In this video you will learn the basic principles surrounding perspective, in particular ‘one point’ perspective. What this means is there is a viewpoint which leads to one vanishing point. Crilley describes the understanding behind it in some detail. It would be difficult to draw for a beginner or even as a first attempt but the video is more to do with using the perspective lines and achieving correct proportions. The scene is a post apocalyptic world do could be good fun to draw. Reach for those pencils and have a go yourself.
This is the concluding part of the two part series of ‘painting a sunset’ by Wilson Bickford. In this short video tutorial Bickford finalises his painting by adding the reflections and navigates you through the other processes which will take you through to a finalised painting. He uses a two inch scenery brush to drag the land mass down the page to form his reflection. Each step is excellently narrated and easy to follow so grab your brush and canvas and become as good as Bickford in ten minutes.
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.
