Braitman Studio: Suggested Intermediate Paints & Brands

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Above you will find a list of suggested intermediate oil paints and brands that some of our Braitman Studio instructors selected JUST for you! We hope that as you paint with some of the new tubes above you will enjoy, see and feel the difference in working with better quality oil paints. Remember, investing in a bit more expensive oil paint allows a little bit of paint go a long way because it has less filler and more pigment.

All of the paint listed above can be purchased at a Cheap Joes, Binders Art Supply, etc. except for the Utrecht tubes we listed, which need to be ordered from www.utrecht.com. If you prefer online shopping it is good to know that Utrecht also carries a lot of the other paint brands above.

Good luck and if you have any questions, contact us at 704.846.1369!

DISTRACT THE EYE

We are now moving to our edge control exercises that are based around the concept of distracting the eye.

In this first exercise, use local color reflections to distract the viewer’s eye.

Don’t let life distract you from taking an hour or so a week to practice some of these great exercises!

Let’s work with a brush stroke distraction to obscure the edge. Your brain more easily dismisses a vertical a brush stroke where as a horizontal brushstroke carries more weight. Use a parallel stroke to obscure the strength of an edge.

Great efforts on these edges!
