    Random Tutorials---Fingernail Polish Bottle--New Tutorial Added 7/26/09

    I first posted this in the AR forum art gallery, but I thought I'd try n give a short tutorial on the basis of how l painted this oil painting ; (the gif I've posted here shows a resemblance of a step by step process of how I painted this oil painting)
    .
    first I'd like mention that I did do some blending without layers at times, but used layers to create this painting.
    .
    for each of the fruit, I painted their foundation base shape with a dark orange or almost orange-red mix.
    .
    then I chose a color that was a few shades lighter than the foundation base color to give them their neutral tones. . . .
    .
    then I chose a color a few shades lighter than the mid-tone base to lighten and give-them a sense of depth. ....
    .
    and then I chose a color that was a few shades darker-than the first foundation base to use as a shader (which was applied mostly to each of their right sides and any 'sunken' areas of their tops) the reason I applied the shader color mostly to their right sides is because I was tryinq to give the impression that the light source was mainly coming from the left top side of the canvas.
    .
    then I used a mixture of yellow, orange and white to highlight them with.
    .
    I posted 5 paintings to let you see the different effects that various light and color adjustment filters can achieve.
    .
    Well, hope this helps in your exploration of painting.

    I just created a Tutorial vid of me painting another different apple in AR and posted it to my Photobucket account....I wound up having to divide the one video up into 3 sections...been working on it almost 2 days almost nonstop,...whew!... but it's finally done ....I used metallic paint and I only used one layer in this tutorial. (and you can watch my pointer/curser as I blend the colors) I had to speed the vids up in order to downsize for uploads, but I think they turned out ok..

    A good tutorial for practice. For novice like me, it would have been better had you given the screen-shots with xplaination on mode of blening the layers.
    Thanks for sharing!

    bi, Wenkat.... sorry bout that... if I'd known that I was going to give a tutorial for this one, I could have gotten screenshots of various steps, etc. , but I just now decided to try and give a written tutorial for this one after reading a comment that someone left me in the art gallery forum. when I mentioned 'blending the colors' I mainly meant that at times instead of painting on a separate layer, I just painted directly on the last coat of paint that I had just applied. ...but first I made a duplicate of the last layer that I had painted, just in case of any irreversible mishaps. hope that helps.

    Sunflower Tutorial Added 7/24/09

    you're welcome, wenkat. . ...nice to have you join this thread, Silentman, . . I'm going to go ahead and put a link here in this comment for another video tutorial that I just finished. it's only bout 2 minutes long, just a quick-paint of a sunflower. in the video you'll see me adding a dark color to the petals before I paint the petals. . . I added the dark color first to give it shadow/ depth. hope this vid helps.
    here's the link for the Sunflower Tutorial:
