    These could be really useful without that unrelenting music in the background. At least give us the option to turn it off.

    Really helpful tips, have really been appreciating and soaking up a lot from your videos man. Thanks for putting the time and effort into spreading the knowledge and experiential wisdom, Chris.

    One question coming off this vid—what would you recommend if someone was interested in gaining quick reps for wet on wet abstract expressionism type work? Is this possible to do in one sitting without having to first plan things out/do some thin layers underneath? Better suited for acrylics given their dry time?

  • i eat a lot

    Hey so i just got everything it’s on its way, and i just wanted to clarify this since I’m watching non stop tutorials. My plan is obviously after liquid white to prep the canvas, go with oil+gamsol for the first layer, oil and linseed oil , then straight oil (obvios variance in between etc). Just want to make sure that when i start painting i make as little mistakes as possible lol thanks for your videos man!

    Ok so if you happen to put too thick of paint on the canvas, ans you try and out more on ans it what was underneath just comes off what do you do

    Isn't more convenient to leave spaces and block in forms to save time and paint? Like one area is assumed to be blue, other is orange etc…

    So oil painting is all about painting over other paint? Wow this was dumb. I thought, from the title, there was something deeper going on here. Like oil paint is all about the enjoyment of creating beauty and the satisfaction, etc, etc. Check Please!

    Hi! I want to ask a question, but it may take some time to read it in video, so I'll be very-very happy if you сould answer me here 😳. Sorry if I did a mistake, because English isn't my native language, but i tried hard to explain the situation correctly:

    The artists I know say that they never feel the difficulty, but only the pleasure of painting(they're not very famous, not very experienced and wasnt learning in art schools; theyre painting in naive style, but its still a huge work that brings them money).

    When I paint with oils(more realistically), I always feel like I’m pushing my limits. It's almost physically difficult, I feel like my brain is boiling. And my work is almost always divided into stages:

    1) shit

    2) shit

    3) I thought it couldn't be worse, but here we are

    4) maybe all my previous 'wins' was just a randomness?
    5) some magic happens at the 90% of process

    6) perfection, it must have been drawn by the spirit of Leonardo da Vinci, which had taken the control over my body when I was at that 90%

    Maybe I'm doing something wrong? I don’t feel that the process of painting is getting easier, I work hard and it rarely gives me pleasure (only at the end). I love the result and I feel really satisfied by the work I did, but where is the pleasure and lack of difficulties that everyone is talking about?
    Ty so much for attention!

    Man, I had to figure out the hard way to do that with acrylic. Just paint a different part for ten minutes, and then come back. Too much water.

    I was told to use some siccative in my paintings but I'm not really convinced, any thought on that? 🤔 Thank you for your really helpful videos! ☺👍

    How often should I change my gamsol/turp? I have two jars with wire racks that I cycle through letting one jar settle and then just use the “settled” jar, been painting with oils for four months and have never changed the turp.

    I might have a different question. How do you approach painting big areas (with no detail) or backgrounds and such? I block it in and then don't know what to do with it. Don't know how to create a texture or color change that would feel natural (especially in portrait painting).
