“Once upon a time…”
The greatest stories begin that way.
You know you’re about to go on an adventure.
The same feeling of excitement and expectation happens when you look at an engrossing story … rather a painting … by the great Nicholas Coleman.
Nicholas Coleman has an unfair advantage: his dad. You see, Nicholas grew up as his father, Michael Coleman, was building a massive career and enormous following as a landscape artist. As Nicholas tells it, “It was an accidental apprenticeship.” Then, it was off to college.
Nicholas attended Brigham Young University in Utah where he received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree.
As he returned to work again with his legendary dad, Nicholas’ career began to explode. They had an energy between them and pulled each other in unique directions.
Most of us don’t have that type of environment, and we often struggle to improve our skills. Many of us have sometimes listened to and learned from painters who were no more talented than we were. And, of course, that was not helpful at all.
That’s what makes this video so transformational.
Nicholas’ talent is off the charts. And it is fueled by a genuine passion for telling a story that is slipping away over time. Often his paintings have a common narrative of struggle, fortitude, and resiliency through characters and setting. His paintings are a way to preserve the fading heritage of the American West.
Sometimes just losing yourself in one of his paintings allows you to flirt with the fantasy of trading your modern life for a simpler time, out in the open, often by a fire. No distractions from technology. Just the calm evening, the fire, and your thoughts.
This is true magic. Nicholas takes you into each brushstroke and you see — for the first time — HOW he creates this incredible effect.
Once you see it, you’ll be amazed how quickly you can become proficient at creating this same effect with just a little practice. It will transform your ability to make smoke look real.
Telling the story … Storypainting
Yes, paintings CAN tell a story. But do your paintings tell a story? Or does the painting actually get in the way?
You’ve probably looked at a painting and noticed the values were off, the colors were too harsh, or the edges were too crisp. All of this adds up to a feeling of “something’s off,” and you just can’t get into the story because the painting itself is stopping you.
Nicholas has solved all of that with his techniques. He will show you exactly how to make all those problems go away so your painting can share its story easily and emotionally.
Take a look at the demonstration painting and prepare to paint right along with him so you can put everything you like into practice.
If this painting intimidates you in any way, please don’t worry — you won’t have to go it alone. This is exactly what Nicholas teaches in this course. It will feel so good to create a painting so beautiful, won’t it?
Take a closer look at the painting and don’t miss these incredible features: water, reflections, smoke, fire, a figure, an amazing sky, and so much more…
Along with Nick, you’ll start with a blank canvas and move right along with him as he takes you through every step.
Just think … unlike traditional workshops, you’ll have these lessons on video. You can pause, rewind, stop if life gets busy, and pick up again right where you left off.
