Realistic Painting with acrylics

In the video on DVD “Realistic painting with acrylics” we see in detail and step by step how her paintings “Two chairs” and “Stones on the Beach” materialise. She shows us a wide range of  techniques accompanied with an explanatory text in English.  Many other paintings are shown in time-lapse sequences from empty canvas to finished work. Everything from a lighthouse to a portrait of a baby, vegetation, animals, sea and landscapes in detail.

Watercolour Realism
a different approach
Elizabeth Tyler enjoys working with large format watercolour paintings. She often works freely wet in wet with large brushes and running colours for backgrounds and then concentrates on small details using pens and small brushes for the foregrounds.

This DVD in four chapters includes: ”Seascape”, ”Cabbage field”, ”The Swan” and ”Last day of the tulip” In these chapters we see the paintings emerge as the artist tells us about her way of working. The DVD can even be seen and understood with the sound muted as there are explanatory subtitles throughout.

In this video Elizabeth Tyler demonstrates not only how to create both depth and detail in a painting but also how versatile and forgiving watercolours really are. The video shows close ups of how she uses unusual techniques and tools to achieve realistic results. The four chapters follow her work painting a blackberry bush and a mushroom in the undergrowth of a Swedish wood. She then reveals how she painted part of a beach in Greece and finally two crows in a stream. Available as DVD or Video on demand.
