This oil painting video is for all skill levels from absolute beginners to experienced artists. This is a step-by-step demonstration from start to finish as I show you the simple, fun shortcuts that I have been teaching for years in my sold-out workshops for other artists.
I’ll show you my personal shortcuts that will help you avoid common mistakes and create beautiful paintings on your very first try. You’ll see photos of actual scenes and examples of how I interpret these effects in paintings.
You’ll watch me go from a blank canvas step-by-step to the finished painting. I’ll start by showing you the colors on my palette. Along the way you’ll see me use a variety of my brush techniques that you can easily use in your own paintings. You’ll even see how I manipulate the paint with my fingers at times.
I’ll show you how I begin to paint a group of tree with bare branches, what I do next and why, how to develop the painting fully, adjust edge treatments and more. I’ll even show you when, where, why and how I add the final sparkle to the painting.
These are all things you can use right away in your own paintings, no matter what your level of skill.
