River & trees oil painting landscape – Bill Inman

Learn how to paint a landscape in the Impressionists style watching this fast motion video from Bill Inman’s channel.


How to paint a Colorado River – online art classes for oil or acrylic painters – this fast motion video is condensed from the full 4 hour movie of the gallery painting created by Master Artist Bill Inman.

I start with abstract color shapes and patterns to quickly create realistic aspen and pine trees, river rocks, water and a sunny sky with clouds.

Learn how to use brush techniques and strong values and colors that result in a natural and believable mountain river painting.

This oil painting – Finding Gold in Estes Park – was completed in my studio and sold through the Broadmoor Galleries.

My wife Kristie and I saw this beautiful river while in Estes Park for an Oil Painters of America Show I was accepted into. We got there nice and early so we could hike around and enjoy many of the incredible trails throughout the area.

We lived in the mountains of Colorado for more than 12 years and still visit often to do some plein air alla prima painting.

This is not like the formula paintings Bob Ross created that so many artists around the world have come to love. My painting style is based on principles professional artists use like abstract color shapes, edge quality for greater realism, shadow and highlight, color theory or convincing color relationships and establishing correct values throughout the painting.

The full art video contains voice over instruction and shows every brushstroke of the painting process.
