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!

Based on the accent I'd say you're german. Right?

Did you have to commission the model? And how do you go about asking to use someones photograph as a reference which you want to sell?

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!

Katrina Hernandez (1 year ago)
Can these steps be applied to acrylic painting?
Lioba Brückner (1 year ago)
Katrina Hernandez hmm I don't know! Probably not! Acrylics dry too fast for my technique.

Thanks for sharing. The volume of your "transaction music" is much louder than your voiceover. Quite annoying. You might check on that.
Lioba Brückner (1 year ago)
CarpeDiem 36 thank you!! I'll check it for my next videos!
Do you start off with purple every time you paint a portrait? I'm curious to know if it's to act as a sort of soft outline after you add the skin tones.
Good333 (9 months ago)
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..)
Crystal Starks-Webb (1 year ago)
I love your work, I seen this video on Instagram and I was going through videos on here and seen your video and I got so excited ☺️ Thanks for the steps they helped me out a lot🙂 can't wait for more.

Thank you so much for this video! Do you let the paint dry in between each step?
Sanne FineArt (1 year ago)
Lioba Brückner daaaannkke! <3
Lioba Brückner (1 year ago)
<3 I'm glad it helped you ^^ I let the paint dry only between Step 4 and 5!

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. :)

Where do you find your photo references? I love the aesthetic of them.
teacupika (1 year ago)
She finds a model and then takes the image, photoshops backgrounds, accessories, and changes colors.
Sebastian Tinajero (1 year ago)
Foxxy-Fearyn she's mentioned before Instagram she finds models she really likes and asks them permission to use them as reference :)
Marili (1 year ago)
woah this video was really informative! i really want to try out oil paint now :D

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
Ayubi Pesante (4 days ago)
Lyn you can get a very similar feel to your paints if you add a retarder to your acrylic paints, most are only about 10-12 bucks !
MythicaPaints (1 year ago)
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.
fairykelsi (1 year ago)
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
Mariane Leite (1 year ago)
Sparkling-icetea there are hues that aren't toxic, i usually paint with gloves as well so my skin doesn't have contact with the paint
Hunnybean (1 year ago)
Lyn ahhh me too, I would really like to start but the amount of mediums and thinners, the cost and the fact that some are toxic just scares me
Maj Ukooo (1 year ago)
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
Fleabug91 (1 year ago)
Maj Ukooo her paintings are speeded up. It could take a few days during this video for her to finish
Maj Ukooo (1 year ago)
Thanks for the reply! I would love if you looked at my art and told me your opinion on it, my Instagram's just the same as my name on youtube. (:
Lioba Brückner (1 year ago)
Thank you so much, Maj! If you work hard and hone your skills you'll become a full time artist, I'm sure! <3
