How To Loosen Up Your Painting

With 3 Colours, 3 Brushes and 3 Minutes

We've all seen those paintings that seem to jump off the canvas and grab you. Some artists just seem to have that "knack" of loose brushwork. It’s like every stroke of the brush produces fireworks. Decisive and confident.

Ever felt frustrated that your own work is just a bit lifeless… no "wow" factor? You’ve tried copying photos, you’ve trawled endless art on Pinterest, you’ve probably invested in some expensive art supplies… but something is still missing. You still can’t find that loose, expressionistic approach you’ve been yearning for.

Because… here’s the thing: a simple yet powerful painting just isn't as easy as it looks. But…

What if I told you that "looseness" is not some magic gift... that it is a learnable skill?

I've created this course to bridge the gap. Between what we see... and what we want to express.

In this course you will discover 3 distinctive approaches to loose brushwork, each of which will generate loads of new ideas for your own work.

It's a completely self-paced online course. You watch it whenever you want and you get lifetime access.

Here's What You Will Learn:

Module 1: Warming Up For Success
  • Why is warming up essential?
  • How athletes develop muscle memory and how artists can use it too.
  • A sequence of 3 warmup exercises you can use to develop looseness and be able paint from memory.

  • With our exercises completed, it’s time to paint!
  • A demonstration in oils and acrylics.

  • How do we create variety in our painting?
  • Learn how one paintbrush can produce 16 different marks.
  • The importance of underpainting, how to set up “accidents”.
  • This is where your unique style really begins to unfold!


Module 4: The Microscope Method
  • Does your work end up with too much detail?
  • Learn the 3 step process that starts from the big picture.
  • A bold approach that lets you preserve the very best bits from every stage of your painting.

In this course you will look “over my shoulder” as I complete 3 paintings and explain my process in real time with lots of handy tips.

Meet Your Teacher

Hi, I’m Richard Claremont. I used to be a full-time postman, struggling to paint in my spare time. I painted little street scenes in an old cigar box while I was out delivering the mail. In the early days (we are talking 90s here… yes… no internet!) it was pretty tough getting your art noticed...

Then something amazing happened. The internet came along. I managed to build a following on Instagram and began selling my work. I appeared on TV as “The Painting Postie”. My art career started to take off… I won a major art prize, exhibited in Paris and have now been a full-time artist for over 3 years!

The reason I am telling you all this is to make the point that achieving your dreams is possible. Whether you want to paint just for the joy of it, or whether you’re ready to take those first small steps to becoming a full-time artist… there are people who can help you. I’m hoping those next steps you take will be with me.
