Discover the Simple Techniques That Make Painting Complex Subjects and Vehicles Easier!

After today, drawing and painting complex shapes and textures will no longer intimidate you.

“I saw a gorgeous truck, and I really wanted to paint it, but honestly, I was just too scared!”

If that sounds like something you’d say, then I have good news for you.

Today, you’re going to discover an ingenious method to paint any vehicle with confidence, even if you’ve never painted vehicles before.

You’ll be able to paint all the vehicle’s complex shapes more easily and accurately (especially elliptical shapes) using techniques you may not have tried before.

That’s not all. You’ll soon find painting textures (like glass, rust, chrome, and more) doesn’t have to be complicated!

If you’re struggling to paint shiny hubcaps, uniquely shaped hoods, front headlights, or any part of the vehicle … look no further.

Because now you can finally paint complex subjects and textures most artists avoid, turning you into a more courageous and more exploratory painter.

Your compositions will vastly improve, further enhancing your storytelling skills as your artwork will look more engaging.

As artists, we want to paint and express what our creative heart’s desire without fear.

I remember feeling so intimidated by a painting that it made me question my abilities.

I was haunted by questions like, “Am I able to do this? Should I quit? How is that even possible?” 

Fortunately, I saw the light after meeting the right teacher. What she shared gave me the confidence I lost, and I became a much more fearless painter soon afterward.

She shared techniques and insights that progressed my skills in a matter of weeks, compared to months if I were to learn them on my own.

Maybe you want to paint a classic muscle car that’s been through its Grease-era heyday … or a rugged Jeep that’s gone on adventures like Indiana Jones … or even an old abandoned tractor rusting in a corner of a barn and covered in spider webs … but something held you back.

Don’t worry, because today, what you’re about to discover will help you ease your fears and increase your confidence in painting complex subjects.

With expert guidance, you’ll soon have the skills to paint any vehicle you want without feeling intimidated ever again.

Painting Vehicles Doesn’t Have to Be Difficult!

Over the years, I’ve seen many vehicles that are begging to be painted.

The thing is, painting vehicles requires a distinct skill set.

How do you get the perspectives right without having it look amateurish? 

How do you paint elliptical shapes accurately?

What about the textures of the vehicle that give it character?

All those challenges make painting vehicles quite daunting, especially if you’ve never tried it before.

The good news is that there are several simple ways to approach those elements, and there’s no better artist to instruct you than the amazing Lyn Boyer!

Lyn Boyer: Wheels & Steel

Excellent Instruction Video.

This is a really good instruction video. It is lengthy and very detailed , and took several hours of watching and painting along, but is well worth the time and money invested. I used acrylics instead of oil, and everything was easily adaptable , it just took a bit of experimentation with color mixing. Lyn`s instruction style is pleasant, relaxed, and articulate . The perspective exercise on how to properly draw/paint wheels from various angles is really valuable in itself. Real good instruction on artistic rendering of vehicles, as well as how to paint the reflection of light on metal and glass surfaces. I highly recommend this video.

Wheels and Steel

This is such a good video. Lyn Boyer is a great teacher. She doesn't talk constantly or too much, just enough to explain well what she is thinking and doing. It's easy to follow along, and the video is both educational and entertaining.

She demonstrates how to paint reflections and chrome, turning form on shiny and matt surfaces, and colorful darks so well you think you can do it, too. The concepts are useful for other subjects as well.

She provides useful, but not laborious, preliminary exercises for developing good composition and technical rendering of ellipses; and she clearly appreciates the beauty of classic vehicles.
If I had known how much I would like the video, I'd have spent the extra $25 for the DVD.

Great video

This was one of the best videos I've watched. Lyn is an excellent artist and teacher. I have painted old vehicles for years and really loved what she did and how she explained it all.

Fantastic teaching

Really can't say enough positive things about this wonderful video. Lyn Boyer is positive, empathetic and straightforward in her approach, and each learning segment clearly and logically builds from the previous one.

I had bought her previous video ‘No Fear Oil Painting' and had gained so much from it that I was keen to get this one as soon as it came out.

I enjoy painting cars and other vehicles when the opportunity arises - it's not an especial favourite of mine - but the lessons in this video about composition, reflectivity, perspective, elipses will benefit you by giving you the tools to paint many other subjects such as still life, buildings as well as many other things - the possibilities are endless.

Lyn's greatest overall strength I think is in her ability to give painters confidence, and help you think differently and more creatively about paintings through music. This alone is priceless and makes any of her videos including this one an extremely worthwhile purchase.
