Which painting should I do?

At Inglis Academy we are in the business of developing art literacy through the development of a painting repertoire.

We use the same overall process for all of our paintings. That is the genius of the system. In fact some students have done the same paintings more than once, I personally paint each one at least four times before adding it to the course.

Of course each painting has different blends of colour mixing, brush technique, compositional and tonal analysis and much more. That is why I have created this syllabus, to give a balanced path to mastery.

The Masterwork series is organised into four streams.

  • Van Gogh - Language of Line
  • Cezanne - Essential Shapes of Everything
  • Monet - Language of Nature
  • Aussie Landscapes - Use the techniques of Van Gogh, Cezanne and Monet to paint Australian landscapes.

You can join any of the classes. Process and technique is more important than the subject.

You will finish a painting in the lesson and learn the processes and techniques used by the masters of Western Art.

The processes are documented in our publications,start with the latest:

Private Art Instruction

Enjoy one-on-one art instruction from myself, Peter Inglis.

I have written more than 12 books on art and created a syllabus which has seen hundreds of people enter the art world through painting masterworks by Van Gogh, Monet and Cezanne.

Talk to me about your specific requirements and I will tailor a session to your needs.

Here are a couple of examples.

Michelle is the happy owner and the creator of this interpretation of Monet's Waterlilies No.1, 1916.

Michelle H's Monet's Waterlilies No.1, 1916.

Having participated in six masterwork painting sessions Michelle felt ready to tackle a larger work. She had previously painted this piece in a regular session, and so was already familiar with the subject.

To complete this large version required 8 hours of private one-one-one coaching.

This client, already a professional illustrator, wanted to brush up on her painting skills. We used Monet: Garden in Bloom at Sainte-Addresse, 1866 as our subject.

I analysed the subject and coached her to finishing a successful painting in one session.
