    Because, the 'correct painting stroke' syntagma belongs to urban mythology, ie. there's no such thing...there's only your stroke and whether it works or not and if not, what do you need to do to make...
  2. Not sure in what sense you mean...

    Not sure in what sense you mean successful...value accuracy certainly doesn't measure the success of a painting in any meaningful way, except perhaps commercial, today.
    That alone won't put such...

    That depends of what you're after...you can't really do plein air in lazures, so people commonly use impasto when outside.

    The colors are 'rich' exactly as much as your grey from underneath is dark.
    If your colors are too dull compared to subject, it only means you measured the grey wrong (it's too dark).

    artofsuiter,
    no problem and it would be help if you linked some of your work.
    It's hard to make a diagnose, based on such slim input.

    I think you'll find this has nothing to do with speed painting, but the ability to abstract the subject.

    The short answer would be...from life.
    Drawing from life forces you to make decisions that 2D references make instead of you, which is utterly bad and kills your creative expression from the very...

    What Glenn demonstrates in the video is classical drawing, a thing the student must master in order to complete the first year on an Academy of fine arts and I guess Glenn drew (more or less) like...

    @Xeon, glad you find it useful.

    I think you look too much into things that Glenn doesn't give a second thought about, having 50 years of drawing experience. :)

    TristanFletcher,
    also, for smooth parties best use an old rag, instead of your palm.

    TristanFletcher,
    do lines with the tip and shading with the body of the stick and use a soft and dry charcoal.
    Also, you're gonna need a textured paper for the complete effect.

    I suspect the message that somehow permanently fails to get across is that a day has only 24 hours and not a minute more.

    Not really.
    Acrylic varnishes are very aggressive, both on pigment and brushes, so caution in application would be advised.
