Learning a variety of paint techniques can transform any plain surface into something quite exciting. You can explore everything from painting acrylics onto a canvas to decorating birdhouses!

Are you looking for more from your decorative painting experience?  Some of the techniques will include how to paint landscapes, how to paint eyes and faces and even how to paint abstract! By trying different painting techniques a whole new creative world opens up to you.

Want to learn color washing? It’s all right here. You say you want to improve your strokework, floats and liner work. Wish you could do great lettering? We know you do!

There are so many things to try and ways of doing a technique in different ways. You may also need help with choosing paint colors. And of course if you ever want to know something very specific you can always drop us a line right here! We’re even going to be offering some free painting lessons and online painting classes too... from crafty projects to more sophisticated works.

Many of our visitors have asked how to paint trees. In response I have published this detailed step-by-step tutorial.

Learning these techniques can be easy or they can also be very challenging. But like all skills, the more you try different things and keep practicing, the better you get.

And don't be shy about trying something that's never been done before. Who knows, maybe you'll invent something really, really great!!

The best thing to do when you learn something new is to just not worry about making mistakes. Don't give up if you don't get it right away. Be open to having fun with the process.
