Oil Painting Tips || Patreon Highlights

In this video I share some highlights from my Patreon painting tutorials.

REAL-TIME PAINTING VIDEOS, TUTORIALS and other helpful materials ▶

In my recent walk-through painting tutorial on Patreon I talk about:
Part 1: Surface preparation, concept sketching, taking a reference photo, color mixing, transferring the outlines.
Part 2: Painting a portrait, oil painting tips, common mistakes.
Part 3: Analyzing, adjusting things, glazing and basically doing all the finishing touches.

Materials used:
• Oil paints – “Nevskaya palitra”
Colors: Burnt Umber, Cadmium Yellow Pale, Ultramarine Blue, Cadmium Red and Titanium White.
For glazing I used Cadmium Red, Cadmium Yellow Pale and Cobalt Violet Deep.
• Primed 280gsm paper or linen canvas
• Acrylic primer “Sonnet”
• Paint thinner (odorless mineral spirits)
• Medium (stand linseed oil)
• Brushes – Detail brushes & Filbert synthetic brushes of different sizes
• Glass palette (homemade)
• Palette knife (from a local art-store)
• Paper towels (or tissues that I use to wipe the brushes)


  1. I love how you show very big and clear brushstrokes in the background of your paintings, and how you slightly overlap some of the background on the motive. I think it really reminds people that this was a actual painting, and not a photograf.

  2. Wow girl you definitely deserve a lot more support, these tutorials are really something and even though I don’t do art I’m truly intrigued. Subscribed! Wish I could contribute to Patreon but I’m dependant on others myself so hopefully in the future.

  3. You are an inspiration and you really inspiring me to learn more about how painting the skin of a person(sorry for my English, I’m Colombian so yeah)

  4. Wow really amazing illustration! I love how you painting this especially with the photorealistic finish! Really astonishing work!
