Learn to Oil Paint DVD Video Lessons
Professor Hall Groat, Chairman of the Art and Design Department at SUNYBroome began producing instructional oil painting videos in his studio in 2006 in order to help his college students learn the basics of oil painting. Professor Groat has produced twenty-eight different painting videos that offer both beginning and advanced students a variety of learn to paint lessons, including how to paint classical still life, landscape and architecture.
Students have stated that Hall’s painting videos are the only ones on the market that actually teach oil painting in a very detailed step-by-step manner, providing an explanation for every stage of the painting. The painting videos introduce topics such as, how to set up the composition with a simple undertone, suggest light and shadow through the proper color temperature and value, and indicate the textures through varying brushstrokes. Each of Professor Groat’s twenty-seven learn to paint lessons are fully narrated. During the actual painting process, he describes in great depth specifically how and why he is applying the paint in a certain way, and the reasons behind working with certain color temperatures and values. Within the first few DVD videos he introduces various oil painting concepts by organizing them into the phases presented within volume #1 DVD. Students have often stated that Professor Groat is very gifted at explaining things in a way that all students can learn from. Within his introductory college painting courses places an emphasis on teaching through demonstration.
