Invest just three days in your art at Realism Live, and experience a dramatic improvement in the quality of your realistic paintings.

If the above promise excites you, I urge you to read this whole message, turn off your phone, and lock yourself in your studio!

You’re about to discover how to drastically improve your realistic paintings in a short amount of time. This will be the most exciting opportunity you’ve had all year.

Here’s why…

Getting better as a painter is hard, and if you’re reading this right now, maybe your painting skills, in some shape or form, are not where you want them to be.

I get it. You’ve put in a tremendous amount of effort, dealt with a ton of stress and angst, learned new things, practiced more, tried harder, but still feel like you’re not progressing.

Or maybe you’re on the right track and feeling pretty good about your paintings … till you look at the living masters and wonder how to walk up the steps to their level.

Whatever it is for you … let me ask this question.

What are you going to do about it?

You see, life is too short to be frustrated and feel as though your work isn’t the best it can be. I’m sure you’ve already tried everything.

But what if I could give you a shortcut and knock off a few wasted years?

Want to know how to make your paintings better?

Want to do realistic paintings that signal high quality and tremendous skill?

Want to feel proud and not the least bit embarrassed about showing your work, without excuses?

If you’ve tried everything to improve your painting skills, I want to tell you about a three-day event that will make a huge difference in your ability. There is no fluff, just direct, to-the-point teaching from people who have been painting their whole lives and have achieved status as the best realism painters in the world.

The key to the success of this event is immersion … concentrating on learning for several hours a day for three solid days.

Don’t think you can do that? You might just change your mind.

You see, life is filled with distractions … and in reality, most of us don’t even spend 30 hours a year learning, because our families and other responsibilities consume all our time.

Yet most of us easily kill 30 hours a week surfing Instagram and Facebook, watching TV, or wasting time in the studio trying to get what is in our heads onto the canvas.

But by shutting the doors for just three days, telling your family and office you’ll be away (though you’ll be at home), and studying under the best realism artists on earth, you can’t help but grow.

The reality is that we could all get better faster if we could find the right instructors and devote the time, but we are loaded up with distractions and responsibilities that get in our way.

Yet if you care deeply about your personal growth as a realist painter, you’ll find the time. Which is more important? Time on social media or time learning? Rather than looking at other people’s artwork on social media, you can be proudly posting your own.

You want to be the best you can be. No one wants to paint next to someone else and produce a weak painting. Instead, we want to “nail it” most of the time and get a high five for knocking a painting out of the park.

We’ve invented a safe, healthy way to grow as a painter, called Realism Live. This is an online event, carefully produced for optimum impact on your painting and featuring the world’s best realism painters to coach you.

You can watch it live, or if you have a date or time conflict, you can watch it later. And you can watch it over and over again, to revisit any areas you want to perfect.

And because we’re getting too much “COVID resistance” to attending an event in person, Realism Live will be this year’s substitute for our legendary Figurative Art Convention & Expo. It will have most of the world-class instructors slated for the FACE event, teaching you online. Whether you want to learn tight realism or loose realism.

AND … it’s teaching all kinds of subject matter under the banner of realism. Portraits, figures, florals and still life, and even landscape painting, hosted by Fine Art Connoisseur Editor Peter Trippi and Publisher Eric Rhoads.

We at Streamline, publishers of PleinAir Magazine and Fine Art Connoisseur, invented online art conferences, and we keep perfecting them. This will be an experience you’ll be passionate about.

You can go all in, stick with us every hour all day, or you can pace yourself for an easier day, watch what you want, and go back to watch the rest later … for up to a year (depending on the ticket package you grab). But you don’t want to miss out on all this wonderful learning.

Best of all, this will put you on the path to being a better painter, and it will help get you there faster. In small groups, you’ll meet painters and instructors from around the world. You’ll make new friends and find support in sharing and comparing notes. At the end of the day, we will paint together, and have an online cocktail party and chat.

A World-Class Faculty of “A-List” Realism Artists Teaching a Variety of Subjects

Realism is so diverse. You can do landscapes, portraits, figures, still life, architecture, florals, and so much more. There are many styles, subjects, and approaches, and we’ll cover them all. The goal is to give you a wide variety of lessons from top instructors.

Just last year, one of our guests told us, “I never would have picked that person to study under, but I was blown away. I never knew about her before.”

Look, my reputation is on the line, and I’m not going to tell you this can make you a better painter unless it actually can. But just in case you don’t believe me … look at what these people said about our recent online events.

Here’s how it works … you get up in the morning, get some stuff done … then you go to your computer and you tap on a link we’ll send you when you sign up.

You’ll open it up, create a password, and gain access to the whole event. You can watch it on your computer, your phone, your tablet, and even on your TV with the right hookup.

If you have a camera on your computer, you can participate in our breakout rooms and the cocktail party. Getting to know other artists is one of the best parts. You’ll feel truly connected at Realism Live.

Realism Live testimonial

This is your chance to experience a top-notch art training event for a fraction of the cost of registering and traveling to a live event.

I’m so convinced you’ll love it that if for some reason, you participate online the very first day and don’t feel that single day was worth the cost of the entire online convention, you can let us know by the end of that day and I’ll refund 100% of your money. I won’t even charge you for the day you watched. Sound fair?

Signing up is easy. You can either pick up the phone (561-655-8778) or simply tap on the big blue “Sign Up Now” button below. That will take you to a page where you can make your decision on which ticket you want and how long you want replays.

Then pull out your credit card or click on PayPal … put your info in, and hit the purchase button. Pretty simple, right?

You’ll get an e-mail from us confirming you’re registered, and before the conference, you’ll receive an e-mail with your link to the event.

But, Eric, there are plenty of seats and plenty of time to decide, right?

It’s true. You can sign up any time, up until the event. But if you sign up before October 15, your ticket price will be up to $500 lower than the full ticket price. Why wait? I give you my guarantee you’ll be 100% happy or you can get all of your money back.

Oh, and about seats. We cannot guarantee everyone will get a seat, even for online events. Without getting geeky, we pay for blocks of space which limits how many people we can accommodate. If we use up our block, we’ll have to cut off ticket sales.

If you want to get better at realistic painting or step up to higher and higher levels, it starts with giving yourself the gift of time to grow. Sign up today. Last time everyone waited until the final day before the price increase and it crashed our computers, and some people could not get in at that price. Best to do it right now. You have nothing to lose (no risk) and everything to gain.

New to realism painting? We offer an optional low-cost Beginner’s Day, teaching you all the important basics.
