  • DEMO: There have been numerous emails from those asking for a painting lesson. Giving such a lesson by email would be hardly practicable, thatís why I decided to create a little demo.

    I normally paint on grounded silk glued onto pressed cardboard.
    02. (14:20)
    Instruments: palette knife. Prior to painting I always cover the surface with a thin layer of white paint by means of a palette knife, which simplifies paintbrush strokes. For the time being, the white paint is a bit gray.
    03. (14:31)
    Instruments: palette knife and flat paint-brush No15. I always start painting landscapes with the sky and background. There are no standards for painting clouds, so I rely on my imagination. The most important thing is finding a precise colour of the sky and clouds from the very beginning because itís difficult to apply drastic changes upon completion of the painting.
    04. (14:40)
    Instruments: flat paint-brush No15. As you can see, this is what Iím doing...
    05. (14:47)
    Instruments: flat paint-brush No15. I paint fragments common in their color. It looks like a cartoon frame because colors and tints are very few.
    06.(15:02)
    Instruments: flat paint-brush No15. The cartoon continuesÖ
    07.(15:25)
    Instruments: flat paint-brush No15 and some thin round brushes. What you can see here is more intelligible picture thanks to shades.
    08.(16:07)
    Instruments: flat paint-brush No15 and some thin round brushes. Since daylight is fading out, I make a pause and take an additional shot using flash camera to convey the feel of colouring, and to avoid glare by moving a bit sideways. As itís getting dark, I decide to continue it tomorrow.
    10. 2003.01.16 (13:23)
    Instruments: palette knife and flat paint-brush No15. Iíve been working for some 20 minutes now and, as you can see, IĎm starting a new stage with this very sky and clouds because the first layer was very thin while the white color should be very dense to last long. I almost donít use dissolvents and apply the densest paint with the palette-knife.
    11.(14:45)
    Instruments: flat No15 and some thin core paint brushes, and my normal shaggy brush. Work on medium- and background. Now Iím using thinner brushes and even some shaggy ones to paint leaves.
    12.(15:13)
    Instruments: flat No15 and some thin core paint brushes, and my normal shaggy brush. Work on medium- and background.
    13.(15:47)
    Instruments: thin brushes. Here I recall the tree.
    14.(16:06)
    Instruments: thin brushes. Simple graphical work.
    15.(17:18)
    Instruments: standard shaggy brush. This tree seems an eternity.
    16.(17:27)
    Instruments: flat brush No15. Freshening up the foreground with almost the same color, but a bit brighter.
    17.(18:05)
    Instruments: thin and wide fluffy brushes. As you can see, it is very easy, but I need to precisely convey the nature of the soil being the most part of the painting.
    18.(18:11)
    Instruments: thin and medium brushes. Here I decide to brighten the landscape up. Sometimes I go back to the medium- or background if I find it necessary.
