  4. Man that's wicked. I've always wondered: would this method of painting be considered an advanced form of alla prima painting? Aside from having a really exact drawing done beforehand, it looks like the paint is applied essentially in one long sitting or at least without building upon layers of paint.

    1. Not really, and for a few reasons. Firstly, he is not painting the -entire- image wet into wet, simply one small area. Secondly, I'm willing to bet he goes back in for a second coat once it's dry. When painting area by area, you sometimes need to unify things later on with a few glazes and whatnot.

    2. Oh gotcha. Thanks Dan! I'm actually watching his new video now and he is glazing on top of this painting so you're totally right.

  5. at around 7 minutes i realized this technique paints the stare-thru-your-soul eyes first so that the remainder of the process is haunting and creepy.

    but in a beautiful way, mind you.

  6. To watch this was - in a word - delicious! It definitely illustrates the importance of the underlying drawing, the "bones" of the painting. Thank you!
