    Beautiful but not to the required level, you need a lot of practice on the clouds

    It seems that going dark to light really is the best practice… you really don’t muddy your colors

    painting on wet paint is like painting on the same layer, waiting for that paint to dry is like waiting for a new layer to load.

    wet paint clouds are misty, whispy, and distant.

    you can start with the farthest clouds and then wait for the paint to dry or have lineart for the clouds before painting the sky so that you can both distinct and distant clouds on the same layer.

    love your videos! They are helping me so much. I think you could even go with a larger brush on some of these.

    You are a great painter,but this video is so confusing what was the point. I didn’t get it,it was just patches of paint on a canvas.

    I love this thank you. When you said we don't need fat over lean for things like this, I don't know what the things like this are 😕 Could you elaborate, please?
    Thank you 🙏

    for me the first one look more realistics, the other clouds looks more define.

    How does this advice line up with your recent advice to get the darkest values down first, then add in / layer the lighter values on top?

    I am confused , i have learned that you can't mix warm en cool colors together otherwise you get a neutral color instead of it going forward / backward and than here i see you mixing ultramarine and phatalo blue 🤔

    It was nice at the end there to see you just enjoy painting, improving the clouds and not instructing as much. Just watching you made it a bit more relatable for me.

    When you put the white highlighting over the clouds it really brought the painting out. Thats awesome

    Well made brushes or cheap ones that fall apart during every use isn't important… what matters is how long the brush is.

    Wow, i love that a little bit surrealist portrait painting…A bit photo realist, but mixed with some kind of loose decorative poster surrealism….Very charming and beautiful! What's that technic name?

    What puts me off oils is the brush cleaning part, though also not having much space the long drying time is also offputting… but watching this makes me itch to try regardless!

    I love the way you go about things. I get inspired as much by listening to what you have to say, as by watching what you’re painting.

    Hey 🙂 How do you save your colors when you use a paper / glass palet, for an artwork you execute in several days? I am sorry if you have already answered in an other video I have not seen yet !

    i really struggle with proportions. my college professor told me to work smarter, not harder. i just hope that i would stop feeling guilty about using things to make it easier.
