      If you enjoy painting large jobs and are looking for a career change, you may want to consider starting your own painting business. Take the time to determine your ability to run a successful painting business, thoughtfully set up your company, and you can start to earn money doing something you love that can also make others happy%(5). Carlson’s Guide to Landscape Painting by John Carlson – You will want to study this book! The first time I read this was in at the insistence of Leon Parson. I consider this the best book on the market for painting instruction (next to Alla Prima).

      Reading this book will inspire you to get off the couch and start moving in your life. Harvard graduate, New York Assemblyman, rancher, historian, author of several books, New York City Police Commissioner, Assistant Secretary of the Navy, Governor of New York, and commanding officer of the Rough Riders are all titles that TR had before he.   Start your painting by creating a "sketch" of the image in paint. Choose a color that contrasts with the palette you have in mind for the finished piece. Then, you can paint over the underpainting entirely. If you use opaque acrylic, you'll cover any evidence of the paint below, but you can also let parts of it shine through for a dimensional effect.

      Layering is the simple technique of starting the painting with big portions of uni colors and adding more and more layers of paint and increasing the detail level. Similar to oil painting, the layering technique requires patience and waiting for each layer to dry out before applying a new one in order to preserve the purity of the colors.   11 Tools You Need to Get Started in Oil Painting 1. Paint. You'll need oil paint, obviously. But what type, and what colors? First of all, make sure you're buying oil 2. Brushes. You don't need to break the bank and buy every single type of brush when you're just getting started with 3.
