In this workshop manual, you will learn techniques in how to produce this wonderful fall landscape scene. The techniques learned will also improve skills in other genres of painting, but mostly, will bring the FUN back into your oil painting endeavors. Hi! I'm Delmus Phelps and I've been painting most of my adult life. Allow me to show you how I work within my studio!

As a full time artist, one of the most asked questions I get at shows and galleries is "how do you do that?"

This isn't just from customers, but other artists too.

So much so, that I felt I needed to write a little bit about my techniques. Well, they're really not MY techniques. They've been around for over 400 years, and I was introduced to them in the 1970's while in High School. That when very few teachers even knew of them as they have fallen out of favor with most art schools.

Over the years, I have refined them as my art improved. I enjoy sharing my knowledge, and I know you too, will be thrilled at the paintings you will produce using this information.

So come on, and join the resurgence in creating classical, realistic oil painting and all things beautiful!

How do you do that?

This is the number one question I get at shows and galleries. This book will try to explain the process in plain English with a boat load of pictures to help the novice or experienced artist see some of my tricks of the trade in creating a beautiful landscape painting.

I’ll try my best not to let any philosophical exposés become added, but beware, some of it usually wears off, and I apologize ahead of time. Painting with a realistic manner in mind, I have weathered different art movements in this country that were far away from classical art.

I’ve heard it said that, Modern art takes no time or talent. I cannot agree with this statement totally, because I have seen some work that simply amazed me, with both the technique in its creation and the results of the finished work. My hat is off to those that are successfully creating work in this arena and making a living at it.

Most art schools, colleges, and universities today teach several styles of painting. Most however, lean toward the modern art genre.

What I show in this book is not typically taught in art schools today. I will show you a style that follows a time proven series of rules or steps. Go outside the set of rules, you may find good results, and then you may not.

What you must remember is your painting may look great to you now, throughout your lifetime, however when you step outside the rules, this may not be guaranteed.

Modern artists' as recently as the 1920s and 30s have seen their work crack, peel, fade, and pop off the canvas because of unsafe practices used in the creation of their work. Some of these works were less than 50 years of age.

Following sound, time proven, classical methods will keep your painting looking its best not only throughout your lifetime, but also for generations in the future.

I like to view my work as a craft. A craft that is similar to a carpenter, a plumber, or even an electrician. With the proper skills, (which are learned), anyone can paint. Let me repeat this, learning these skills does not require that you have some kind of inherited artistic talent, but rather, a drive to succeed in this craft.

Where does talent fit in? Talent helps with that your confidence level to do this kind of work is already high. Talent is simply things you have quickly learned elsewhere that can be also used in the art realm.

It usually means good eye to hand coordination, (necessary in accurate drawing and in brain surgery). It could be a good eye for composition, (helpful in setting up the still-life), which is also used by interior designers and florists everywhere.

Using steps that have been handed down, and some self taught, I will show you these same skills within this book.

This e-book will show you how I've painted this landscape painting from start to finish, and hopefully give you a box full of tools to use in your next landscape endeavor!

So here is a saying from an unknown author that rings so true when it comes to those of us that call ourselves an ARTIST.


"The common worker works with his/her hands.

The common craftsman works with his hands and his mind.

What do you call the person that works with his hands, his mind and his heart?

How to use this book:

My recommendation would be to read it once through in its entirety to get the whole view. Then, read each chapter before you proceed with the particular step discussed for your own painting.

It’s a long book with lots of pictures to guide you. Take
