Painting in 3D - How to using highlights and shadows

Want to paint 3D objects, but they always end up looking flat?

Watch my video to learn how to paint in 3D using highlights and shadows. 

If your painted objects always end up looking one dimensional, don't worry you're not alone. This is one of the most common things I get asked about. Thankfully it's really easy to fix.

Watch my video below to learn my super simple technique of using highlights and shading to instantly make your painted objects look more three dimensional.

In most natural light any basic object will have a shaded side and a lighter side, with a mid tone shade in between. That means you need a minimum of 3 shades of colour on your object to give it dimension.

I'll show you step by step how to mix your three shades and add a lighter side and a shaded side to any object so you can overcome your flat painting frustrations and take your paintings to the next level.
