Nostell Priory painting conservation 2014

In twenty fourteen we sent a handful of paintings from Nostell Priory for conservation. Our House Team and specialist movers, Constantine, take down, pack and transport the paintings to Gillian Walker’s studio. Gillian begins work by removing the paintings from their frames. Lucy cleans between the canvas and the stretcher, vacuums the back of the canvas, and uses a smoke sponge to remove fine dust and dirt. It’s important that the canvas is adequately tensioned, so the stretcher keys are

Why paint from life?

– Hello. So today, I’m going to, I’m in my studio, and I’m going to be painting this set up. But I wanted to ask a few questions before I do. And the main one is, why should I paint from life? So, I could take a photograph of this and then trace it onto a canvas and I would probably have a more accurate painting, and then I could fill in the colours. So why am I doing it

How to paint like Pablo Picasso (Cubism) – with Corey D’Augustine | IN THE STUDIO

Hi, I’m Corey D’Augustine. Welcome back to In the Studio. Today, we are responding to some of the comments from previous sections, specifically some interest in Pablo Picasso, undoubtedly one of the most crucial artists of the 20th century. Well, we’re not going to take on our friend Pablo directly. Instead, we’re going to explore one of the movements that he is most closely associated with, and, of course, that’s Cubism. Really one of the watershed moments in the 20th

New Year Special!!! Demo Oil Painting Video: Sunset at Simultala (Last Light of the Day).

This is a demo painting video about a scene that I saw in Simultala, Bihar. I saw it for about three minutes and it was gone… A very inaccurate picture to show myself what was there. This is a 5X7 inch oil sketch done just after I returned to the guest house. I just didn’t want to lose the picture that I had in my mind. Drawing starts with burnt umber with loose strokes. Covering areas very quickly… The finished

Peter Paul Rubens: Painting Samson and Delilah | National Gallery

Good afternoon. My name is James Heard. I’m one of the freelancers here. But I have a special association with this painting because I am an artist, and my studio is in Antwerp, the city, of course, of Rubens. And today we are actually celebrating the opening of this new space in the National Gallery, the first for some 26 years. To do that, we’re going to look at this ravishing painting by Peter Paul Rubens. Now, Antwerp was on

I Repainted My FIRST Painting 10 YEARS Later (2010 vs 2019 Self Portrait)

* The year was 2010. Jersey Shore was my favorite show. Yo, shut your mouth, you dirty little hamster! YouTube was at its golden era. Hide your kids. Hide your wife. Adele was “rolling in the deep!” I was a senior in high school and I just started making my very first YouTube channel. Diego, my friend, thinks that I’m posting stuff on YouTube, so I guess I should to be legitimate. I had just started taking my artwork seriously

Oil Sketch Timelapse | Clasped Hands

Hi everyone, welcome to my channel, I’m Louise and today I’m doing an oil sketch on my Moleskine sketchbook. When I do oil sketches in my Moleskine, I usually paint on it straight away instead of drawing out in pencil and doing an underpainting like I do when I’m creating actual paintings on wood panels or canvases. And because I’m painting without a pencil sketch it can be really challenging, so usually I start out with the shadows because that’s

Oil Sketch Timelapse | Landscape

Hi everyone, it’s Louise and welcome to my channel. Today I’m painting a sketch in my Moleskine sketchbook and it’s referenced from another one of my photos I took in Korea. A lot of my photos of Korea are about nature because I really like nature and living in Singapore, I’m constantly surrounded by tall buildings and structures. Usually I don’t come across an unobstructed view of the natural world so I tend to be attracted to nature. In this
