Artists on German TV – Max Baccanello

Max Baccanello

click to watch the video

My new production introducing the London painter Max Baccanello will be shown on German tv in English with German voice overs. It is based on the Colour in Your Life series created by Graeme Stevenson whose UK presenter Ian Walton starts after a 2 minute prelude in German. If you find the English sound track to be too faint you may prefer the English original.

Max Baccanello has studied art in Wales and Italy and has exhibited widely in England and Wales winning several awards.

His paintings are mainly figurative works and portraits. The latter are often commissions inspired by the tradition of the old masters and contemporary artists.

The film shows Max painting a portrait starting with a sketch and demonstrating the painting process from the start to the finished picture.

How to paint Trees – Video No.320

In this time lapse speed painting video Victor Yushkevich paints a group of trees in about 26 minutes after a 40 second introduction. It is fascinating to see how he develops depth in his painting. He captures the atmosphere extremely well. Enjoy the painting process without words and listen to the background music.

The technique will work in oils and acrylics. You may come across one or two short adverts but the painting process will be well worth it. You can always jump forward if you haven´t got the time to watch all of the video or you can double the playback speed in the youtube settings.
