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.
This is a beautiful painting of a snowy field by oils artist Alan Kingwell. Throughout this short video you will see how he selects the appropriate colors to depict a cold winter’s morning and how heavy emphasis is put on the shading across the top of the snow. He uses a fan brush amongst others and also introduces a stipple brush to bring foliage and shrubbery to life. A great video to see how an oils painting is build up and structured from start to finish.
