View Full Version : Could someone please post some YouTube/ArtRage Landscape videos?

Community and ArtRage:

We need someone to post some new landscape paintings via YouTube for new users to follow using ArtRage. New users usually paint landscapes since mistakes can be hidden. If someone could paint a scene like Liam Rainsford does, myself and others would be very appreciative! Use screen capture software and not ArtRage's screen capture. We need to see the brushes used and their settings. Now if I could paint like Liam does I would be cranking out landscapes every day!


Pretty please? :cool:

It's still a work in progress but the Landscape painting playlist under the ArtRage account on Youtube https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLZBkkiqxGUipwamXPN5BxsNJg3a5RhglK is a good place to start :cool:

There are a lot more paintings in the general paintings playlist, but I'm still categorising ^_^

Thanks for creating the playlist Hannah! That really helps. There is a recent ocean painting that is done really nicely in your playlist: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8jKNlxUfMjI&list=PLZBkkiqxGUipwamXPN5BxsNJg3a5RhglK&index=32.

Liam uses two brushes (Wide Filbert #10, Liner #1), five colors (Indian Yellow, Permanent Rose, Cerulean Blue, White & Black), mineral spirits, on Fredrix 12 x 16 canvas sheets. It doesn't get any simpler than that.

Now if he can do it with that hardware we should be able to do the same using our software. We may struggle getting our brush strokes to match his, since he holds his filbert really closely to the canvas.

I'm a noob (after 5 years of picking it up and then throwing my hands up in the air). We need guidance from the pros on here. Help us to get some decent landscape videos so we can learn and understand this wonderful tool. I need to master ArtRage Landscape's because I know it will help me to paint using real brushes and real paint. The two mediums can help each other.

Thanks Hannah!

Can anyone else help by making some more good quality videos of ArtRage landscapes?

This is a nice iPad landscape; without settings, which would really help:


"World of Painting" has other ArtRage landscapes too.

And the last video that Ben has on his site:


Here is a link to Ben's wordpress paintings. He has several iPad paintings and oil paintings: https://benhaggett.wordpress.com/

Thanks for posting this link Hannah!

Their style of painting a "painterly painting" comes through in this example. They used the paint tubes to apply lots of paint, smeared it out with the pallet knife to give it that ala prima look, then applied a small oil brush to give details where they were needed. A very simple painting. Sky, lake bank and water. Just what I need to get, and keep going.

Liam's painting style uses a different approach. He blocks in his painting using oil paints (4) that are heavily thinned down which gives the painting a true wet on wet process. After blending the sky he adds oil on top for the details. The mid grounds are always light blues, to help with perspective and the foregrounds are an attempt at a Monet impressionistic style of dabs of paint. His style is a combination of modernistic muted realism in the sky and an impressionistic style in the foreground.

The only thing I wish that Liam would do is to quiet down the use of black and use more colors. Sometimes his paintings are a little to dark for my tastes.

I am still unsure on how to get AR to perform the block in stage of his paintings. The use of a wet under painting with dry oils on top may not be able to be done by AR. Notice how his under paintings act like water colors?

Enough rambling... I'm still reaching out to a super pro AR user that could duplicate Liam's style. And if it is possible, please include the brush settings as it is painted. This latest painting does not show us the brush settings. Someone in the comments section complains about this.

Thanks again Hannah! The video has helped me.

Try one of these two:

1. Filling the layer with the fill tool first and using that as a 'wet' paint background (may or may not suit what you're trying to do)

2. Boosting the thinners to about 50%; his 'sky mixing' looks like semi-thinned, but still heavily loaded, oils.

Also use the Wet palette knife for soft blending together, if you're having trouble controlling the effect.

Dry oils on top is easily done by adding a new layer - you can use the auto dry setting for the oil brush as well, but it gives you less control if you want to mix or blend later.

Great advice Hannah! I will give that a try. Liam has it down and has painted hundreds of landscape paintings using his method.

Thanks again for the help!!!

It's not landscape, but it IS oils, so you might enjoy the video in this tutorial: https://www.artrage.com/oil-painting-tutorial-foot-study/

I gave the video above a try. It's not the same, nor as good as their end result but it's as good as I can do for now. I find the pallet knife, using the default settings; which I made sure to reset, challenging to understand how to use. I will need to experiment more with it. Has anyone created a video explaining the default knives and how to use them?

I added the blue hills in the background after I painted the foreground. You can't do that using layers on a real painting! I used PS Express to clean up my painting:

This is for Android, but the knives are the same, so it should help:

Thanks Hannah! I will scope them out.
