    Thanks for the interesting video.

    Here is the trailer for the film using the same images

    folks

    Bouncing off a comment by Rob about his dilemma of realism versus Impressionism (which I interpret in this context to mean realism vs painterly approaches to painting style) I happened on this 10 minute video by Fogarty.

    She uses a limited palette and her work comprises muted foggy interiors or exterior architecture.
    There are two takeaways in her video relating to edges. In paraphrase she found the brush too soft and the knife too hard for constructing the required edge variation. Karen then used strips of matting board as a soft knife and used these to good effect in forming quite a range of soft edge characteristics.

    This is a technique that offers some potential in landscapes and for still life and portraiture backgrounds.

    i may have a fix for your coloured elbows.

    Inspired by Michael James Smith's natty bridge I made one with furniture glides screwed on the ends.
    This works well for horizontal painting.



    A sliding bridge shown upside down here to illustrate simple assembly. 1.5 x 1.5 x 25 inches.

    Now building a 30x40 inch vertical, palette box, easel to sit on the desktop. The interesting feature here is a sliding track bridge on rollers with a large vertical glass palette. Still a work in progress, parts mostly complete but needs assembly, I'll post a plc soon.

    O1 - O2 is called the eyeline and it also represents the horizon.
    The eyeline gives you the clue that you are looking downwards on items below the eyeline.
    Conversly, we look upwards at items above the horizon or eyeline.
    A cylinder end drawn on the eyeline will be a straight line.

    It is very important to establish an eyeline / horizon, both on the canvas and on the subject. 
    O1 & O2 are also called vanishing points. Every point on the drawing has a fixed relation to the horizon and the vanishing points.

    Have a browse through these perspective drawings
