26 thoughts on “How To Draw Like a Painter | (Start-Finish) Real Time Tutorial”

  1. The title of this painting by John William Waterhouse is the first line of a poem by Robert Herrick, a major 17th-century English poet, which expresses the “seize the day” theme. The poem advises young women to get married while they are at their youthful prime, lest they “forever tarry,” growing old while waiting in vain for a lost opportunity. One can see this theme expressed in the painting by the hint of troubled self-consciousness on the woman’s face. She is beautiful, yet appears to be in her mid-twenties, and so is approaching the upper limit of marriageable age, according to Victorian and Edwardian standards (the painting was completed in 1908). In the full painting the woman is carrying a bowl of fully blown roses.
    I am glad you are practicing and promoting artistic realism. Your emphasis on relating shapes was eye-opening to me and deserves to be widely practiced. Your process was fascinating to watch and shows that a traditional approach to drawing can produce incredible results. The final drawing is a beautiful rendition, and I am glad you described this technique with such clarity, and contrasted its rationale to that of hyperrealism, which is the overdone orthodoxy of the day.

  2. As much as I like watching you do oil paintings these are my absolute favorite videos of yours. Maybe because I am using graphite myself now that I decided to learn how to draw on actual paper instead of digitally.

  3. Yupari, Master Yupari. Loved this drawing session! Drawing is my weakness so I am so grateful and am learning from your super clear instructions. Excellent as always!

  4. As Cheryl Scott (below) mentions I think the model has what iscommonly known as an 'English Rose' complexion. Often found in redheads with a very pale complexion. wonderful video Yupari. Thankyiu

  5. I am working on a portrait of my niece, who is in her 20's. Its from a photo reference though. I used classical technique, checking out some new colors like light red (as per cesar santos) as basis for skin tone. on layer #2 now, its coming along.

  6. Great video! I have to say, even though you don't get the views you deserve, I find it inspiring that you still keep at it with continually putting out great quality videos no matter what. I'm working on some preparation for my first portrait in oil paint, which will be my second oil painting ever. (nervous about it so trying to do a test run of the person.) Learning paint by just starting with greyscale paintings by mixing white, brown, and blue.

  7. sorry to bug but you said to ask questions in latest videos…i have a problem..in charcoal i can do planes and good tonal work..even graphite..but not at all with my oils..black and white tones in oil perfect, but colour i dont understand at all..thank you xxx
