How to Paint Sunsets
Today I delved into Facebook Live a little deeper. I had tried it when I was painting at Whiskeytown, but found that I didn't have a good enough connection most of the time. So, my attempts were rather pathetic.
Check out the video below on how to paint sunsets Anyway, I tried it today under more controlled circumstances (in the studio). After watching other shaky fb live videos, I decided to set my phone up on a tripod. It worked out well, except that my phone overheated. I had to stop, cool the phone down and start another video.
In all, I had 3 videos, which I then downloaded and put together in one video here on the blog. There are some gaps in the video, as I said, so I will briefly explain some of what I did.
Let's start with the supplies and palette:
8"x10" linen panel, 3 brushed (Rosemary ivories) #6 and #10 and a cheap 1" throwaway bristle hardware brush
Paint: Gamblin Oils: Titanium white, Cadmium Yellow Light, Cadmium Orange, Cadmium Red Light, Alizarin Crimson, Dioxazene Purple, Ultramarine Blue, Manganese Blue Hue, and Sap Green.
This is my basic palette that I always use, adding other colors at times.
Actually, I was surprised that the facebook live videos had more info on them than I realized. Enjoy the demo!
