  1. “When we paint a painting, we’re not only decorating a surface, we’re also orchestrating a visual experience.”
    Hear, hear! ๐Ÿ’›

  2. Thanks for the tips!!!! You have gold in your hands!โค๏ธ ๐Ÿงก ๐Ÿ’› ๐Ÿ’š ๐Ÿ’™ ๐Ÿ’œ

  3. Thank you for “destroying” parts of your painting to make it more interesting. Thank you for not painting Disney cartoons. And thank you for not painting hyper-realistic. And thank you thank you thank you for explaining why. I really appreciate all of these things!

  4. Wow. Amazing video and voice over topic. Because of that it’s worth it to have a like and my subscription. ๐Ÿ˜Š tnx for the video. Pls upload more. ๐Ÿ˜Š

  5. Isn’t safflower oil particularly long drying ? Does it allow you to work on consecutive days on the same area ? Thanks for the upload

  6. Hii, I love your videos and was just wondering if you maybe could do a video on how to find the right colour palette. It’s something I often struggle with and then end up using too much/little contrasts or the colours are just a little off. I’d really appreciate it ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks for all the videos you’ve made so far, always very helpful and well explained, really apprecialte that.

  7. you are right. too realistic is not art. it looks easy in the eye, but artwork shoudnt be a color copy of the object
