    For a while I've been trying to figure out how people get that blurry effect when they squint their eyes until I remembered that I wear glasses for myopia. Removing them had the same effect. TIL shortsightedness has its advantages!

    Can anyone explain this to me: why do so many artists say "squinting your eyes" instead of "blurring/defocusing your vision"?
    I don't understand the action of squinting, you just see less of the overall picture, as if you were suddenly watching a smeared western-movie cropped picture with your eyelashes in the way.

    what i learned from you is Value is god and we need to compare carefully…just like music we can start a song from any scale but we need to respect the note and timing's relationship…

    You're very generous with these demos – you could just provide a tease-taste, but you pack a hell of a lot in to something under ten minutes. and although I've been painting for many years (around 50 plus) it is extremely useful to be reminded of certain truths (eg, that detail won't save a failing painting when the basic structures are off-base).

    Hi Chris ! Your videos are so helpful! Do you know if there is a way to blur the photograph after you have taken it to see the values more clearly so that the details disappear. I’m not sure if that would be done in photoshop or if there might be an app for that? Thanks again for sharing your knowledge! You’re a wonderful and talented artist!

    Is this by any chance a cove near Fourini beach in Rhodes, Greece?

    I use this approach for anything I'm painting. Definitely works well!

    This was excellent, the painting is beautiful!

    Her hands and position are sublime, although the ear seemed slightly oversize – but people are different!

    Well done!

    I love your videos man!! Thank you for sharing your knowledge. What is the white bar you are using? Is it to steady your hand? Sorry, I’m very new to painting. Just picked it up a few weeks ago.

    I agree. Layers make the potrait more realistic.

    I have been painting for nearly 4 months, a relatively late discovery for me. Really Florent your videos are truly inspiring and of enormous benefit to me. Thank you so so much for your gentle encouragement and astounding knowledge of your craft. Sheridan

    What a beautiful portrait demonstration. I love the way you describe your process – somehow you make it all feel so achievable.

    Thank you for this video. I’m taking art lessons online for all types of mediums and they want me to focus on a section at a time but I can’t do that. I’m like you I have to focus on the whole and adjust as I go but, I thought I was overworking the piece. Also can you or anyone tell me a non toxic way to clean brushes? I get severe headaches even using odorless turpenoid in a well ventilated room?

    This tutorial would have been a lot more useful if we could see the model or reference photo you were starting with.
