"When You Can't Paint Out"
Jim Wilcox Instructional DVD (3 Hrs): $95
Three hours of art instruction from Jim Wilcox, who has taught successful workshops for more than 20 years. His DVDs are like workshops in a box. In this DVD Wilcox focuses in on studio painting from photographs. He covers in depth the do's and don'ts of working from reference materials while he paints a 20 x 30 snow scene that he later enlarged to a 30" x 48" that went on to win two awards (the People's Choice Award and the Award of Merit) from the Western Rendezvous of Art. One camera always shows how Jim is mixing his paints, another shows the canvas as he applies the paint, and a third shows him as he explains what he is doing and why he is doing it.
"Painting from the Outside In"
Jim Wilcox Instructional DVD (4 Hrs): $125
Four hours of art instruction from an artist who has taught successful workshops for 20 years! This DVD follows Wilcox to String Lake in Grand Teton National Park where he paints a 20" x 16" on location. After painting the location piece, Wilcox returns to his studio to enlarge the painting to a 40" x 30", thus covering important aspects of both plein air and studio painting in the same DVD. One camera always shows him mixing his paints, another shows the canvas as he applies the paint, and the third shows Jim as he explains what he is doing and why he is doing it. "Its like my plein air workshop, minus the personal abuse," Jim says of the DVD.
