Wilson Bickford: Oils Lesson – Painting A Sunset Pt 2

Beginner, Intermediate, Oils, Painting | 08 Oct, 2012

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.

    1. Thanks for the basic video on construction of waves. I paint Plein Air in North County of San Diego, painting directly on the beach adds more challenge, but with the correct direction of those brush stokes, I believe that is the key! Also, keep your palette clean, is very important! Thank you!

    2. These techniques will work with Acrylics, too. Obviously, because of the faster drying time, some adjustments must be made. You’ll need to work somewhat faster, of couse, to blend the “wet” sky & water areas. And you’ll need to substitute white acrylic gesso for the white oil base medium. Most of everything else would be about the same approach.

    3. i have a question, what kind of papaers do you use? i used a “meduim texture” this is what’s written on it. the paint does not run smoothly on paper, and its impossible to draw any fine lines with the one am using, and the texture of the paper is very vissible:( paint is oil paint. crunching on paper thing did not work with me either:( what am i doing wrong???

    4. grr, i can’t get my acrylics to blend properly, and my paintings are the worst piles of crap i’ve ever seen anywhere…my 5 year old daughter produces better art in her kindergarten finger painting class. do i need to paint the canvas white before starting? i keep getting the white of the canvas showing through when i paint dark colors…i use Blick pre-stapled cotton duck studio canvases, it says they’re pre-primed, but i keep getting white dots under my dark colors…help..?!

    5. I’m not sure what’s causing your problem. When I paint with Acrylics, I use white gesso in a similar fashion to how I used the white oil basecoat in this video. If you’re not blending into a basecoat, it may be that your colors are too transparent, thus letting the canvas show through.
