We've posted two new videos on ArtistsNetwork.TV (http://www.ArtistsNetwork.TV) this week that we hope you will enjoy!

Learn to Paint Acrylics with Alwyn Crawshaw (http://artistsnetwork.tv/p-249-learn-to-paint-acrylics-with-alwyn-crawshaw.aspx)
Alwyn guides you through the materials you will need, then takes you through mixing colors, practicing brushstrokes for line and fill-in work, and working with value. Then follow along as Alwyn paints two gorgeous landscapes from start to finish to demonstrate techniques for applying the paint to get the effects you want. In this preview Alwyn finishes up this landscape using texture paste with his acrylics to give detail and dimension to the foreground grasses, moving them forward in the composition.

Drawing & Painting People with John Raynes: Capture the Nature of Hair and Skin, Part 3 (http://artistsnetwork.tv/p-248-drawing-painting-people-with-john-raynes-capture-the-nature-of-hair-and-skin-part-3.aspx)
In this video John paints shape by shape, changing the tones and temperatures as he moves across the face from shadow to highlight areas. In this video workshop he demonstrates light skin, tanned skin and dark skin, then shows how to paint light and dark hair to finish your portraits. In this preview John shows how light and shadow areas do not have to be different values. As long as they are different temperatures they will read correctly as dark and light.
