mini-vacation in San Francisco, but this week we continue on the topic of the human head with a focus on facial features and proportions by Dan Beardshaw.
Lisa Clough takes us through seven "mistakes" that artists make with coloured pencils. What I like about this video, and Lisa's approach, is that she notes that mistake is only one when you're attempting to get a particular result and do not because of technique. If you like the result, then it's not a mistake.
Deb Watson takes us through the mixing of blacks in watercolour. Of course, you can buy blacks, and I do have some on my palettes, but these are often used for particular purposes rather than as a black in the painting. Why? They tend to be dull and shallow, which is often not what you want.
Florent Farges takes us through some of the essential basics of oil painting, why you should try it, why it is safer than you think and how to handle the paints, thinners, and mediums.
