The pencil-and-watercolor methods of a master.
Really awesome share and take, cool to see English versions
Love that you explore different drawing styles as animations. Big fan of anime!
Thank you for sharing this. I wish they'd been for sale when I visited the museum!
I know he mentions "Holbein is reasonably priced and a little goes a long way so i recommend it" but this does not meant that Holbein is cheap or bad quality paint. He's using tubes of watercolor, which is the 'more bang for your buck' option when it comes to buying watercolor. (they also come in tins, which is even cheaper, but tinned watercolors are less flexible.) Also, Holbein is a really good quality manufacturer. They're definitely professional-grade paint; they use good materials and the pigments are strong. Drawing the conclusion that he's a "not-fussy cheapskate" isn't accurate. Holbein tubes aren't CHEAP, there are way cheaper (and worse) options. Also, he's recommending 24 very specific colors. It took a lot of fussing for him to select those 24. It took a lot of fussing for him to decide on Holbein (over other brands, such as Daniel Smith, or Winsor Newton, or Da Vinci, etc). He's summarizing years of fussiness in a drawing, but concluding that's he's not fussy and a cheapskate doesn't ring true to me.
