I think this is one of the best videos you have posted on youtube so far, you have come a long way from where you started. <3 You put together a nice full video that had all the essential information and you expanded on the important parts in a very nice natural way. And at the end you didn't oversell your patreon page like you tended to do in the beginning. I have always been a fan of your art, so it is nice to see the quality of your youtube videos representing you so much better. Thank you for sharing your content with youtube and good luck!
I love how relaxed and comfortably you approach painting. And mostly how far away you’re able to hold your brush away from the painting, except when you do details.
You gave me some ideas for a portrait I’m stuck on of my niece, she’s very pretty and I’m worried I won’t make the background match—but now I can relax. I’m painting calandrinias and have been caught up in details—I’m going to let them be blurry.
My favorite part of your painting was actually in the beginning when you were describing the underpainting colors you like to choose—that’s the stage I liked best. But she’s beautiful and you’re a fantastic teacher!
Beautiful painting techniques and such a beautiful artwork. I checked out your reference photo and my my I absolutely LOVE your photoshop edited version! This certainly gives me a ton of ideas... Thanks a lot for inspiring more!
This video is one of those videos which make me depressed and happy at the same time. Pro : It´s goddamn beautiful and I love painting/watching people paint . Con : I start realizing I will never be able to do that. Been painting with acrylics since 7 months regularly and I actually make progress, but well ...
as a self-taught artist, i've never seen anyone start off with a blue-purple outline. i hope you don't mind if i experiment with that technique. great job, and this really helped me. i usually get very overwhelmed when i paint portraits, because i'm scared i'm going to mess up. you deserve much more attention, this is true talent!
I'm not that experienced with painting but i think it depends on the picture itself, if you're using a reference try to find a color that matches up with the rest of the colors? Usually dark colors would fit (like dark red,blue,purple etc..)
This has been super helpful! I use mainly watercolours, but I have oil paints that I have used like once... Also, I have never seen mahl stick? in use. But it looks really useful and I think I might need a one. When I paint oils, I always forget that paint isn't dry and smudge it accidentaly with my hand. But you inspired me to get my oil paints out and give them another try. :)
Even though i'm broke and can't afford to start oil painting yet I still look up to you as well as Kelsey J Beckett so much. Both of your paintings are just so smooth and surreal. I absolutely love both of your styles. I thought I was crazy about watercolor, but the more oil painters I find on Instagram the more I love it!!! I can't wait to find a job and make some money so I can start playing around with oils. Thank you for fueling my inspiration and art adventures!! xo
I work at Michaels and I know they have a 5$ fine art area (artist loft brand) where you can get a cheap set of oil paints and brushes ($5 each). They aren't the best quality but they are good for starting and to see if you actually want to use that medium. (There's also gouache, watercolor and acrylic sets too). You can also use water-soluable oil paints if you don't want to use all the chemicals. You still need a medium (I cheat and use an acrylic medium) but you can wash your brushes with water and soap so it's pretty nice.
at michaels theres those beginner packs of like 24 mini oil paint tubes usually for around 20/30!! also michaels has coupons like 24/7 so you can get it half off. i used those for a long time and theyre great for the price
Wow! You paint so fast! I wish I could spend my whole day painting and drawing, after school I hope to get a job and after saving up finance becoming a full time artist. Thanks for being a huge inspiration to me Lioba! <3
