Watch Sadie paint two paintings of the same subject: One demonstrating how she paints a realistic direct oil painting, and the other demonstrating the most common errors she sees beginning students make in their paintings.
This video shows the whole process of creating a direct-method oil painting, starting with a line drawing, using an oil transfer method to transfer the drawing to the linen panel, and painting an umber under painting. The painting is developed with 2 layers of color painting, and includes techniques for for bringing a painting to a finish with glazing and scumbling.
In her voice-over instruction, Sadie shares her philosophy for representational painting, and how that philosophy influences the technical decisions she makes about colors, values, and edges as she creates a work of art.
