Ghools’ Painting Tips – Glazing Flesh: Intermediate Principles

Following up from the first video which introduces the painter to the basic principles of employing glazes for flesh, this video advances those methods one step further.

With these intermediate techniques, I demonstrate how to paint cuts, bruising, veins, and how to add character. Instead of covering large sections of flesh to create colour distinction, I instead apply the glazes precisely and in a controlled manner to create a myriad of effects on the flesh.

Experiment, and see what other colours can be used, and what effects they produce. Try greens, blues, and purples for a start.
