  • DIY - Oil Painting Panels

    In today's video, I show you how I make these oil painting panels/boards myself. I also talk about the following advantages of making and using such boards. 

    1. Control on texture
    2. Cost-effectiveness
    3. Custom sizes 
    4. Easy to dry 
    5. Easy to ship

  • Aerial Perspective

    Want to add a feeling of distance in your paintings? We can use the principles of aerial perspective to do that. Here are the 6 aerial/atmospheric perspective phenomena that occur in nature.  As the distance increases,
    1. Colors become lighter and closer to sky color

    2. We see fewer details in objects

    3. Edges become blurred

    4. Value Contrast reduces 

    5. Size of objects reduces

    6. Overall values become lighter

    The video below shows how I use these in a painting.
