    Turpentine isn’t nearly as popular as it once was for cleaning brushes, though there are still some who use it today. Most artists nowdays, myself included, use mineral spirits ( aka “Paint Thinner” ) Try to get the ” 100% Odorless ” variety.

    @art321ful
    I find that this approach works well. – Underpaint the windows with a dark value, then add the appropriate “sky color” into it, whether it’s blue sky or sunset colors. This suggests glass and reflections. Go to my website and look at the buildings on my “COMMISSIONED ARTWORK” page. You’ll see how I did them.

    I’m just very busy with my class/ workshop schedule. I’m also working to produce my own signature line of paints, brushes, palette, etc.
    In addition to the 8 clips I’ve produced and posted here, have you seen the 17 more of my lessons that Jerry’s Aratama has posted? “Search” my name on YT to bring them ALL up.

    we are depending on you but you never upload any more videos.

    thanks for the reply :) i appreciate it. love your work. keep it up

  12. wilsonbickford says:

    @Benbow530
    Well, part of it depends on what type of plastic it’s made from. Some palettes tend to stain and some don’t. I just scrape off the excess paint with my palette knife and wipe it down with thinner on a paper towel.

  13. Benbow530 says:

    hey, how do you clean your pallet so well. after im through painting, my pallet always seems to be stained. any suggestions?

    The basecoat allows me to work “wet-in-wet”, thus making blending easier. This is not the only painting approach I use, though. Sometimes, I use a more traditional style utilizing underpainting and glazing.

  23. kitarajumala says:

    nice. TY for the tips. when you know what you are doing it looks easy and works fast : ) and Ps. alltough im not new at all to painting but i havent used the basecoat thing EVER so is it the same thing as using linseed oil or whatever but on a larger scale ? cos i only use oil for particular layers,colors and spots, but never for the whole canvas.

  24. wilsonbickford says:

    I use Alexander Magic White. Bob Ross Liquid White is also available at most art supply stores.

  25. RobShawver says:

    So, is there a certain thing to use as a basecoat?
