This video will have me point out some details and edges on this painting and explain how they were painted last in the painting process.

This is of course different than most beginning painters do it. They usually draw everything in, with a hard fixed outline, and carefully fill in the color.

Sort of like coloring in a coloring book, or painting a paint by numbers painting.

This will only lead to disappointment because you will have a very rigid looking painting with hard outlines.

Turn up your volume, watch this lesson. And please take note of important points.

This video lesson is divided into 3 parts

Part 1


Part 2


Part 3

You will see how the procedures are the same for painting details and edges in a figure painting and a landscape painting like the other oil painting lesson I did for you.

The answer to this question is way beyond the scope of a simple answer in this comment section.

I suggest getting yourself a copy of my home study course and reading The Secrets of Oil Painting Supplies Made-Easy manual first.

Your presentation is unique, and as someone who has never taken an in-school class, quite informative. Keep up the good work. It is much appreciated.

I have just started oil painting and I so enjoy your letters and instructions. I plan to order the course. I painted on porcelain for a long time but oil on canvas is totally different. I really want to learn. I am excited about the few paintings I have done but know they are not done correctly. Just listing to this video has helped me so very much. Thank you
