    Thank you for the video- the last method is definitely what most of the advance artists do- maybe one day, I will get there😊

    Yes I like to preserve the white during the entire painting – and that’s why I have paintings that are blank white canvases

    Before I watched this video, I always used the last technique by default…you introduced me new techniques that I don’t think I’ll use but good to know.

    I usually use ACRYLIC and I draw with my brush on toned or plain white canvas. The last option you used, except with ACRYLIC. But, I have done a few oils and still do the last option. I was watching this because I dont use oil much and I recently bought some nice linen boards and wanted to get a refresher before I start! Thank you so much for this video!🎨🖌

    Just UGH!!!! There has to be some level of natural talent to paint. I know that everything takes practice and patience, but…….. Seriously, you're putting color on a background! Abstract art sucks, and shouldn't be legal, but that's all I ever end up with!!!! Just UGH….

    Very good. Makes one think about things to do and how to do it in advance. A beginner here.

    Got to have room to change lanes if you get stuck. Having multiple ways to get where you’re going. Awesome video. Might do something similar of my channel.
