A secret Bill Davidson has discovered about the actual paint itself

This happens at the moment of applying paint to canvas

Bill has a unique teaching style. He often links new things to older, well-known things. That makes it very easy and quick to learn the secrets he is sharing.

Through trial and error, Bill has discovered that your best paintings will require you to make THREE passes with color.

On the FIRST PASS, the paint you’re using should be the consistency of OLIVE OIL.

The SECOND PASS should be using paint the consistency of BUTTER

Then the THIRD PASS happens. This pass is critical. Your paint should be the consistency of THIS. You’ll not only find out what that last key consistency should be, you’ll also find out WHY these three passes NEED these consistencies.

Few artists will tell you the “consistency” of the paint you should be using. When you think about it, that’s strange. Obviously it makes a difference if you are trying to spread very thick paint versus thin, runny paint.

It makes a difference in how much area the color will cover and in thickness, texture, and impact. 

Bill has made this distinction AND gives you the right comparison to everyday items so you KNOW when you have it RIGHT. Think of how powerful that will be for you.

Then, when you have completed the THREE passes of color, you’ll let it completely dry. 

After that, there’s one mini-step Bill shares that will bring all of the colors together and add the final secret part that simply draws eyes in like a magnet. 

THIS is when you get maximum attention for your final paintings. THIS may be the reason that collectors, peers, and everyone take REAL notice. You may end up selling more paintings for more money with THIS one final step.
