Webisode 6: Painting the Effects of Light (Available in HD)



Hi Everyone,
Here is Webisode 6. It's taken a little while but I'm excited to be back with this new installment. I appreciate all of the support I received with the Portrait Painting Demonstration. As a result, I can now produce these videos in High Definition. If it's not already set, you can switch to the 1080p HD setting in the lower right hand corner of the Youtube viewing window. I'm already working on a new downloadable video that will be in HD and am in talks with a couple other artists to have even more videos in the future.

I hope you all enjoy this webisode and can indulge me on the cinematic scope of the music and editing (I have trouble remembering that I'm not making the 4th installment of the Lord of the Rings). Also, you will notice some animations throughout. I've become very interested in using simple 3D models to illustrate some of the concepts that are important to my process. I think there is a lot of potential with this although I'm only in the early stages of learning how to do it. These animations are only intended to illustrate certain points that I make throughout. They do not represent the actual physical behavior of light.

Thanks for watching!
Scott

  3. Scott, what you're doing is so much valuable! I really loved that portrait video you did, and it was totally worth it! I would love to see more in the future, even with other artists.

    Your way of treating paints like sculpture makes so much sense, especially how to turn form and drop value and chroma.

    Thanks again for all the work, glad to see you're back with these great webisodes.

    ps. did you ever do digital paintings?

  4. Scott ! Another successful video. GREAT JOB! It's amazing that you continue to find new ways to make each successive video more impressive then the last. Keep up the good work. Oh, your portrait video was worth every penny and then some. Thank YOU for making such an informative video so affordable.

  5. Oh my God, great video but scary verbage..... "specular reflections... diffuse transmission, helix spectrum". I tried to watch without listening because the technical aspect was taking me back to my high school science class - scary place. But to watch you paint was marvelous. I too, enjoy working from an underpainting and then proceeding to the direct painting. Incredible video. Thank you so much! I will pass on to my students. I have been trying to convey this idea of using light and color to build form you have done it subtlely and beautifully! bravo

    Such Intensity in your face! Like Admiral Nelson descending upon some hapless French ships in Valetta harbour! Ok, enough of that, but that one was really good. Especially since the final product is just leagues above just about everyone else doing this, you're some sort of Form Lord or something. I'm sure everyone would like to know what kind of brushes you're using, because after all that's the most important thing in painting... isn't it? See you soon.

  15. Wow these videos are amazing! I just learnt more about painting the figure in a few minutes then after 3 years of art school. I like the cinematic drama too, makes it exciting ;-)

    You could do a whole DVD set!

  16. Where have you been all my life? Your gift for instruction is only exceeded by your gift of painting. Thanks.

  17. great vids and excellent visualisations of what can be very difficult to verbalise, but the soaring music is incredibly distracting and sometimes even drowns out your voice. can this be toned down in any way?
