Creating Dimension Course 3: Painting Guide to Multi-Layered Panels, with Paul Messink

In addition to our own video program, we have partnered with Paul Messink to bring his Creating Dimension series to you!  Course details are below. Want to purchase?  CLICK HERE to sign up directly with Paul Messink!

Course 3 will teach you to create glass panels with incredible depth and dimension. In over 11 hours of video content, you’ll take a deep dive into how Paul creates these panels, covering painting techniques, how to paint realistic landscapes, and how to maximize the feeling of depth and dimension in your multi-layered panels. He goes into more depth on the topics of image selection, how to divide your images into layers, and where to find images. He also includes painting and composition tips, how to display your work effectively, and how to deal with repairs and coldwork.

This course includes over 5 hours of painting demos. You’ll also improve the look of your own projects by his own examples, as he decomposes 10 different example pieces, showing you exactly how he divided the layers, and discussing the specific challenges in each piece and how he solved them.

Each of the demos have been recorded with multiple camera angles, so you can watch them from an overhead view as well as a side view. (With these close-up camera views, you’ll be closer to the action than you can get in a live course!)

Course 3 also comes with an extensive set of handouts, including roughly 100 pages of information that give you all the most important information in written form. Two separate handouts summarize all of the firing schedules, and the materials lists for each project and demo.

Raise your artistry to a new level, while painting beautiful multi-layered panels that dazzle the eye, and which invite new buyers to purchase your work.
