Join Pierre Finkelstein for his 3-part series, each featuring a demonstration and lecture on woodgraining veining fundamentals. This video is the recorded version of the live session with Pierre. Once the course is purchased and begun, the link is available for 30 days.
This sketch-based instruction is useful for all levels of painters. Pierre will break down graining into its simplest form by focusing on the basic structure of the heart grain as well as straight graining.
He will demonstrate how to correctly hold different brushes to create various wood patterns, composition and flow, and wood layout. You will learn how to design and compose most of the heartwood graining in a realistic manner in this drawing-based instruction. Pierre will simplify teaching the structure of the grain by minimizing color with these small-scale drawings to understand graining pattern fundamentals.
Pierre will also review some technical skills to do burls, and moire-based woods (such as birds eye, satin wood, etc). He will also review different species of wood and wood formation based on milling cuts.
