There’s so much to learn when you’re slinging paint and pencil, so here’s the ninth installment in my monthly segment, Muddy Colors: Art Tip of the Month with Jeff Miracola. Each of my short videos will share a handy tip to help you create magnificent art.
My art tip this month is: Painting a Snow Scene
It’s Spring time! That means we should start seeing the sun, right? That’s not the case in Wisconsin. But since we have new fallen snow I thought I’d use the opportunity to show you how I go about painting a snow scene using oil paint.
Jeff began his career in 1993 as a freelance illustrator for many role-playing/collectible card game companies such as Wizards of the Coast, Upper Deck, Blizzard, White Wolf, Steve Jackson Games, FASA Corporation, and more. Some other clients include Electronic Arts, Target, Hasbro, Scholastic, Immedium, and Warner Bros.
Jeff’s work has been exhibited in numerous galleries and his art and tutorials featured in publications such as Advanced Photoshop, Expose, and ImagineFX magazines. Jeff is a Silver Medal Winner in Spectrum: the Best in Fantastic Art and was the 2011 Guest of Honor at GenCon, the longest running gaming convention in the world.
Jeff is very passionate about sharing his knowledge of art techniques through his popular YouTube channel, which currently boasts more than 31,000 subscribers and 1.5 million views. His feature-length art instruction DVD series for Fantasy Art Workshop received rave reviews from ImagineFX Magazine, Video Librarian, and more.
When Jeff isn’t creating art for himself or clients, he loves to travel and work out with his wife, with whom he has three children.
For the record, you’re a superstar and genuinely nice guy! Some time ago you answered a question after watching a video from another site. If you take requests…how about at some time a video showing technique for painting scales using watercolor…and to add to the challenge on watercolor board as opposed to WC paper….perhaps painting a dragon? Always interested in differently methodology from different artists using mediums I don’t see them traditionally working in.
Thanks for sharing this helpful video and article…
