.You have to remember, my daughter was 6 years old
when she painted this. I allowed her to choose the materials
that she would paint with and the brushes. The only thing I chose for
her was the canvas, and it was a quality canvas.
As you can guess, I was very proud of her work. Remember, she was 6 years old when we created this piece of art together. This is the same basic scene even though it looks entirely different. Notice how many of the elements in this scene look much more realistic and show so much texture. This is the difference you will see in your work if you allow me to guide you.
Please take a look at a few examples of my work. These are the type of paintings that I want you to learn how to paint:
last one is called "Pathway To Autumn". It's
one of my favorites. I put together an instructional E-Book for this
painting a few years ago, and it's been my best seller.

Do you think you can't paint?
Maybe you don't feel like you have the ability to oil
paint or even draw a picture. I run across people like this all the
time. Maybe you say to yourself "I can't even draw a stick
figure", or "I wasn't born with natural talent,
so I can never be an artist". Anyone can learn to draw
or paint. It is not a talent given out to a select few by God. Drawing
and painting and being an artist is something that some people choose
to do, and by practice and dedication, these people become what they
want to be and produce the art they see in their mind.
But that's not all that I will show you. In my free E-Book,
"Pathway To Autumn", I give you a complete
list of supplies to complete the project, as well as step by step photographs
with descriptions. At every step, you will know exactly what to do.
And even if you have trouble, you can simply email me and I will help
you. I want you to succeed with your new hobby.
