Infuse Your Landscape and Flower Paintings with Color and Life

Full-Day 8 hours 8-5
$510/4 day workshop
Are your landscape and flower paintings feeling tired or timid? Let me help you bring life and joy into your work. How? I’ll teach you what I know about juicy, saturated color combinations, how to use thick textured strokes of paint in tree foliage or flower petals for naturalistic edges. You’ll learn how to use vigorous, unpredictable brushwork to capture the attention of your viewers and make painting more fun for you. I will do both plein air and studio flower painting demos each morning and point out how to eliminate unnecessary details. The demos will prepare you to paint each afternoon. The first morning is the exception – I will teach you to do some fun, quick (10-15 minute) shape painting exercises to help you simplify complicated landscape or flower scenes (I will supply the ‘canvases’ for you to use for this exercise). Each day I will demonstrate bravura painting and different brush techniques, and then help each of you with your paintings and any questions you might have. I will try to finish one of the studies during the workshop so you can see my process for creating a gallery-ready painting.
Bill Inman sold his first painting through a professional art gallery in 1983 at the age of 17. While attending art school throughout the 80’s he continued selling his work professionally and went full-time in 1991.
His love of painting is closely matched by his love for teaching. He taught his first workshop in 1993. Today his Master Oil Painting online courses are some of the most popular training courses in the world, having helped thousands of artists in over 100 countries around the world increase their skills and understanding of painting.
Bill is free with his knowledge – he holds nothing back. He would love to see each of his students exceed what he has done!
While he completed grueling illustration and life drawing classes, he became enthralled with his painting mentor’s Russian Impressionist style of bold vigorous brushwork and juicy color.
His goal is to use as little detail as possible to convey an image, so the viewers’ imagination participates and allows them to experience his original enthusiasm, wonder, and awe. “The flowers seem so alive” collectors comment, “that I can smell the fragrance”. He uses on-location studies, memory, imagination, and digital photos to create his loose naturalistic works.
His desire is to help viewers feel like they are looking out a window or doorway into a beautiful scene, one that beckons them to forget the world for a while and simply enjoy the peace and serenity, the incredible beauty Heavenly Father has provided.
His artwork has sold consistently through galleries since 1983. He is the recipient of the Congressional Art Award. His work has appeared in Southwest Art, Fine Art Connoisseur, and Western Art magazines. His paintings can be found in numerous national and international collections from Switzerland to Saudi Arabia and throughout the United States and Canada.
“Bill you are so kind, I have to say that you have truly inspired me in a way that has rekindled my love for painting, your videos and the way that you teach really took away the fear that I had to paint and gave me the courage to pick up my brushes and do what I love. I am so grateful that I happened across your videos they definitely brought me back and I will forever be grateful to you for that.”
“Bill is an incredible Artist Teacher, he makes it so easy to understand and I just love the way he explains everything! He’s the best guy I’ve seen in lots of years, truly awesome artist!”
“Just wanted to let you know how your sharing has affected me. I LOVE your lessons and teaching style. I LOVE your depth of gratitude for our Great Designer and the gift of beauty He put there right in front of our eyes. I LOVE the knowledge I’ve gained from your efforts and the confidence that is growing within my painting attempts. A humongous thank you for all your hard work and time and to your son who brings this digital accomplishment to ALL YOUR STUDENT FANS!”
