How to use Mobile Phone for Sketching – Art Tuition Video No.303


Today I have chosen a demonstration which shows us how to use your mobile phone to transfer a picture onto your painting surface.

While the old masters employed the tools of their time such as the camera lucida or the even older camera obscura why shouldn´t we do the same and use what is available to us today. It is not cheating as the artist still has to get the composition, the colour harmony, and the story right to speak to the viewer.

Hope you will enjoy my choice of the day.

How to paint a River Bend – Video No.299


In this time lapse speed painting video Victor Yushkevich paints a river bend in about 20 minutes. It is fascinating to see how he develops depth in his painting with trees sloping up a steep hill. He captures the morning mystery 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.
