New Studio videos and Facebook live

This week we have added the 20th Tree Lesson in Studio which looks at the use of a cut stencil. I am loving the process of building a truly comprehensive library of videos. With new videos added every week to Studio it won’t take long before other sections of Studio are reaching these kinds on numbers.

I also share my personal journey this week, talking about creating this watercolour in a video in the talking art section.

You can now watch both parts of my recent facebook live broadcast, in which I painted a watercolour from the photograph, seen below, on my professional facebook page:

Facebook live

Facebook live tomorrow at 12:00 on my facebook buisiness page:

Jason Skill – Painting with Skill

The first broadcast has been watched by over 600 hundred people since Friday lunch time!

You can watch it now on my business face book page listed above. It looked at ways to think through the construction of a beach scene and then lay down the first layer of watercolour.

Tomorrow I will be demonstrating how to finish off the painting while continuing to incorporate subtle indicators of the construction methods talked about in the first episode.

I look forward to responding to your comments and questions.

New Sargent course on Studio!

The brand new Masters section offers something very special to subscribers to studio. Jason explains the working methods of Sargent and Turner, in easily understandable lessons, so that you can begin to emulate their styles.

Jason has spent years working with the Museums service providing demonstrations and courses on the methods of the old masters. Working directly from orriginals, unpicking the processes that were employed by various painters, Jason has become something of an expert in this area of watercolour.

Prior to the lockdown, Jason had begun to teach specific courses on the methods of artists. These courses have helped shape the online lessons on Studio. The advantage of Studio is the level of depth that can be offered. Over time the Masters sections will cover much more than you would have learnt in a ten week course of two hours.

8 sections of studio are now active. All for the cost of a cup of coffee a week.

New Turner course on Studio!

Want to know how to paint like Turner?

‘Turners watercolour wonders – his tricks and techniques with watercolour’ starts January the 8th at Newcastle Arts Centre. A few places are still available [16:12:12]

Turner was an innovator. His approach to handling watercolour was radically different from many of his contemporaries. Far from being a watercolour purist, he often used unconventional materials and constantly re-invented his approach to watercolour painting. For those who love this artist work and have some experience with watercolour, this course will offer an practical eye opening glimpse into the great masters working methods.
