Re: An interesting demo....

very very nice. My jaw dropped when he plopped down all that PAC on the right side. I was wondering where he was going with that. PHEW! It all worked out.

The woman with the camera would have driven me batty. She probably has prints of that painting now in her living room.

Re: An interesting demo....

- he uses brushes of all sizes!
- is he using paper as a palette?
- he tore pieces off the paper his painting on as painting aids!!
- uses toilet paper to blot
- has not brushed his hair in quite a while, jeje
- interesting use of masking-tape for precision blotting

Amazing work! it is very interesting that in close up it does not look
very good, but when appreciating it from far back, it looks really nice!!

Thanks for sharing, very interesting!

Re: An interesting demo....

The first video was amazing....he spent ALL that time on the tower, and then plopped all that paint down....but, yes, he made it all work out! I think he uses a white plastic sheeting of some sort as a palette...but he DOES paper to paint with...he creates all those fine lines with a painted edge of paper, and then softens them, and YES, creating lines and lifting paint with tape was quite something!

AH, but did you see his second video....He used two brushes in one hand to lay down his base colors...water in one, paint in the other, or both with paint? I spent the whole darn video wondering was he going to fix that cockamaney tea pot! Yep, and that was a surprise! As was the glass, he actually made clear glass by the end of the video...as was the whole dang video: surprising...perfect wet in wet technique. I think he actually used a small bottle scrubber as a brush at one point..and toilet paper wrapped around a brush handle to life some lines! A painter that knows what he wants to portray in a still life and knows how to use huge amounts of paint and copious amounts of water to arrive at what he "sees" in his mind! Thank you for sharing!

Re: An interesting demo....

Very interesting! I liked his BIG palette. It looked like just a big sheet of white plastic or something. It was funny how he would rip pieces of paper off the margin of his painting to make his hard-edge tools.

Re: An interesting demo....

Very cool video.

I did catch the version that has the ending where the other artists, after looking at his painting, proceed to gnash their teeth and tear out their hair in envy, before throwing their paintings over the side of the building.

Just kidding. I couldn't resist.

Seriously this is nice work. Very impressionist.
