New Video: Making a Miniature Paper Room for Painting Reference

In this video, I'm making a paper maquette (scale model) of a room to refer to as I continue to develop my painting “Withdrawing Room I." I also chat about the architecture that inspired the painting, including the Thorne Miniature Rooms & 18th-century architect Robert Adam.
The much longer, more in-depth versions of these progress videos are available on Patreon:

Color Mixing with a Chromatic Triad: New Patreon Video

Color Mixing with a Chromatic Triad: the 2nd episode in my series of painting videos is now up on Patreon!
In this episode, I'm planning the addition of color to my currently monochrome painting "Withdrawing Room I". I'll be using a coffee cup as my color inspiration for the walls in the painting, and attempting to match the cup with oil paint.

New Video (Painting in a Hemisphere) and Teaching Platform!

I've just started posting a new series of videos!  Mini studio vlogs will be available on my Youtube channel, and longer videos on Patreon, which I'll be using as a teaching platform and to share my process in depth:

Here is the first mini studio vlog!

In this video, I'm working on an oil painting inside a hemisphere and adding an 18th-century dress (from a digital life study I did at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on my iPad).  This stage is a "grisaille" underpainting with neutral gray mixtures of oil paint.
