Music Teaching vs Art Teaching

How are do these compare?

  • And why is learning art often risky? Click this to see

    How many notes or scales, and combinations of these, do you learn in music?

    There are 12 notes and major scales in music.

    Yet how do you think you would go, in trying to create music, if you were told that there are only 3 notes for you to use?

    The music world would be in uproar at just the thought of it. Musicians would be screaming from the rooftops, saying there is more to it! More!

    “Notes and scales” are the physical means by which music is created.

    “Techniques” are the physical means by which artworks are created. Yet if you want to learn art, you are taught only 3 techniques by most art teachers in the world today.

    Learning all of the 12 techniques of oil painting is easy. You just have to be shown how. These courses do that for you.

What are advanced techniques?

They're easier to do, than to talk about. But this might help:

  • What are advanced oil painting techniques? What makes them different?

    Most artists use at best 3 oil painting techniques. There are actually 12 techniques. Just like there are 12 notes or major scales in music. These are the physical means by which these art forms are created.

    Down through recent history, as our lives sped up, these other oil painting techniques fell by the wayside.

    Unfortunately, what happens these days is that poor techniques - or just those three techniques - are learned and then taught to others, so the poor teaching cycle repeats.

    So the world of oil painting now is full of misleading information. Those who learn that way, and then go on to teach that way, sadly do not know the difference, as that's the sum total of their experience and knowledge.

  • Saying "there are 12 techniques" to artists who use only 3 must upset them?

    Yep. Well, mostly. A lot of egos get bruised and many feel resentful for the time they've wasted painting as they do for all these years. Many close their minds to what else can be achieved, and stay stuck with what they do.

    But there are some who realise art is bigger than what they were taught, and these genuinely wish to create to their most expressive and powerful.

  • So this is a 'way of painting' or a 'style' of painting?

    Absolutely not. (Though that is often a knee-jerk reaction by those who don't go in and look at the information provided in the courses.)

    What this is EXACTLY and briefly is: a way of learning each of the 12 techniques, and their most significant and powerful combinations.

    At every step the courses point out that you as a sovereign artist can choose the techniques you like, and their combinations, to most powerfully and professionally express yourself. After finishing a course, people go on to create vastly different paintings, each painting a result of advanced knowledge and each powerfully expressing their unique vision. Many keep exploring, too!

    These courses differ from every other art course because the main job of this site is simply to provide you with all of the techniques and their significant combinations (there are infinite combinations) SO THAT YOU choose which ones to use and how to use them.

    Therefore, the accurate description of this course is 'a way of learning the techniques and combinations'.

  • It sounds complicated and difficult to use "advanced techniques".

    It certainly does. And that's one of the reasons why they are so rarely known and rarely taught.

    It sounds like a sales pitch but it's not - it's true. In practice it's actually easier to use advanced techniques than to struggle with just two or three like other art teachers or painters. This is because you have all of the tools for the job.

    And the techniques and combinations are extremely easy to learn.

    What happens is one technique naturally combines with another on canvas and the result is complex and awesome.

    But if all you have are three basic techniques, it doesn't matter how you combine them, you'll only ever have a basic result. That's much, much harder to get anything worthwhile happening on canvas.

    What's harder, too, is that other art teachers are essentially saying "this is what I do, you do it too." So what happens then is that students become a puppet to that art teacher's creativity, like a factory worker following instructions. That makes it almost impossible for a student to create a painting that expresses their vision, let alone expressing it powerfully.

    Unfortunately, also, artists who teach just those few techniques conflate technique with procedure. So they'll use the same technique but with, say, a bigger brush, or use that same technique they used on foliage to then work on rocks, and say that they have used a different technique.

    YouTube is full of people putting paint on canvas in very basic fashion while saying they are teaching "oil painting techniques" without knowing any of these differences.

    Learning and using advanced techniques is very easy. The hardest part is waiting for each stage to dry.

    Help is provided for you about that, too, in the courses.

  • Who else uses advanced techniques?

    Very few living artists use them. Hard to think of a famous living artist whom you'd know. If one comes to mind it will be added in this answer.

    Your best answer is found amongst the known artists whose work remains and unfortunately they don't. JMW Turner is by far the greatest exponent of all 12 techniques. Monet used them, too, but in very different combinations.

    Currently a video is in production showing these deceased famous artist's work which explains which of the 12 techniques they used and in what combinations, because this is a very good question and deserves a more extensive answer.

  • Does the instructor use all 12 techniques?


  • What is the downside? What is hard about learning and using advanced techniques?

    By far the obvious hard part is the drying time between applications. In other words: waiting. A way around that is presented in the courses.

    But there are some hidden difficulties in learning and using them. For instance, people look at a painting created with advanced techniques, the finished painting, and say "there's no way I can do that."

    Therefore they believe it's harder than what it is, and their difficulty is in trusting that it's actually very easy.

    That carries through sometimes when they do a course and start using the techniques - they make it hard on themselves, and ruin the effect, by trying too hard. It is easy to forget how easy it is, if that term is acceptable, which is one reason why a full six months is provided so you can come back into the course for a refresh.

