349: Painting with Bright Color–New Instructional Video

–I published a new instructional video with Gumroad (see preview below). They provide the best download speeds and easiest purchasing options (Paypal or credit card). The one hour and 27-minute video is downloadable to any device, allows complete access, and comes with a convenient satisfaction guarantee. Please note that you do need to download the free Gumroad app if you are downloading to an iPad or other tablet.

In the video, I add red as a modifying color to a landscape painting. Many classic American Impressionists would add red to their pigments to give an overall harmony as well as using red to shift color along the spectrum between yellow and blue. They would use yellow to warm a color and blue to cool it. It's a fascinating way to amp up your color. I was so happy with the results I have used it exclusively since this painting.

I filmed the video in my new studio. The sound is excellent due to my new lav mic and good studio acoustics. I used all new recording equipment. New to my process is the use of multiple camera angles to show the exact colors I mix on the palette to apply to the canvas. That was a missing feature in my Youtube videos. I think viewers will appreciate the upgrade. The entire video has live commentary or added voice over to give viewers the best educational experience possible.

What you will learn in this video:
-How to achieve bright, rich color using broken, or vibrational, color
-How to achieve a variety of effects with broken color
-Why adding red to colors works to unify and modify color
-How to use a palette knife effectively
-Which palette knives to use to get certain effects
-How to apply multiple layers of color over the top of each other

Items mentioned in the video:
-Windsor & Newton Bright Red
-Ginko Leaf Shaped palette knife
-Holbein Palette Knife 6S
-Holbein Palette Knife MX-2
-Holbein Palette Knife MX-H-12
-Creative Mark palette knife

I hope you will give the video a try. Please note that if you rent the video you can download it at any time within a 30-day span, but once you download it you have to watch it within 72 hours.

Please leave comments in the comment section below. I appreciate your help to make these videos even better in the future. Many thanks for your support.

Brad Teare –September 2018


  1. Great video Brad! I greatly appreciate your instructional videos and your focus on lifelong learning in the pursuit of artistic expression. You inspired me to use more palette knives in my own work and I just love the tactical feel of the paint application. It feels like "sculpting" with color and I may leave my brushes behind for good. Thanks for sharing your insights and talents with us.

    1. Thank you, David. I'm so glad you enjoyed the video. I'm hoping to take these new videos up a level from the Youtube series. I feel a kinship between painting with palette knives and sculpting too. They definitely remind me of cutting blocks for woodcuts. There is a tactile similarity that is difficult to articulate but there nonetheless. Thank you for your kind words. It means a lot to me especially at this juncture.

  2. Brad,
    I greatly admire your virtuosity in the use of the palette knife and the application of broken color. Your video is a source of great inspiration and I appreciate the stepped-up production value; it makes for a wonderful learning assist.
    Swing that knife,son,swing it!

    1. Many thanks! So glad you are enjoying the video. I will definitely keep moving forward. Best wishes.

  3. Your video looks fabulous. Before I purchase, I would like to know if I can watch your video multiple times. For $30 I would like to own it and watch again and again to refresh the lessons. If I'm reading correctly, we are renting only for a 30-period. Is that true? Thank you in advance.

    1. The $30 price allows you to download and keep the video for whenever you want to watch it. The lower price is a one time only rental. I hope that helps. Let me know if you have any other questions. Many thanks!
