Values in Oil Painting and more – Mark Carder Q&A

If you have a question for me, post it in the comments below. I’ll answer as many as I can on next Thursday’s episode. Here are links to each question answered in this video:

00:04 — a lesson about misconceptions about value in paintings, specifically the overall “exposure” and what happens to colors that are “overexposed”

15:45 — Do you feel that artists like Sargent and Repin, who painted quite loose, worked more rapidly than you?

19:01 — I paint full-time and have pain and swelling in my hand after long days of work. This this normal? Do you have any tips on how to avoid this?

20:31 — Have you found a certain size painting sells better than another? Do galleries tend to prefer larger pieces to showcase?

21:57 — My studio has a very low ceiling, so my light is coming from behind my right shoulder. What do you suggest?

22:38 — What are your thoughts about color charts? Are they really useful or can I match my color by using just the color checker?
