A 3 hour 22 minuite Instructional video by Don Finkeldei with emphasis on using a limited palette with premixed gray modifiers.
Learn how to use a limited palette with pre-mixed gray modifiers. The palette consists of cadmium red light, cadmium yellow light ultra-marine blue, alizarin, viridian and titanium white.
Pre-mixing neutral grays and grays with hues at different intensities and values will help you to paint faster with more accuracy.
In this video you will see how I prepare a limited palette, premix gray modifiers, prepare and execute the sketch and paint a larger painting from a field sketch

This was the best demo I've seen. No cut aways, no coming back and finding large portions competed. Thank you for being honest in your rendition. I visit Ghost Ranch and paint with a less learned approach - I'm changing that right now. Thank you for a beautiful demo.
