Well I absolutely love this video. The style of watercolor is very confident as Andersson at times uses small detailing and a steady hand to control his brush. This teamed with the fact that his paper has been fully saturated creates an extremely wet watercolor painting. Now surely this is an indicator for just how versatile watercolor is. A cracking little soundtrack very appropriate to the video lingers in the background.
Oils painter Michael Pintar shows us in this tutorial how to paint snowy trees on canvas. He runs through the procedure which he adops which begins with using blocking large areas with color to establish a foundation to work upon. The oil paints have been thinned down using turpentine and allows an easier application. He uses a variety of brushes throughout and has condensed a four hour painting on 16×20 canvas into this nice little 13 minute video. Its interesting to note how he jumps around the page with his paint brush to create an even progression all the way through.
Episode 10 in this series teaches the viewer and aspiring artist how they an expect to achieve realistic puddles using only a few tools and a keen eye for color. This is a very detailed and concise video and I would highly recommend it for its step by step approach, final outcome and detailed narrative from start to finish. Grab your kit and and just have a dabble with it.
