When setting up a still life, posing a model for portrait or figure composition, or viewing a landscape, the artist has the definitive task of visualizing and assigning the various elements of the subject matter. David A. Leffel likes to use analogies to writing or composing music in his oil painting demo: “The decision about how many characters a story needs and what kinds of personalities those individuals should have is the same as deciding on the colors, values, and textural changes in a painting.”

Leffel also gives oil painting artists advice on how to approach their initial drawings. Bringing attention back to the concepts celebrated in the work of such masters as Van Dyke, Rembrandt, and Velazquez, oil painting artist Leffel explains that oil art needs to be the product of a mind that is seeing, tasting, exploring the entire fabric of life. “Most people begin oil art by trying to match the reality of what is in front of them,” Leffel explains. “The closer they come to achieving that match, the more they believe they have accomplished something. But in truth, they have only copied what is outside of them. That kind of external process doesn’t lead to a fulfilling conclusion.”

In this oil painting demo, artists will learn the reasoning behind color choices and brush techniques for the convincing oil painting masterpiece. All artists should not pass-up this opportunity to have an acclaimed oil painting artist give them expert advice on all aspects of oil painting.
