[WATCH]: Speed Painting Photorealism… Again.



Rating: 4

Another digital painting done from scratch in photoshop using Wacom Intuos 3 tablet. Artwork is completely freehand drawn, with reference photo set off to the side for glancing at. No tracing… ;-) Actual time to do pic was about 3 and a half hours. UPDATE: For the people that think this is fake– simply do a little research. It’s as easy as clicking on my username to see the list of all of my other videos. There you will find an array of different subjects and different mediums… Including photo real techniques with real paint. It it’s a pretty reasonable conclusion that if I can do the things I do with real paint– why would I feel the need or insecurity to fake it with the “less impressive” digital mediums? Why waste my time? You could also consider the efforts it would take to fake such a thing- consider the layering of the shadows and gradients… Look at how carefully it is done in these vids. There is a visible build-up of LAYERS of tones shadows and colors. To fake something like that would take so much effort, why would a guy who can do all of the other OBVIOUS traditional medium paintings on the same channel waste his time? TO MANY PEOPLE ASK: Why “photorealism”? Why not just use a camera? The answer is simple. I’ve made the point many times in my replies, comments and descriptions. But I’ll make it clearer here for those who do not understand: It’s for practice. It is the same as a musician practicing scales, so that he can write better songs…Or even a

Making a Fine Art Painting – Which is Best, Acrylic Paint or Oil Paint?

Trying to decide which type of paint to use to paint your next art masterpiece? Should you go with the tried and true oil paints, or should you try the newer medium of acrylic paint? Each of these types of paints has their pros and cons which you should investigate so that you can choose the medium that suits your painting style. You are the artist, you make the call.

 

Oil paint, the traditional medium, is basically powder pigments mixed with clear linseed oil. This paint is slow drying and for that reason is perfectly suited for blending colors together smoothly with plenty of time to contemplate the painting’s progress and still have time to edit and adjust the image before the paint dries. Another plus of oil paint is the luminous quality of the paint which is achieved from the linseed oil medium which allows light to pass through the paint and bounce thereby illuminating the paint on the surface. Additionally, oil paint has been proven to be the most permanent medium for fine art painting. Most paintings on canvas and wood were made with oil paint from early Renaissance times until the 1960’s when acrylic paints were introduced.