    The techniques are performed on canvas EXTREMELY quickly - just split seconds to apply them - so sometimes a learner will take longer and work harder thinking they need to do that in order to create a complex image.

    That often just ruins the effect.

    The techniques do it all for you. Keeping it simple is one of the most important elements to putting paint onto canvas successfully.

  • Why is a painting using advanced techniques taught in four stages?

    By far the best, quickest, and surest way to learn the techniques and their combinations is to use a four stage painting structure. This is where 25 years of teaching experience benefits you - each course is optimised for your success. The four stage painting structure has been arrived at after years of trying to get it right. This teaching method does get it right - evident in the quality works immediately produced by people who have never painted before.

    It has to be emphasised that this is ONLY so that you can learn the techniques and their combinations.

    Once you learn them, of course, you can do whatever you like with them. One stage, three, four, a dozen or a hundred.

    Oh - and you get sophisticated works of art because of it. People who complete the course go on to full professional careers, or take a part-time approach and sell their artworks for increased prices.

  • That easy and that quick? For TWELVE ADVANCED oil painting techniques?

    Yes. That easy and that quick.

    You can change your creative life, and change your entire life, by using advanced techniques, learned very quickly in four stages.

    Enrol in a course and see it all happen right there before your eyes.

    If you are still unsure, the Budget Price course has been created so for a very cheap price, you can have the knowledge and benefits quickly.

    Then hopefully, too, you can go on to teach advanced oil painting techniques, and help clear away those constraining limitations to repeat the advanced understanding of oil painting technique.

Words from successful artists...

“I came across Robert's courses online many years ago. It immediately hit me! This is exactly what I was missing all these years to raise my level in painting from amateur painting to professional painting. (I graduated art school.)

And indeed the magic happened. After I purchased the full course and went through it meticulously and did everything Robert explains there with his endless enthusiasm, My painting jumped a step. I knew how to start and how to finish a painting, professionally. There was no more struggling of technique for me. And I could free up to deal with the content of my work.

And since then I have exhibited and sold my works in Israel and around the world to collectors. I send a big thanks from here to Robert for being my master at the right moment in my career.

Thank you

“I attended the course Advanced Oil Painting Techniques from Robert last year online. And i am still trying out and exploring the amazing huge possibilities, that these techniques are offering. And i have great fun with it. Robert teaches these amazing techniques, getting you in a situation, to feel safe for painting with oil paint in a sophisticated way. He gives you a systematic procedure, with which you can build up your painting in a step by step way to an amazing end. But you can also feel free with these techniques, to use them in a way you like for getting the results you want. And you also can feel free, to experiment with these techniques as you like, without ruining the painting technically.

I worked in my artwork a long time with pencils and pastels. And i also tried out acrylic and airbrush. There came a time, where i reached a limit, where i could not longer expand with these techniques in a way, i wanted. So, Robert's teaching came to me at the right time. And it is not only the transmitting of techniques, that makes this course very good. It is also, and especially the way, Robert is teaching. The spirit of a teacher is very important for the student, to be able, to grasp the lessons.

  • Why call them "Professional Quality" paintings?

    Because these are paintings that strongly exhibit the fact the artists know what they're doing. The paintings have a look and an aura of exceptional character.

    When you do them, these are paintings that most powerfully express who you are as an artist - your vision made physical in the best way possible.

    The amateur struggles, is dissatisfied, and gets poor results. The professional knows exactly how to get that image onto canvas.

  • How do I paint powerfully and successfully?

    You cannot do it if you don't have the techniques. Techniques in oil painting are the same as notes and scales in music. If you don't know your notes and scales you cannot compose masterpieces. Same with painting.

  • How many techniques do most artists use?

    Three. There are twelve. This course is the only place where you get them all.

  • If I learn every technique, I can paint whatever I want, any way I want?

    Yes. But if you don't know how to combine them it will take you years to get them to work for you. (A musician can know all the notes and scales but still only produce noise.) This course teaches you how to combine them so you get masterworks immediately.

  • So I get all of the 12 techniques and how to combine them?

    Yes. Different techniques in different combinations produces very different results. Once you learn the techniques and their powerful combinations you have the ability to choose which techniques and which combinations for any subject you want to create.

  • Why is this course different?

    This course gives you all of the 12 techniques, and their successful combinations. Once you learn these you can paint any subject you want, any way you want. Other art teachers choose the subject and essentially say to you: "This is how I do it, you do it too." That means you are not being a true artist. You are simply copying their way of painting. You are merely a puppet. Other courses do not give you the unique sovereign power to create any image you want, any way you want. This one does.

  • How long does it take to learn the techniques?

    If oil paint dried instantly you could learn them all in a single day.

  • So why paint in oils?

    Because acrylic, watercolor or guache cannot physically do what oil paint can do. Because oil paint has a richness and is physically capable of producing effects you cannot otherwise do. And because when you create in oils you are a part of the great tradition of history. Great art masters are considered great because of the powerful and unique effects they achieve. Oil paint provides these effects.
