How blending works ? by Mike Mcvey (part 1 and 2)

Tags : painting tutorial 2 brush blending

Hello !!

Today i want to share 2 old videos from McVey studio. Even if they are old, they are still awesome to watch.
They explain a very simple way to blend paint, it's called feathering or two brush blending (name varies).

I) What do you need.
-2 brushs : one with paint, one with "Spit' (water works too but spit is better).
- Paint a bit thicker than usual.

II) How i do it ?
-apply shade or highlight with the first brush, then quickly blur the paint edge with the second brush.

Don't trust me ? check this 2 vids !
ps : There is another post coming with 2 more video on this technique.
