    Excellent. Each tip is valuable. I hardly put any paint on my palette. I dont know what stops me. It troubles me still I continue to do ot. My next practice shall be to squeeze out more colour

    Like your tips. Some of these I need to revisit! Many of us who know these things often "forget" and regress… always with the basics…

    I recently was told that I need to forget about values, and begin using more color, to worry about tinting last- lay in the color, then adjust. A fool proof way to block in the huge zones of color- more of an exercise than a good technique… but worth doing a couple of times to break other habits about using paint.

    One of the weird things about that is that I had another issue before- putting color into a scene which didn't need to be there- seeing more values than were good for the overall painting- but yes, seeing the underlying value (root pigment) for things is hugely valuable- pun intended.

    Thanks paint coach, I've been watching your channel for quite some time, and have bought a set of water mixable oil paint to give oil painting a go. Thanks for the helpful advice and for demystifying oil painting.

    Good tips. Could I add tip number 11. Keep your painting perpendicular to you. To avoid distortion.

    Rule no 5, does it mean raw umber won't give you vibrant shadow? I know how black should be avoided, apart from Raw umber and mixture of 2 complimetarys what other means of getting shadows can we use ?

    I’m enjoying your utube art demonstration, but just wondering can I use acrylics instead of oil paint?
