This is Why I’m So Tired… (Painting Challenge)

This was a casual video, in my studio painting one of my teammates. I decided to make it as challenging as possible by painting portraits, in oil, from life, using crazy colored light bulbs, in under 30 minutes each. It was a challenge, but super fun and great practice. Learn some more tips about painting and share a few laughs. Not subscribed? Go here:
