    Great. Really enjoyed it. Glasses – perspective off just a little. You did great in just an hour and a half.

    Wonderful. You're amazing! Quick question: do you know how the Renaissance artists like Caravaggio or Da Vinci got such smooth, clean clear buttery skin tones with very little brushwork showing in the face and skin? I'm always curious about this.

    You are so right! It’s just paint, we can move it around. I needed this.
    I love this portrait, as well.

    This technique is of a true artist, and your clarity of process is nice to learn from as slow enough to follow without feeling panic or rushed. I only learned similar technique by watching my friend but couldn't be there steady. So, this is great that I found you to refresh. Lovely work too. Thanks so much.

    Can you say colour or paint instead of value

    What great showing and telling. You're a gifted teacher because you speak as though you always have the viewer in mind, and don't want to waste the viewer's time. That said, you snuck a key element in there very surreptitiously. At 55:55, as you bring your brush up for making the next marks, suddenly there are highlights next to the pupil! As you well know, this tiniest of detail is among the most critical for bringing the entire portrait to life. It's the sparkle in the eye that creates a compelling emotion in many cases. But this is a superb video and worth every minute because you are so articulate in explaining your thought processes. Just superb. Thank you for doing this.

    Dear Michael, I am following your tutorials and find them fantastic. I have a question: If the painting is bigger, do you use different brushes from these?
