Here’s what’s in store for you!
You have a story to tell.
But HOW you tell your stories matter. Good storytellers know how to craft a great story, and great storytelling painters know how to craft a painting that tells that story.
Imagine YOUR STORY… communicated through paint.
Like writing a book or creating a scrapbook, paintings are a way of capturing and sharing what’s important to you … a story told through your eyes and painted in a way that invites the viewer to follow along and feel the meaning of the story.
Like most of us, you might think it takes words to tell a story … but we’re going to show you how a painting is worth a thousand words!
Meet Robin Cheers ... a storyteller. Through her contemporary impressionist-style paintings, she tells all kinds of different stories — from the sometimes routine activities of daily life all the way to documenting a once-in-a-lifetime trip or experience.
She is just the right artist to show you how to paint your stories. Her ability to create a strong design and color plan is just the beginning of what will become your own personal documentation of a moment in time.
Through demonstrating beautiful brushwork, magnificent color, and intentional texture, Robin is going to demonstrate how to paint the stories that are meaningful in your life.
Robin pointed out several ways to use brush handling to achieve a better finished look. Her explanations were clear and concise. Overall a good learning video.
I found this video very helpful and am sure I'll watch it a few more times. Robin paints the way I aspire to, loose, gestural and intuitive. Her narrative as she paints is very clear. and thought-provoking. Like getting started with your left brain, then using your right brain to stay loose. All you have to do is watch her paint to get the part about her brushstrokes: variety, using different parts of the brush, etc.I also enjoyed watching her color-mixing, and she has some interesting colors on her palette I want to try. Very happy I bought this one.
Really enjoyed this video and learned a lot. Not sure why another reviewer said they didn't learn about brushstrokes? but all throughout the video the artist demos different ways to hold and use the paintbrush, and other ways to manipulate the paint. I especially liked the few times she showed how to fix common issues that might come up (i.e. if an area Is painted too dark). Have a better understanding of how to approach this style of painting-- glad I purchased!
I really feel I got my money's worht with this video. It was interesting to hear her decision making as she progressed
I enjoyed this DVD very much. It was not difficult to understand. Her voice and explanation were simple and soothing not harsh and over the top. I enjoyed and learned many things about painting the impressionist style of painting and have already incorporated some techniques into my own work.
