In the video below, I'm discussing if you really need talent to become good at art and what I really think you need to become good at it. In this video I'm working on the background and underpainting for the painting I'm going to title "Woman Taking Picture".
Fredrix 9x12 Belgian Linen Green Label Pro Series Canvas
Liquitex and Amsterdam Acrylic paints
Princeton Select Brushes
I didn't have time to make the video I wanted to make about whether using a colored underpainting for skin can get you more realistic results, so I made a video instead where I show you my sketches and what I've been doing this week. I finished my painting, "Mystery Woman In A Museum" and did a practice sketch for the painting I'm going to title "Woman Taking Picture". I throw in some art tips too.
