Image of I’ve Been Doing Painting Videos All Wrong

For the last year or so I’ve been obsessed with watching instructional videos for painting. I probably own a few thousand dollars worth of videos, plus a subscription to Lynda.com and ArtistsNetwork.tv and I may add another subscription site. I spend about 2-3 hours a week watching videos, and some weeks I may average one a day, especially if I’m trying to figure out a particular technique. What I would do is watch a video, and take notes along the way of what the artist says to do. Then I would watch another one, or I would test out the technique in a bunch of studies.

That’s all changed thanks to Bob Ross, Johannes Vloothius, and Richard Robinson. Now I approach painting videos very differently and it’s radically made learning to paint way more fun.

Filler, for now. We're waiting for new moderators to volunteer, at which time we know they'll make this community great. Interested in the role? Is being a moderator your calling?
