    3. Hey Scott!interesting videos!Do you use as many brushes as colors?I normally keep the same brush if i am using a darker color than the previous one but I dont know what is the right way to do..i also try to use 2 or 3 different turpentin bottle (when I am in the 1st or 2d layer) so I dont mix the white color with the brown for ex. I use white to cover some corrections at the sketch phase.could u tell me how to do it? or indicate me an article or video I could look that says about that?thx

    4. Use the brush most appropriate to the mark you want to make, it’s as simple as that. If you want to make many varied marks, use many brushes. You can at times achieve a variety of marks with a single brush, but I would never endorse brush selection based on what value your next colour will be. To erase initial oil sketch marks on a dry ground, I would recommend a rag dipped in turps instead of white oil paint. Check my ‘mediums’ tutorial for further advice on this topic.

    6. Hi Scott,about the sketch, u know what happened? with my next layer, all the white surfaces I put here and there made the next layer appear glossy here and there and where I didnt use this white correction it stayed matt. I think it is because after stretching the canvas, I didnt use this animal glue to prime the canvas with gesso. ACtually I use normal wall paint to prime but it let the undercoat pretty matt. Whould I sand a little the glossy parts (where underneath white corrections has been)?

    8. I like how you can hear the fast brush strokes when you are painting where as other speed painting videos you don’t hear anything but usually some stupid techno music. lol Also I like the way you communicated how you work your edges. I hope I can go back over mine and get my edges so it doesn’t look like a bad copy and paste photoshop image. lol
