Reply Michal says: January 10, 2019 at 2:41 pm You dont have problem with watching people around you? 😛 Btw…its nice when someone paint very well and its nice when ppl watch and say "whoa! so nice!"..but its problem when you are begginer, you know that you are learning and paintings sux and people watch this and probably think "meh… ugly begginer's painting" :'( Reply Michal says: January 10, 2019 at 2:47 pm 7:41 you have nice, flying, orange/brown phoenix on your palet 😀 Reply Lorrieonline says: January 13, 2019 at 5:56 pm Great video – seems like such fun.

Really enjoyed this video, hitting that big red button now. Reply gary7466 says: February 8, 2019 at 11:45 pm Well, there you go–a great, simple working set up and the process explained in action. This is just an outstanding video from which anyone trying to break through in sketching outdoors can learn so much. Thank you, John! Reply A-Carvalho says: February 12, 2019 at 2:32 pm "If you're interested in looking cool, I don't really reccomend doing this."Seeing that every abstract shape has a purpose shows me the genius behind the brushes. It's cool enough to me. Reply blue says: February 18, 2019 at 1:44 am mAKE SURE THE WATERCOLOR KNOWS YOU'RE IN CHARGE i love, love, love this advice! my watercolors are relatively cheap and there's no possible way to make a clean flat wash, so i'm trying to learn techniques that use layering and lots of textures. this comment just made me smile and comment immediately down here lol. you earned a subscriber once again! <3 °˖✧◝(⁰▿⁰)◜✧˖° nice job Reply dinu jäger says: February 21, 2019 at 7:36 am Awesome! Thanks for sharing your experience👍 Reply Rachel P says: February 24, 2019 at 11:30 am heyy so ive always wanted to learn how to paint well and ive always loved working with art when i was younger though i was never an expert it was super fun, but that was a long time ago and i guess i wanna relearn how to paint and sketch and stuff…tips on beginners?? Reply Unkrautgarten KeinNachname says: March 5, 2019 at 2:14 pm Is that clip on watercontainer thing common? I've been looking for something like this, but can't finde it…. Reply Anne Saffer says: March 10, 2019 at 1:56 pm Alias Grace by Margaret Atwood!Fun video! I don’t use watercolor because it’s s too difficult! I always end up with a mud colored painting. So I enjoyed watching someone who can handle it and get great results. Love the use of gouache and conte crayons! Reply Arte Tinta says: March 12, 2019 at 6:32 pm Incredible!

They have such a spontaneous & jewel like quality. I went to a John Constable exhibition many years ago and much preferred all his colour sketches to the finished works. Reply Thom B says: March 22, 2019 at 1:56 am my mother does this when she goes on trips – last time i was home I took a long look through them. I may have to start doing this. Reply Joe Donahue says: March 22, 2019 at 1:26 pm you prob get asked a lot but do you have somewhere where you detail your sketch pad materials? I don't see why someone doesn't manufacture a good sturdy toned mixed media sketch pad at this point. So many water media artists out there who can't find a good pad to use without making it themselves! I guess I wonder what paper or card stock you use? Thanks. Reply Genius I.K.

I think that would lessen the item you need to have in your bag and during painting. Reply Paulina says: April 11, 2019 at 7:36 pm U have very captivating vioce Reply taunus spatz says: April 15, 2019 at 8:12 am Great video Marco. Thankis for explaining the whole process – it all makes sense! Until now I only used watercolors for sketching outdoors but I will definitely try to add some gouache the next time. And conté sticks seem to be thrilling (and a good chance to mess it up :-))) Greetings from Germany, Thomas Reply POPO TV says: April 16, 2019 at 9:31 am Marco, can we use acrylic instead of gouache? Reply Andro mache says: April 21, 2019 at 12:48 am I'm sure you are an amazing and well known artists and I sure don't mean this in a bad way but what is it? You kept showing the buildings and I expected to see a painting of buildings. However I just see blobs of random color that make absolutely no sense. Are others seeing a painting of what he's looking at? Do I need to get my eyes or brain checked? Reply alex says: April 22, 2019 at 5:59 am I imagine you just standing on the middle of the road sketching lmao Reply wildzwaan says: April 24, 2019 at 5:34 pm Ahhh magnificent stuff subscribing this instant Reply ReineGalena says: April 26, 2019 at 5:30 pm I finally got the nerve to go and paint at the more secluded side of the park.

