Caravaggio Oil painting Technique – Timelapse

A lot you asked me, which brand of paint I use. I make my own paint. It´s made of pure pigment and linseed or safflower oil in organic quality. There are no fillers in like plaster, chalk, baryt or wax. Also there are no additional things in like siccatives. Only the pure pigment und oil, like the Old Masters did. So I made some more tubes of oils which you can buy in my shop:

Saint Francis in Meditation – A copy from Caravaggio. It is painted in oil and originalsize (130x90cm – 51×35 in).
I started on a coloured ground with the deepest shadows before the underpainting in white.
The cloak was mostly done with glazes. The skin was done in several layers of colour and a thin glaze at the end.
