You Can Draw or Paint Any Subject With Ease - Even If You Have Never Drawn or Painted Before!

Long-lost Manuscript Resurfaces With Over 190 Pages on Drawing, Sketching, Oil & Watercolor Painting and Different Modes of Seeing -  Revealing All The Secrets of a True Art Master!

Most people who have never painted before believe painting and drawing is a very difficult skill to master - and that it's even more difficult if you believe you have "zero talent". 

There's no doubt, learning to paint and draw can be challenging for any artist.  Too often the study of art is dull and boring, and self-study books are confusing and lacking in good information.  Frankly, the most common complaint amongst art students is study books containing a minimum of useful information offered at the maximum price - much better for ornament than for use!

The big problem is that most books on the subject are filled with boring description after description, and not enough nitty-gritty, nuts and bolts information with clear illustrations and drawings.

Sound at all familiar?

Recently a manuscript by highly acclaimed artist Alfred Daniels, has been re-discovered.  Daniel's work is the secret resource many top artists used to perfect their drawing and painting with oils and watercolors.

This newly released work called “Painting and Drawing Secrets” by Alfred Daniels is the quickest and easiest way to learn painting and drawing. Inside this standout work you’ll get nearly 60 illustration and plates, as well as 197 pages jam-packed with nitty-gritty information, tips and techniques to get you drawing and painting in no time.  In fact, absolutely everything any artist would need.