Painting while standing, holding your tools with 1 hand, and yet you still manage to do it! Reply Krys says: May 3, 2019 at 7:04 pm Braving the hold.. Ha. I went down to a meadow to paint a couple weeks ago and the sun was out and this light breeze came over. (It’s April at this point) and pretty moderate temperature. Anyway, I puss out and ended up slapping two lazy splotches of colour on my paper and then packed everything up and went home. I imagine in the summer I’m gonna end up doing the same, but because it’s “too hot”. But when I’m inside, comfortable, trying to make some kind of art, ..I sit here on my iPad. Heh. Reply Angel Slayer says: May 7, 2019 at 3:22 pm What a great artist! Reply Katherine Paredes says: May 7, 2019 at 10:25 pm Wow wow wooooww! Reply RoseyRoses says: May 8, 2019 at 11:52 pm That up close shot of the painting made my jaw drop. My perspective of painting changed at once. I've been so caught up lately in thinking "can anyone even tell what this is" but as you said, putting the most detail in the thing that interested you initially, and then expressing the image not exactly copying it was eye opening. I feel super inspired 💓 Reply Balina midnight says: May 9, 2019 at 11:02 am Me: first 2 mins of the videosubscribe button = clicked!

Reply Leash H says: May 15, 2019 at 8:37 pm I love how you’re nonchalant about the watercolor bleeding. It’s definitely a medium that requires a ton of control, but also full freedom. Your video allowed me to see that I need to stop nit picking everything. I always seem to get discouraged when my colors bleed. Especially when the mixture ends up looking muddy. Great work! Reply Dissonance Paradiddle says: May 23, 2019 at 4:09 am The whimsical beauty the colors added compared to the source is so pretty🤩 Reply Rob C says: May 25, 2019 at 8:16 pm Nice! Love the painting. Love the cat. Cannot decide between oil and water color for plein air type stuff. New to painting after years as a photographer.

Reply шер кур says: June 17, 2019 at 9:58 am im enjoyed that Reply Omileti says: June 20, 2019 at 4:38 pm I really enjoyed this video, your process, and how you went about everything. It gives me confidence that I too can do this… and express myself… What I loved is that I don't need to make an identical copy… but an expression of my art. Love it! Reply Charlee e says: June 22, 2019 at 2:36 pm This is the best video I've seen here on youtube. I love how you explain every detail of how you think. I appreciate this so much! Reply Linda Maude says: June 27, 2019 at 10:24 pm You call it a sketch; if I could do this it would be framed on the wall! Reply Blessing VH says: June 30, 2019 at 11:27 am This is so cool. I really like the sharp contrast in the composition. I also really like how you are capturing the expression of your subjects rather than trying to copy it like a copy machine. I just subscribed because of all this. 😬 Reply mahendra iik says: July 1, 2019 at 11:52 pm Very fast ❤️❤️❤️ Reply candiigurl7893 says: July 2, 2019 at 4:44 pm "Its the expression of an object not an exact copy of it." This is really spoke to me on a deep level. Perfectionism and exact-ism are my 2 greatest problems when I do any kind of art.

Thanks for the encouraging video. I always try to simplify my shapes while drawing, but it seems that the process needs more practice. Also, I WISH I could simply go out and draw, but i get very anxious and people here keep starring which makes the situation even more awkward. But anyway, thanks for the video and filming in the cold for us 🙂 Reply Just Me says: August 2, 2019 at 9:40 am Awww, I think you look cool. Great video, thanks! Reply cloudsofsunset says: August 3, 2019 at 7:49 pm I am not a water medium artist nor interested in painting in streets but honestly tips like: "The image is not my boss" and painting what helps the composition. These type of tips are valuable to me right now. Btw turns out really cool! Reply Leo T. says: August 4, 2019 at 4:34 pm Video is nice, but audio is super cringy Reply C.
