New Video: The Art of Painting

Hi Everyone! "The Art of Painting: An In-Depth Look at how an Artist Thinks and Sees" is now available for download!
In this new tutorial, I delve more deeply into the technical and intellectual process of painting than ever before. Fully illustrated with never before seen animations and graphics, this tutorial guides viewers through the creation of two drawings and several new oil paintings while describing techniques and strategies useful to artists of all skill levels. Topics in this comprehensive video include: perspective, anatomy, color, color-mixing and the interaction between light and form.

  1. This is so amazingly good! Congratulations Scott, and thanks for this great new resource. Representational artist would benefit a lot from this. Advanced, intermediate and beginners. Rationalization for a better understanding and better results in everyone practice. Your explanations are crystal clear, deep and meaningful. Really, really wonderful. You surpass yourself (and that is a lot!)

  2. Thank you Ariel! I'm really glad you enjoyed it and I appreciate the comment!

  3. Your work is fantastic.
    I was hoping to buy this new tutorial of yours, but when I realized that it is only 1 hour of video, I decided not to buy it. (it is not enough time to understand something that I am actually learning from zero, my opinion of course.

    Despite that, I find your work real amazing.

    Thank you!

  4. This is Wonderful!
    It takes you through ALL the stages in a very clear and precise way. But- visually simple and so easy to understand. Great video Scott and Thank you.

  5. Scott, I can't imagine how much time and effort you had to put in the making of this. This is a sign of your eagerness to share of your knowledge, because this can't be done just for the money. I hope that this video reaches to everyone who is looking to learn something about portrait painting and painting in general. Beautifully illustrated work, and believe me it is much appreciated by many people.

  6. Yes, Scott, it is an amazing, awesome tutorial! I've learnt a lot. Thank you!

  9. I read your article in Drawing magazine . . . it was great, and the finished portrait is beautiful. Would you consider doing a webisode on rendering with pencil or charcoal? Your first webisode covered everything up to this point, but it would be great to see a followup video of your rendering techniques and how you bring a portrait drawing to its completion.

  10. You are such an amazing painter Mr waddell I love your tutorials I wish this moment I was in Europe to learn from such a talent master painter you always amaze me,I salute you.
