Creating a studio painting

Posted on

My latest video shows the creative process behind the creation of “Farm Yard”. You’ll see my reference material, preliminary work, palette selection, monochromatic value block-in, color application, final details, even the signing of the painting. Hope you enjoy this. If you like this video, please share it with your friends. Thank you.

I’m pleased to announce the release of my latest teaching video and book. The video and accompanying book, shown here, along with my first video, “Limited Palette Landscape”, include everything I’ve taught in my workshops. You can now take my oil painting workshop right in the comfort of your home, and for a lot less money than physically being present. (Click image to learn more)
