Brian believes that most painting processes are learned skills that can be mastered by investing time and repeated practice.

  • How to keep edges interesting
  • How to define the star and supporting players of your painting
  • Generating interest in a painting
  • Painting reflections in the water — something many artists never get quite right

Brian Blood Studio Painting Secrets

With the exception of one jarring edit where we didn't get to see the finish of the background area of the studio painting ( which mysteriously appeared out of nowhere! ) a well produced, well shot and generally very informative DVD. No 'secrets' to speak of here but it's always of great interest to learn how various artists solve the problems that a given subject presents. I would highly recommend it for beginning and intermediate level painters.

Excellent

Brian explains every step but also gives additional information that is essential for landscape painting. I watched the whole thing in two separate days. You want to make sure you pay close attention to what's going on. Excellent teacher and master painter! Worth every penny.

Brian Blood Studio Painting Secrets

Over all the dvd was very informative. The only criticism that I have is that the digital picture that was used as the subject matter was not shown very often, and the monitor that displayed the image had a glare. This made it very difficult to see the subject image.
I also really enjoyed the interview with the artist. Brian presented quite a bit of good information about the journey to becoming a full time professional artist.

Wonderful Teacher

Brian shows how he does a studio painting. He is a great teacher. Painting is not really about tips or secrets, but a long list of techniques that you must follow. Brian will show you his techniques.
