    2. @thyrael41 you need to get solvents that break down oil based materials. for most of the painting, i use turpeniod. to clean the brushes real well, ill use a brush cleaner i get from home depot. it even takes off dried paint and reconditions the brushes.

    4. Your work is delightful sir, I enjoy my painting but so much has changed over the years with regards to materials and technology.Are you using a product called ” liquid white ” for your base ? are you using Gesso and if so do you dilute the Gesso and if you dilute what proportions would you use ?Thanks.

    6. @jeanmunn if im doing a painting like bob ross or william alexander i will use “magic white” a.k.a. “liquid white” to make your own, mix titanium white with some kind of oil like refined linseed or safflower oil until its about 1/2 to 3/4 its normal consistancy. you want a mix that is opaque, but has the consistancy of mayonase. gesso i will use before i do anything on the canvas. i will usually thin it out just a touch so it goes on easier. all gesso is fully dried before i start anything.

    8. @thyrael41 baby oil , yes thats right , baby oil ! I scrape the unwanted paint from my pallete and then poor a little bit of baby oil on it , then wipe with a paper towel . It is also very safe to use compared to thinners . You can also clean your brushes with it , but I recomend you use a solvent then baby oil as a conditioner . You want to make sure you remove all baby oil before painting again , baby oil can retard the paint and keep it from drying completely .

    11. @TheDarremac baby oils main ingredient is mineral oil usually with fragrance. so it makes sense that it works for paint removal and conditioning. but you may be buying too little for too much. i think a gallon of mineral oil at a home improvement store is around the same price as a bottle of baby oil.

    15. @maulerdeathmaster its up to you. you should experiment and see which ones you like the most. each persons style of painting can determine which paints work best for them. if youre starting to learn how to paint, i would get some decent student colors… I suggest “dick blick” brand for student colors.

    17. Thank You! I am just starting out with oils and you are the first that I have found to explain the mysterious “liquid white” that all of the artists use in their wet into wet painting videos. I like your style of teaching, direct and to the point, not a bunch of fancy terms that are not necessary. I am enjoying watching your videos and will let you know how things turn out for me. I believe I will attempt this painting. I have a brush question though. The blending brushes, what type are they?

    18. thin paint sticks to thick paint…thin it and lay it on top of the other paint. also, mud happens when you are mixing red, blue, yellow together too much. two colors by themsleves will not make mud unless they are secondary colors like orange, green, purple.

    19. Thank you. I’m just watching part 7 of this lesson series. Thoroughly enjoying it. I believe I will be going shopping later today to mix myself some liquid white. One thing though, you need to switch from Home Depot to Lowe’s for your paint supplies. Lowe’s customer service is much better since I am a Lowe’s employee. LOL! just teasing you. I do however, go right to the “oops” rack in the paint department when I’m shopping at Lowe’s. Have found some really great colors for very little $ 🙂
