    What was the way to spell the name of the artist that did all Rub Out technique? It’s mentioned in Chapter 12 video 3.

    Hi! I couldn`t catch the name of the red tone on video 7. Could anyone let me know what tone of red he uses?

    Did you try enabled Closed Captions? Often that’s the best way to catch the spelling. If not, I can look into this for you.

    Are you using straight solvent to dilute the background?

    in the lesson before for the rub out technique steve says you can use whatever color you want. And he didnt use solvent for the first layer auf color on the canvas. Now he uses much solvent and only transparent color without saying a word ?

    Hi Maximilian,
    I reached out to our education team and they say this
    “we are working on a reformatted version of the course that will have a downloadable materials list that they can use you gather all the materials needed for the course before hand.”
    “To answer the  student’s question on the Rub Out technique. What Steve meant by “completely transparent” is that the color shouldn’t have any white mixed into it. He also said “the paint you buy, the earth tones you paint from
    that come out of the tube that you get from Windsor Newton or Gamblin – are fine.” As so students can feel free to use the burnt sienna they own. Sometimes artists would use more vibrant colors to tone the canvas but we don’t recommend it to beginner or intermediate levels. Since it’s harder to judge the values if they are overwhelmed by the intensity of the chroma ”
    “n term of solvent,  we will work on improving the footage to be more consistent between the 2 lessons. however, you can feel free to experiment with adding or not adding solvent while toning the canvas. Both have their benefits. While a dry surface might be more sticky and easier to control when they do the rub out, a wetter surface can be more fluid when it comes to rendering the forms”
