I’m super excited to share this very special oil painting timelapse tutorial, where I’ll be guiding you through how to create a warm and nostalgic landscape painting of a cozy cottage! In this video, you can paint with me as I walk you through every stage, starting from laying down those initial shadows with burnt umber to adding vibrant colours that breathe life into the composition. We’ll cover blocking in, oiling out, and what to do when you need to alter a reference image to paint a memory instead of photograph. It’s all about making those childhood memories leap off the canvas and into your heart.
