    What do you use to pre-tone your canvas.

    Velasquez palette: white, red, brown, black, yellow. Nothing else.

    Velasquez would have had access mostly to ochres, black and lead white. Blue was available as lapis lazuli but was too expensive for most artists. You can see his palette in Las Meninas. I'm not sure if vermillion was around during his time.

    Hello my friend! Thanks for so generously sharing your portrait painting journey. The mystery article of clothing is called, I believe, a "collar". Cheers!

    Great video! What do you recommend concerning varnishing paintings? I'm always so afraid to try it after I complete a painting…

    This instructional video as well as last Wed. Alla Prima style have been 2 of your best. I notice during the drawing stage you are not creating such a "cartoon" shaded block in….and rather than focusing on the the darks in the beginning of the add color stage you are focusing on the light and middle values. I really like this approach. …and thank you for the excellent description of your pallette on the Diego study. The precise description as well as the very clear explaination of Flake White is an help enormous help. I will be trying out the additional color railes (?) in my next attempt. I am sure using the big wooden pallette is the best way to paint, but honestely not my favorite on the video screen….it was so easy to watch your color selections when the pallette was on glass next to the painting…..so if you choose to continue to use the wooden pallette please continue with the oral description of color choice from the pallette for those of us who still have difficulity with flesh tones…..and continue to show the pallette whenever possible…..ps…be sure to mention your Patreon account because I never heard of such a thing until my son told me about Patreon accounts by various artists!

    also, I got a palette like yours and I love that too! I always painted from a table palette and I find I love to hold the palette, I can stand back and move forward, and get the paint mixes closer to the painting.

    I think its called a ruff. Its a type of fancy collar. And I am doing a figure drawing, copying a pose from Simbal anatomy for artists. Lots of good dancers posing in it, dramatically lit. I LOVE that book.

    I am doing this! Master studies are my favorites! Thank you Yupari!

    Thanks Yupari really loving the master studies , especially Diego Velazquez. I completed several cropped versions so far (portraits of Pope Innocent X , a man from Los Borrachos and Man with a goatee) Diego’s collar I believe was a version of a Ruff , called a flat Ruff.
