HI Glenn I have purchased all your DVD’s and found them really easy to follow with amazing results. My 15 year old son recently went on his year 9 trip to the Northern Territory and Kakadu. He also had to present a personal report on the trip, highlighting areas that were important to him. The sunset at Kakadu over the waterholes is a memory that will stay with him forever and he decided that a painting would express the colour and majesty of the scene rather than words. The only draw back was that this was to be a public presentation in front of students and relatives and he had never really completed a painting before. However I referred him to your DVD’s and we decided to combine SUNSET and HORIZON . After two attempts (thin paint is the secret) he achieved a remarkable piece that got him a huge round of applause and exclamations. He explained that the work was 100% his own and that he was taught the method via your art series which allowed him to improvised and make it his own. I have included photos and you are free to use them as you wish.
Many thanks Cara and Milo Letho.
Learn how to paint abstract art with Glenn Farquhar
In this interview Glenn describes how he started his art career painting art for his own home renovation, and how he expanded on this to eventually open his own art studio and art gallery. Glenn started his art classes and found that people wanted to learn how to paint art like his. Glenn had a lot of art ideas and art techniques which he used in his art lessons and thought he could have people painting art like his around the world. He decided to create his art DVD series to share his art classes with the people who could not come to his art studio. Now anyone who wants to paint art like Glenn's can learn to paint in the comfort of their own home, anywhere in the world.
The Step by Step Abstract Art DVD series has proven to be a great success worldwide, with artists learning how to paint abstract art in a large range of art styles and art techniques. The feedback and photos from all of the artists from around the world has proven to Glenn that the need was there. Knowing what to paint can be the hardest part of learning how to paint abstract art. Once you know what to paint, you then need to know how to paint it. This is where the Abstract Art DVD's have been so helpful to the artists who follow Glenn's art classes. Glenn teaches you the simple art techniques of how to paint the artwork with the art ideas and art techniques, and then it up to you to take your art in what ever direction you choose. Painting art can be great fun if you have some direction to start painting pictures. The Abstract Art DVD series has all of the art ideas and art materials listed for you to have a great start and helps you take the guess work out of starting to learn how to paint your own artwork.
Where did Glenn Learn to Paint Abstract Art?
This is where I began my career as an artist. I'm sure this is a familar site for many artists out there. Yes, this is the balcony of the inner city apartment where I began to paint. These photos certainly take me down memory lane, I had no idea where playing around making a mess would take me. You can see I covered the balcony with drop sheets, to avoid being evicted by my wife! Who would have thought I'd be creating art for Interior Designers across Australia and teaching art to people around the world. I designed my instructional Art DVD series for people who have limited space to work with in mind. Everyone has to start somewhere and space should not get in the way of your creativity. You can have as many art lessons and do as many art courses as you like, but you need a place where you can practice your art techniques. People ask me, "What made you start to paint?". The story is simple, it all started when we needed a piece of artwork for our new apartment and my wife Kim started painting a piece on the balcony and I joined in....the rest is history. I found I had a flare for it and here I am today.
"HANGING BY A THREAD" Abstract Artwork
Below you will find a behind the scenes look at Glenn creating a large artwork called Hanging by a Thread. This artwork was commissioned by one of Glenn's Interior Designers for installation in a large home overlooking Sydney Harbour. You can see this displays the same process as shown on DVD series1.
You can create all the wall art in the DVD Series in any size that suits your decor. Home Decor Art can be created to suit the space you have to work with, so don't be afraid to make the artwork the size that works best for you. Don't let the size of the artwork intimidate your creativity. Your wall art can be any size you want it to be. All you have to do is take your time, follow the easy Step By Step DVD, and you will suprise yourself at how creative you can be.....give it a try! As the images below demonstrate the larger the wall art is, the more of an impact piece it becomes. Remember what Glenn always says: "Fortune Favours The Brave", so roll up those sleeves, be brave, and give it a go. Happy Painting!
