Jake domonstrates in this educational video tutorial how to turn watercolor theory against the grain and paint from dark to light. His painting style is bold and dynamic and his teaching style during the video is accommodating and easy to follow. He does not believe in building up a series of glazes and would much rather attack the painting with dark shades making sure he gets them right first time, every time. A very unusual approach but extremely unique and interesting nonetheless.
This is a cracking educational video designed to teach you the differences between various brushes for different paint mediums. The question is ‘hog hair or synthetic?’. Both have there qualities whether it be quality or budget but if you can afford it and your an oil’s painter then go hog hair.
Hog haired brushes are stiffer so are best for moving firmer paints, like oils, around the canvas. With your synthetic brushes you must give them the thumb test in the shop just to break the protective film on them which will allow you to test there spring and workability.
The ‘filbert’ brush is ideal for feathering and blending, so too is the round sable however, the flat type of brush is what’s needed for blocking in areas with paint. The brushes mentioned in this video are: Rosemary & Co Hog – Series 2045 sz 6, Rosemary & Co ivory filbert (perfect for oils) sz 6, Isabey – Isacryl 6572 sz 6 (Acrylics)
Enjoy the tutorial.

In this educational video tutorial Tim Withers shows you how to wedge the clay and then throw it onto the wheel. The video is quite raw but does exactly whats asked of it. A good one for the beginner to intermediate potter or ceramicist!
Another great informative and educational art video tutorial from professional artist Will Kemp where he explains to you how to set up an acrylic stay-wet palette. They come in two sizes, an A4 and an A3, always go for the A3 as you will always need more room to mix your acrylic paints.
You put the first sheet of paper down and saturate it with enough to be able to drain the excess into a glass (although you should retain a small amount for further natural soaking) before then applying your second sheet making sure all the corners are bedded tight into the corners of the wet palette tray. Once that’s done…voila! You have a stay-wet palette ready for action.
