Link Love

I have spent the past week doing research (alongside actual painting).  I have been doing this through viewing You Tube videos (mostly tutorials) on value, colour, limited brushstrokes, portrait painting and painting fruit. I have also been blog hopping (mostly from the daily painters site) and reading borrowed library books. I believe it is important to learn and explore different techniques to improve on my already developed skills.

Below are the most helpful, inspiring and memorial of the videos I watched.

Keep an eye out for my next admiration file, I'll post it over the next few days, I have a feeling it's going to be about the above artist Scott Burdick. I have been captivated by his paintly brushstrokes and wonderful use of colour.

Happy watching!
