First Layer Painting Video

If you saw yesterday's post, you will know that my favourite way to start a painting at the moment is with a layer of all over colour. Sometimes I use one flat colour. Recently, I had so much fun starting a canvas with a rich dark blue base. When I added other colours over the top in the second layer, they really popped.

Other times I will use a combination of colours as that can be more interesting than working with just one colour but I do encourage you to try both methods.

Here's a video to give you a better idea. I'll be honest I haven't watched this video many times because it has me in it and I'm still getting used to that!


I hope you enjoyed the video. I'm keeping this post super short because I've got a big studio day planned for tomorrow and I need to get to bed early and start this week on a good note!

See you tomorrow Xx
