I have watched Carder's youtube video on painting a meta cup and while I thought he was too technical (the color finder was a turnoff at the time) I am now wondering if his ways of creating a painting are the ways that most masters do it.
I have been working on an oil painting (I'm new to oils and never have been a great drawer, please accept my apologies for the poor work), and while it IS,my best oil painting and I am pleased in that regard, the painting just doesn't look realistic and it doesn't seem to have good value structure to it. Your thoughts?
Is there some video, tool or book that will get me closer to where I want to be? Most of my books talk about painting principles and about tools, but they say little about actually doing things with oil paint.
