    1. In your landscapes there is a great variety of skies which are different from each other and I think they are very interesting and well made –but– how long can you paint only skies , why dont you try painting s/ing else, you are very talented- dealing with other pictures wil be somewhat of a challenge

    2. I use a variety of mediums. Many of these will have some sort of fast drying propery like siccative or dammar. Dammar is good with a project like this as it prepares the old painting’s surface for application of new layers without ‘beading’. I don’t use a lot of turps. I will soon release another glazing video which might interest you so stay tuned.

    3. I also paint portraiture, abstract, still life etc. My recent work has concentrated on skies through my interest in creating atmospheric depictions of colour through contrasts of opacity and transparency in application. As my work now becomes more abstract in nature, the fact that they depict skies is only a starting point for abstraction. To truly master a subject you must emerse yourself in it and study it as Monet did with his waterlillies.

    4. Hi Knucklez, this is a time lapse demo. It sounds like you are maybe looking for tuition. For that I have provided many free tuitional videos on my channel which show the paintings being done in real time. The time lapse is better for the youtube format as paintings can take weeks/months to complete.

    6. This may be a silly question… But i’m twelve and i am about to do my first ever oil painting but what did you wipe on the painting at the start before you painted and do you always have to use it? also any vital tips for a beginner? i watched your videos but i dont want to mess up by missing a vital piece of information. Thanks you’re awesome!

    7. why would you tell him to move onto painting something else? the masters of their craft stick with one style for many, many years before they move on, and that’s if they move on. if you’d like to see different paintings of different things perhaps you should paint them and post the videos for others to see! cheers!
