Today's the day! It's taken the last 3 months but it's done. Man I love finishing projects.

Here it is! www.masteringpaint.com

This one is a collaboration between myself and British artist Barry John Raybould who runs the online painting course at the Virtual Art Academy. Well, it says it all in the video so I don't really need to, but I do hope you like it, as much as I hate getting in front of the camera (have you ever tried to say something sensible and 'natural' with a camera pointed at you? - crazy difficult, but I digress.) Let me know what you think, oh and there are some new free painting videos to sign up for there too. Enjoy.

 

I'm off to plant our vege garden.

Presentation is great Richard so don't worry about that.  This is interesting too and I am learning loads from your videos.  So much to learn and so many beautiful places to paint!

I really like seeing a photo of the scene you are painting, it really shows how you use your artistic talents. Gloria

Thanks Monique, once I've laid in the sketch (and sometimes a thin colour wash) I don't use turps in the painting after that, only painting medium. You'll see that in this new video too. Different thicknesses of paint allow for different effects, so I can't say 'always apply lights this thick' or 'never apply darks this thin' because it might not suit the effect you wish to achieve in a particular painting. Paint handling is one of those things which is learned by feel and many painting miles under the brush. I'm always learning more about it myself and try to push myself in every new painting to not just make an accurate(ish) image of my subject, but to do it with flare!

Sounds good but my main porblem is do you cover how to handle the oil paint itself? it is one of my major obstacle never knowing if I should use turpentine on its own or use a medium - and which composition? when I have decided of the hue and tone like I have learned on your previous dvd I always seem to loose the previous marks made on the canvas...Please a bit of help on this would be welcome.

By the way do not worry you look cute ! on your DVD and I am not flattering in order to get a response...Monique
