Acrylic Painting Lesson

I’ve found a handful of original footage from older videos that I’m excited to share with you guys! Unfortunately for this one I’m missing about 20 minutes of painting from the end of the bird, but you will still see how I layered everything to build up the lights and darks on him. I will explain the final details that I am missing footage for.

The paints I used are Liquitex basics acrylic paint & createx airbrush paint.

 If you have trouble watching this video you have two options while we are looking into solutions. 

The first option is to force the video quality. The following is what Vimeo has said about this problem:

“If they are indeed using iOS 11, unfortunately, it appears that this issue is deriving from Apple’s software. Thus there’s nothing we can do to resolve the problem from our side of things. We have reported this bug to Apple’s engineering team and we hope to have a resolution soon. As soon as we receive an update, we’ll be sure to send it along.”

If that doesn’t work for you, just fill out your name and email address in the form below and I will send you another link 🙂
