    I’ve always had a passion for the arts and am a very good artist when it comes to pencil but I’m having the hardest time transitioning to paint, particularly being able to get a nice thick coat and even color out of my paint without the canvas eating a whole tube of paint. Any tips on diluting paint to get a thick even paint color without making it runny and watery

    You are a truly amazing instructor. Just from this short video I learned so much about layering. I'm sold!

    Dude.  30% rule!  You are using too much water, starting with your under painting.  The under layers are going to flake off or come off when you paint over them.  Try using medium instead of water if you want your paint this thin.  Good luck.

    Awesome video. I am just getting into painting (always used pencils) so it helps a lot. I was wondering what is the board on the left that you do the mixing on?? Is it just a normal canvas? Also, what is the detail on that brush you are using (brand, size, etc..) Thanks again!!

    I so enjoyed this video. I copied what you were doing and am just thrilled with how my apple and shading turned out. It's nowhere near as professional as yours, but much better than I could have possibly done w/o this video. And now to do it again as to get more practice and confidence. Thanks!!

    I have Burnt Umber, Burnt Sienna, and some very old Raw Sienna on hand, but no Raw Umber…can I substitute one of the others? Thanks!

    Are you using two different tones for the background? First cadmium yellow and let that dry and then another layer of yellow ochre?.. Or am I getting that part wrong?

    Being self taught can be a pain at times but videos like this definitely help. Glad I already knew to keep a brew on hand, though.

    Excellent vid!
