Unconventional Oil Techniques

Many of you have asked for an oil painting tutorial, and here it is: "Unconventional Oil Techniques."(Link to trailer)

Yes, I'm painting dinosaurs, but this video will focus less on the tyrannosaurs and more on the technique.

I’ll walk you through all the tools and materials and I’ll show how I make preliminary sketches in gouache to plan composition and color.

As I develop each painting, I’ll break away to demonstrate 11 different ways to apply the paint. To make it simple and clear, I’ll use just black and white, and I’ll keep everything in the shot, including the mixing palette and the medium cups, so there’s no mystery and you can see exactly what I’m doing.

If you’re new to painting in oils, you can try these black and white exercises along with me and get the feeling of basic techniques, like transparent glazing vs. opaque scumbling, oiling up to activate a dry surface, and using a palette knife for effects that you can’t get with a brush.

For more experienced painters who want to try out new approaches, you'll find a wealth of tips and tricks, such as pre-texturing with modeling paste, dabbing with waxed paper, and blending a gradation with a palette-knife. Learning these secrets will help you achieve an illusionistic paint surface, with fast drying times ideally suited to deadline work.

For ASMR fans, I’m also releasing an alternate version where I have removed the voiceover, so it’s just the soothing, immersive experience of pure painting, ideal for people who don’t speak English or who want the video to play in the background of their studio.
