This is a time-lapse of my recent full  length oil painting video “Painting Turkish Vessel with Garlic and Brass”.  I include some commentary in this video about our recent trip to New York to see the Emil Carlsen show at the Salmagundi Club.  It was so inspirational that I had to come home and paint something similar.    If you enjoy this time-lapse, please consider joining Inspired to Paint as a premium member.  We have over 100 instructional videos on Still Life, Landscape, and Portraiture along with Group Critiques, Business Tips, Art History and much more. 

Running time for the full length lesson is 3:19
