Oil Painting Master Series – Indirect Painting — 8 Comments

  1. Question: How do you know that the painting is completely dry between layers? Is there a specified amount of time that one can allow the painting to dry?

  2. this lesson is more indepth than what little I learnt over the years. My first lesson in 2004 was held at a community centre by a teacher that said heres a brush , paint and a canvas, now paint something. so your lessons have been a god send, thank you Matt.

  3. Understanding an underpainting (term i never heard before) and glazing (term i had been overwhelmed with) is a WOW moment for me in terms of oils.
    Without going to art school, yet wanting to learn from basics even as a hobby, your courses have a lot to offer. Thank you thank you

  4. I am watching this video a couple times, but all that keeps popping in my head is “why glaze instead of just add the colors directly”. I think I’m missing something.
