How to paint an Alpine Lake – Video No.339

In this time lapse speed painting video Victor Yushkevich paints an Alpine lake in about 25 minutes after a short introduction. He has a great way of positioning lights and darks to create an atmosphere. All his works speak of his skills in continuing the tradition of the old masters. 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.

Hope you like my choice of the day.

My new production introducing the British artist David Woodford has been shown on German tv in English with German subtitles several times a day. It is based on the Colour in Your Life series created by Graeme Stevenson whose show starts after a 2 minute prelude in German.

David´s art training included five years of practical studies at Worthing and Leeds. Then after five years of teaching he became a mature student at the Royal Academy Schools, London.

Since 1968 David Woodford has been painting the beauty of Wales in oils available via his website.

The film shows David painting a landscape demonstrating the process from start to finish.

Moated Manor House

visitor´s car park 2016

After a two year break through Covid I have signed up for a show at a castle which I attended successfully a couple of times before. This is a group exhibition at Opherdicke House in Germany. It is situated close to Holzwickede the twin town of Weymouth in England. Last time I went we had lots of visitors as it is near several major cities.

As in the past some 40 artists will be displaying their works created in different techniques on various subjects. Personally I shall be concentrating on still lifes and  landscape paintings also taking my easel to give demonstrations.

The moated castle is more like a manor house with a moat. It overlooks the valley of the river Ruhr and is popular with local people at weekends.
