Scott Naismith: Sketch And Alla Prima Oil Painting

Advanced, Intermediate, Oils, Painting | 13 Oct, 2012

With a preliminary sketch in his book, Naismith marks out and designs his drawing from which he wants to base his oils painting. This is an alla prima oil painting of the ‘Old Man Of Storr in Skye’ It is a time lapsed video but it is a real insight into seeing how Naismith really works into his paintings with passion and a keen eye for expressive colors. He uses a variety of tools including, brushes, spatulas and palette knives. Nice inspirational work.

    3. Basically, what is unique with my palette is the lack of tertiary colours (i.e. sap green, raw umber, venetian red etc.). The burnt umber is mostly for underpainting or drawing out at the beginning for it’s fast drying properties. I create strings of tertiaries by neutralizing primaries and secondaries.

    5. hi, can you tell me what the light blue is in your sky? i love it. cerulean blue with a little white?and yes, i’d love to see into your sketch book more often. I work with reference photos sometimes in color and sometimes just printed out in a gray scale but i don’t discipline myself with a sketch before the actual painting and maybe i should. Thanks for all of the great videos you post. The quality is amazing and easy to follow. What a joy!
