March 24, 2018 at 11:39 pm Jesses Bradshaw Log in to Reply 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 March 24, 2018 at 11:57 pm Salma M Log in to Reply You had me at, " Grab a brew" XD Awesome stuff! thank you so much! ♥♥ March 25, 2018 at 12:22 am mymea01 Log in to Reply You are a truly amazing instructor. Just from this short video I learned so much about layering. I'm sold!

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.

March 25, 2018 at 2:48 am Daniel Gasser Log in to Reply Lovely tutorials, time to stop procrastinating and bring out the acrylics and a canvas.

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!!

How you can make acrylic look like like oil March 25, 2018 at 6:43 am Lee Hauser Log in to Reply 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!!

March 25, 2018 at 8:09 am Viktor Gattzén Log in to Reply 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? March 25, 2018 at 8:54 am Steve the Cat Log in to Reply 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! March 25, 2018 at 9:46 am Leave a Reply Cancel replyYou must be logged in to post a comment.
