The Stockman

The Stockman – Oil Painting Techniques with Andrew Tischler


In this 2 hr video presentation, Andrew Tischler shows you his methodology for how to create an engaging composition rich with narrative and light.

The Stockman started with just a simple idea: the relationship between man and beast. Andrew wanted to create a story around a central figure; who was striving to accomplish something that wasn’t on the Horses agenda.

In order for this project to work, Andrew painstakingly brought together many aspects to create the image. With everything set up, from the model, to the landscape to the horse, the possibilities were endless. This presentation is all about how he captured the idea from his initial inspiration.

Painting is a rich field of possibilities. What Andrew creates in this tutorial is a composition stemming from just an idea, and taking you through the whole process, a finished painting with dynamic colour and drama.

This painting tutorial goes into extensive detail on brush techniques and colour mixing, as well as reference collection and setting up the project for a successful outcome.

“I just love sharing what I have gathered over my 13 years experience as a painter. I am committed and dedicated to helping you grow as an artist.”

Andrew gives his trade secrets in this presentation and many techniques he has gathered over the last 13 years of being a professional artist.
