    Easy for me to see blurred shapes as im legally blind. For me it's probably more of details that's challenging. Im following your videos and now i look at trees and clouds way differently when im outside.

    I draw as an hobby and ever since I got a sketchbook my art has gotten better, as I’m not thinking about finished projects. Very interesting video, I just got an oil painting set, I’ve always wanted to try oil

    Your eyes have a better “exposure latitude” than a camera meaning you can see detail in darks and lights that a sensor can’t. But many cameras have a “bracket” setting so it takes 3 photos at a time where one is under and one over exposed

    Thanks for the amazing video!

    Normally don’t like these sort of videos but your advice is good to know.

    Great list and advice. The idea about drawing is key. The drawing is the basis of the last layer of paint.

    Try the Mark Rothko method…paint 4 squares with 3 colours…frame it, and sell it for £84 million…I'll stick to painting kittens for my grandaughter.
    Love your work Coach.

    The violation of fat over lean is attested by countless cracking masterpieces. In fact, the only work that doesn't seem to crack much is Medieval egg tempera on wood.

    When you go back to your old paintings you shouldn't think you think "Oh, I Messed up that paint🎨🚫" or "I painted that tree🌳🚫." The way I see it it's a happy 😆 little accident.

    lmao tutorial on how which reference to copy from? pretty lame. the biggest thing oil painters get wrong is- to copy only. still life okay, but they sell their works and it's art theft on highest ranks because the photo's you take – if not stock images, are copyrighted as well. how about teaching NOT to copy and draw out of your mind using your knowledge? it's so odd that traditional painters always suck when it comes to creativity yet they claim to be the "true" artists while what they do is ability of copy

    I watch all your videos but I paint in watercolor, so not all the advice is applicable to me. But I absolutely learn something I can use every single video. Thanks for the way you explain things and all that you've taught me about composition. Love the tip about taking a different reference photo for sky and land!
