    There's no toxic waste disposal for households in my country, I think I'll have to ask someone at the art stores what I should do with everything before i start, thanks for this video

    This is indeed GOLD information! I'll paint again with my oils, I fee now so bad for abandoning them for so long. I adore oils, I just do not have to paint in my room again with close windows 😀

    A suggestion: The final varnish should be a removable varnish… Then in the future the owner has the option to remove the top varnish and then re-varnish.

    Just an off hand comment about the Turner painting at 58:29 … A lot of people think that he exaggerated the sky colors in this and other paintings of the time, but this was after the Mount Tambora volcanic eruption of 1815 and sky's looked like this for periods of time. It is considered the largest eruption in recorded human history, led to extremely cold temperatures (The Year Without a Summer) and additionally led Mary Shelly to write the story of Frankenstein. ( Being stuck indoors all summer because the weather was so depressing and inhospitable) and her friend and contemporary, Lord Byron, wrote the poem "Darkness".

    I remember one time my terpenoid leaked and I didn't know until two days later. I was wondering why my room smelled weird

    While I knew a lot of the info addressed in this video, it was still great to watch, but I wish I could have been a part of the discussion. I kept responding to all the questions. Really good video. I can't tell you how much research I did to learn all the things you addressed in this one video. Amazing.

    This is the best gift I could have received this holiday season! Oil painting has always been so interesting to me but I’ve never known where to start!

    Painting with oils is just a magical experience that no other medium can give.

    LAyer after layer. That’s the beauty of painting you can always add more depth.

    I work with acrylic and don’t get oils. You’ve got to stop and let dry a lot.

    How many times do you stop and let it dry.

    I feel bi-polar or something. I’m watching football on tv and watching the painting on my iPad at the same time. ?
