Speed Painting Great Blue Heron oil painting - Time Lapse Demo by Lachri

Today I'm demonstrating an oil painting of a great blue heron and fish using glazing techniques and starting with a monochrome painting. I painted this guy using the glazing techniques that I showed you on this video

These techniques can be done in oil or acrylic paint.
