Make Your Mark!

Watch as Oksana walks you through this painting from preliminary sketch to finishing details. The camera angle is up close and the work is created in real time.

You will learn to:

  • create thick impasto paints by adding cold wax medium.
  • choose the right shape and size of palette knives to control paint marks.
  • avoid smudges while adding details.
  • use tones and tints to create a dramatic interpretation of the photo reference.
