Sadie Valeri is an extraordinary artist and teacher in San Francisco whose art school, the Sadie Valeri Atelier, has gained a lot of renown in recent years. She and her husband Nowell Valeri have made a video which explains how to paint indirectly, a method of painting in which the drawing and value aspect of an oil painting is first addressed before the color is applied.
This is a preview (without the music, which is coming in the final version) that Sadie and Nowell have made to give a hint of what we can expect. (Nowell is responsible for the music, it will be wonderful!) The link is a little slow to start on my computer but give it a few seconds (and doesn't she have a nice voice!).
