  1. Hi Daria, I absolutely love your paintings you have inspired me so much as a artist. I too love using oil paints of my pieces. I have learnt so much from you videos and I hope you know that I appreciate the time you take to create these videos. Thank you ❤️

  2. спасибо за твое творчество, думаю благодоря тебе я купила все для рисования и начала развиваться в этом.

  3. Hey can you do a video about blending oil colours … for me it is very hard to blend the colour.
    And i have problems with the first sketch of Portraits … do you have any tips?

  4. How long does a typical portrait take to complete. I know that because you’re using oils, you need to let them dry in between layers. But do you have an estimation?

  5. Hi, i don’t have burnt umber, i have raw Umber, so can i also use raw umber in place of the burnt umber for mixing skin tones?
