All of it! Whilst this presentation doesn’t show every single brushstroke, I have filmed every stage of the paintings. Each painting is compressed down to the essential techniques.

Yes! Frequently. Colour mixing is important and intermittently through the presentation I show my palette and how I mix some of the colours in this painting.
