Someone new to my reblog series of posts, Chris Fornataro, the Paint Coach, on You Tube, presents a short oil painting tutorial/demo on creating dappled light 😊
This follows yesterday’s dappled shade reblog via Dianne Mize, and I may try and find another, even if only somewhat related reblog tomorrow.
Chris’ video is nicely straightforward and though I haven’t done much oils in awhile, like Dianne’s videos, I get ideas for my current watercolor and rare acrylic work, knowing oils aren’t gone from my future, just in hibernation right now, lol!
One of his ideas I especially paid attention to was his handling of paint on his brush to lay clean color over wet paint.
Besides, from my sporadic reading of John Singer Sargent’s watercolor work, though he employed the usual light to dark build up of colors (reverse of recommended application for oils) he didn’t hesitate to lay thick white gouache where he needed, or more probably, wanted 😊
I guess my meandering point is, working intermittently in 3 pigment mediums myself, I find videos like this not only helpful, but very inspiring.
Chris does talk fast, but clearly. And I used the pause & digital rewind options quite a bit.
But I do that a lot anyway ☺️
Hopefully you’ll give this young man’s tutorial a quick view, I found I liked it quite a bit 😊
Thanks so much everyone! Stay creative, curious and experimenting!
The arts may be the only avenue of activity we’re definitely not limited to just nine lives, lol! 💕
