MY PAINTING WAS GOING GREAT AND THEN SUDDENLY ALL MY SURFACES WERE TURNING OUT DULL AND BLOTCHY, THOUGHT IT WAS THAT I WASN'T PRIMING, BUT NO STILL HAPPENING, IT COULD BE TEXTURE AS U POINTED OUT, I THINNED THE PAINT BUT THAT WAS BECAUSE I THOUGHT I WAS TOO THICK, I'LL TRY AS YOU SUGGESTED, INBETWEEN, SEE IF THAT WORKS!

Instead of canvas I used 300 GSM paper with 25%cotton….I am a beginner and until now painting on those paper turned out good….should I switch to canvas?

The piece of advice that I really liked is to let it dry. It's so, so easy as a beginner to keep fiddling, trying to fix things, that we do indeed lose total sight of what we set out to do.

Louannie Flores 10/08/2021 - 13:41

Great tips…I may add; oil painting is expenssive; just discovered you can buy oil and mineral thinner from home depot; I spend half of what I spent on art supplies stores. Maybe the durability may be a little sacrificed but it works for begginers

Thank you. Great video. Particularly love the last tip…. 'one way of painting is going to feel natural and one way is going to feel unpleasant and annoying. Put the unpleasant aside. Use the process that feels more spontaneous and natural. You cannot force yourself out of your personality so don't try to be a painter you not supposed to be.'

I’ll be sharing this as its brilliant.. Thank You .. Every child should be taught art this way.. Be yourself.. Don’t be influenced by an art teacher who doesn’t respect your individuality.. Explore your own world, who inspires you and who you want to learn from.. I love to learn from J.M.W. Turner. He was brave and the world didn’t understand him yet he had fun and enjoyed his art.. Humanity needs to have fun and painting in oil is amazing.. I taught a class of 7 year olds to paint in oil.. It was Queen Elizabeth’s Jubilee.. The children all painted The Queen in Oil .. If a child can paint in oil so can anyone.. I taught them to paint, keeping their colours clean, using a pallet knife.. Using a very little medium and a different brush for every colour.. The results were pure colours with a child’s imagination.. Oil is the most flexible medium, which is why it’s so popular.. And yes … Take time.. Life is happier in the slower lane sometimes! ..

Good insights. Every beginner starts " alone" with an abundance of enthusiasm and unbounded ignorance. Good video.

You can paint like someone else, you can then change it into more of your own style. Tweak it. If you like an artist’s style, you can completely go for it. The more you paint, the more you will understand how to break down the process of other paintings and replicate the style. Nothing wrong with it at all. Then you can take all your favorite parts of their styles and create you own ☺️

Wow, it's like you sat me down to have a Dr. Phil session asking me what my frustrations are when it comes to painting, and then spilled this gem of advice after listening to me. I needed to hear this. I've never hit the sub button so fast for any content creator. Appreciate you.

Thank yourself so much for taking the time to do this video. It has made me more eager to get back to oul painting. I was doing the Bob Ross thing. After watching you I am sure I can learn to oil paint the way I would really like to paint. Might nor work. But I am surely going to give it one real hard try. Thanks again. A new fan. Jimmy

How can something like paint be so scarey 😂

Wow that was useful. I’m very grateful you made this video. Im almost 50 and I’ve never completed an oil painting. Recently our dear little 19 year old cat passed on . I’ve been staring at the nice picture I’ve drawn on the canvas for 2 weeks now. Have been gifted oil painting gear years ago and mi little Shelly has motivated me to try and go for it. She sat next to me at my drawing desk every day. You have made me relax about starting it, 🙏✨🙏✨🐾🐾✌️
