Desserts, Peanut Butter & Jelly Painting Video Instruction

Desserts, Peanut Buttler & Jelly Sandwich

Within this instructional oil painting video Professor Groat teaches students how to paint five different mouth-watering, sugar-filled desserts, including a classic pbj sandwich, half-moon and chocolate chip cookies, apple pie and a French cruller donuts.

Through the years this has been one of Hall’s most popular oil painting DVDs, and is the only one available on the market that is completely devoted to this subject. He is well-known internationally for his evocative dessert paintings, which are included in hundreds of private art collections.

Learn how to develop dynamic compositions, suggest characteristic dessert foundation forms through simple undertones, paint seductive textures, luminous colors and an appealing sense of light.  Learn how to properly mix warm and cool colors on the pallet, and then use these contrasting tones and values to indicate depth and three-dimensional form.

Similar to many of Hall’s instructional videos, there’s an emphasis placed on breaking down the creative process of each one of these dessert paintings into clear, easily understandable stages. The beginning art student is able to see firsthand each painting gradually progress step-by-step.

People who have never painted before are often surprised to learn how paintings look very abstract and simplified in the very beginning stages, and do not actually appear realistic until the the final details and accents.
