    Been using these techniques for many, many years and wholly subscribe to them. For me, the hard part is not
    painting with this method, but in actually finding the words to pass on this excellent philosophy to others. The
    more who watch this the better......a brilliant post ........terrific stuff !

    Interesting video. I tend to use a limited pallet, but have a warm and cold version of each basic colour (e.g. a warm [orangy] yellow and a cold [greenish] yellow, but still a clear yellow). That way when I paint something I can think about what I want to have - a cold or a warm tone - then use the basic pallet with the desired 'temperature' (forgot what the correct term is, too busy doing analysises of engineering thingemywhatsits)

    Thank you for this , essential viewing, so simple and effective, helps me understand more on how to create highlights and shadows as well.
