Burton Silverman: Painting The Figure Teresa
In Watercolor, 1 hour 45 minutes
In this videotape, the viewer has the opportunity to experience the extraordinary technical mastery of this artist. Burt is both controversial and candid as he unravels the secrets of his watercolor techniques. The video has everything, from taping down the paper through the corrections of the design down to the last stroke on the model’s fingers. He uses careful design, wonderful and unusual color and some very new and different methods to get the affect of the light and modeling that he desires. Burt uses brushes and paper towels to erase, big mop brushes and cross strokes to color large areas and pencil or charcoal to correct. Silverman explains everything as he paints. We recommend it for watercolorists and oil painters alike.
