Thank you!!! So appreciate these links, as I’m finding it hard to get to classes due to time scheduling. Thank you!

I don’t often watch videos because I get a numb rear sitting down so long at the computer. Also, I’d never do any painting, because videos are always so absorbing.
Can’t add much to the list myself, other than to say I do follow Karen Margulis’ pastel blog and have watched a few vids as well; I also like Richard Robinson’s work, even though I’m not doing so much in oils right now. (sigh) so much to see and so little time…

I just came across another video i am so excited about. So here I will share the link :

Part that got me excited is this guy who is an amazing portrait painter had the same issue I have come up against a quite a few times! Somewhere nearing the end putting the details in a portrait, I kind of make the person --not look like the person all of a sudden. And I have the choice of pitching the painting which I’ve often done. Starting over. Or trying to change it, and at that stage it’s very hard for me because I have so many layers of paint and hills of paint! So I try to sand it down and I make a mess and i throw out the painting in the end. Very frustrating.

But this guy who so accomplished, had the same issues! Very liberating for me to see that! And it makes me feel very understood, not alone, and hopeful for a brighter future! I know, I’m so silly.

So go check it out and I hope you enjoyed as much as I did ! :grin:

This is not instruction in the strict sense, but it is one of the most breathtaking videos I’ve seen online. Every painter I admire idolizes Sorolla.

I LOVED this one, thank you!

You’re welcome :slight_smile: The question he posed of “How literal do you want to be in your representation?” is one I think about a lot…

Hello from Australia
I have found Jennifer Marie’s videos very helpful. She shares her experiences, learning and insights each week whilst attending a painting atelier. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCuS3tkDFLe5PoeA7qpi6wzA/videos

I really like artist Marla Baggetta’s videos!
I love her style she usually starts a painting without any sketching! Simply just suggesting shapes of things then you can watch the painting evolve it’s truly fascinating!

Thanks for posting those Gary. Amazing realism with those first two!
He makes it look so easy.
Not that I could ever work like that, but cool to watch.

I didn’t see Michael James Smith in this list, so am adding him. Landscape artist - love this technique & many youTube videos. He starts with an acrylic rough in, then paints with oils. Wonderful work, and he EXPLAINS! Not just a “see what I can do” video artist. :slight_smile:
