Great stuff, Noah! I've been following your work for some years now, and you've made some really inspiring paintings throughout the years. It seems like you're really into this romantic and dramatic scenery, so I figured I would mention some Norwegian national-romantic landscape painters (yes, they're are dead :)) in case you haven't heard about them; Adolph Tidemand, Hans Gude, Johan Christian Dahl, Peder Balke and August Cappelen (among others). Keep up the good work!

This is amazing. I'm colorblind, but still not far off when I do colorpick (at least sometimes). Is the advice that "you'll see more colors" and be more accurate true for colorblind people? Also how in the heck is Bradley doing the side by side in photoshop? Is this a video edit?

Love how you uncover that the sun lighting is completely reversed in one landscape yet looks right except for the sun placement behind.

Great idea. I don't think we did Master Studies in my 3 years in a BFA. So sad. This would have been major help to get to good composition.

wow Noah every time I hear you speak when I am drawing you inspire me to become better. You have a soothing voice I love watching your videos and I am going to lay of the games and draw more. Thank you for sharing your knowledge :) greetings from Belgium if I would ever meet you in real life I would give you chocolates from Belgium!
Blake Thoennes (1 year ago)
I'm curious if also studying from (concept) artists with these methods would help improve my skills as well and maybe focus the concept art style a little more or if only doing master studies is the way to go?
Kevin Lee (1 year ago)
Hey Noah great vids. Would you be so kind and share your sketch brush and paint brush you used in the tutorial? Thanks

It would really help if the black/white grey scale is as bid as the original. I find myself squinting just following the grey scale. I got out of the tutorial out of frustration. Also, you overstate thr obvious, too much repetition. We are beginners, but intelligent.

boitahaki (1 year ago)
Noah, I love your videos and this is extremely useful! I do disagree however with the part about "filters", there are a lot of overrated and underrated classic painters and modern painters, its all a matter of consuming and analizing a lot of great work and developing your eye to filter the greatest from the great by yourself.
Ivan Ivanov (1 year ago)
I don't get the color study preview. What exactly are you trying to achieve here? Colour relations? Because it's not exact colours you paint with, for the most part they are totally wrong in fact. Or is it because of bad reproductions you were talking about and you know from the memory what colours were there on an art piece and trying to adjust for this factor?
mcnulty (1 year ago)
damn so much knowledge in this video, thank you noah
Silke Schümann (1 year ago)
57:00 The sky is eggshell and not peach. In order to check whether my brain is tricking me I used my hand to look through a peep hole and pan across the image. This way the neighboring colors don't confuse my brain.

I was reading your article on 21 days, and I finally realized that I've seen your video on master studies before. I'm currently 19 and living with my parents and working 5-6 hours a day drawing and studying. I intend to eventually ramp it up to 10 hours a day. Thanks for all of the help and direction you're providing me. I don't want to blow loads of money for no good reason.

what brushes are you using? I bought kyle brushes and now I have 160 brushes with no idea which one to use for these paintings

It's like asking which pen are you using because your grammar looks amazing. Only practice and patience will.
ShadowMurlock (2 years ago)
then what will because im stuck at week one because the paintings just turn out terrible and now i'm losing confidence in this.
Conduitt (2 years ago)
Brushes won't make you better at art. They can enhance the painting but don't get too hung over them, most pros use default brushes.
Spesifik Brush (2 years ago)
Thanks for sharing this! I l was having real frustrations about choosing colors and values, now I will definitely do master studies. I wish I had the money to get your courses, but I am thinking to save money for it. Keep up the good work!

Even though you said its good to study old artists, is it still possible to study new artists? The style im inspired by is from 1996-Present day

Hi Noah, thanks for this video, just wondering if you are using s special brush for digital painting or you are just using the default brushes. Can I also ask if you are using Photoshop?

Protip : watch tutorials at 1.5 or 2x speed for hour long tutorials like this, really helps when you watch 5-6 hours straight of theses

this is a bad idea its called week 1 for a reason.

yeah, doesnt work for everyone, but I like it to keep me focused
Noldy (2 years ago)
I should try that.

what I do usually is practise while listening to it like a podcast

Do people really retain anything watching that many hrs straight? I applaud those who can though. Cause I can't.

Does anyone else notice that the Moran landscape looks a lot like a Optimus portrait?  The lines are very similar.  :)

If you ever get a chance to get to Oklahoma City. They had the best collection of Thomas Moran I have ever seen. Must have been over 30 pieces. Many of them I believe are permanent to its collection.
Lavellyn (3 years ago)
Hello Noah, I have a little question to you. My apologies if you said it before, but I'm first time at your channel. Can you please tell me, what brushes do you use and if there's a chance; give me links to download those? I'm asking because the brushes you used like when you painted those compositions seem really nice. Please, respond. And I'm sorry for my English. I'm learing. Have a nice day!
TheDeamonlord987 (3 years ago)
+Erik Siu well i searched them but you have to pay at least 1$, or am i missing something?
Erik Siu (3 years ago)
+Venus If you visit Noah's website at http://www.noahbradley.com/ he has the brush pack download at the bottom of the page. They are free (pay with a tweet)!
FernandoGYanesH (3 years ago)
Hey Noah, I just wanted to thank you for actually showing us how to go about studying the masters. I've been wanting to practice my art skills to get better, obviously, but had no idea where to begin or how to start practicing/learning. Definitely implementing this into my day-to-day basis! You rock.
TheSeventDoor (3 years ago)
will be great if someone explain how this study thing helps you exactly.
TheSeventDoor (2 years ago)
+MikeoWar thanks for such a reply
MikeoWar (2 years ago)
+TheSeventDoor Well, for one you'll become more aware of everything that's going on in art. Art is generally best when it's attractive on all levels: composition, values, proportion, perspective, colors, etc. So instead of inventing the wheel all over again, you can learn from your predecessors. And the more you learn, the better you'll be at critiquing yourself and breaking down your own art. It really is essential to do this kind of stuff. I guess you can compare it to learning guitar by yourself in a cave without ever listening to other music versus learning songs you like and letting it positively influence your own music.
TheSeventDoor (3 years ago)
OFC. I want to study the same way if i only know what exactly i will be doing.
Emmanuel Madail (3 years ago)
+TheSeventDoor listen to the whole video properly, he actually says quite often the things he's learning as he's studying.

Sharing this for free is well generous of you Noah!  I have gleaned so much out of this video and I am only about a third of the way through.  I am well enthusiastic to take your art camp courses!
Lync1111 (3 years ago)
Nice body of work Noah. On the landscape painting you mentioned something on the sun over to the lower left of the painting. I think it's more of a mountain back there. If you notice the mountain in the middle ground and how it's lit.  Thanks for these great videos. Cheers!
Alice Walsh (3 years ago)
The "sun" is very likely the moon. Living at the coast you see this when the moon is full meaning the sun is directly opposite the sun so is illuminated fully. You don't always get this effect but at certain times of the year there is an incredible moment where the two create incredible mood and light - it is a special and fleeting experience and this is a great study of that.
Alice Walsh (3 years ago)
+alice walsh yeah, so the lighting is right ;)

Randyrocker (3 years ago)
At the 22:29 point in your video of the Pyle staircase illustration, a point that was missed but would be useful to explain for compositional purposes is, that the two dark protruding bricks near the top created a triangle with the black rat on the bottom stair, this triangle helps the viewer with the downward thrust that's taking place inside of the picture plane. Pyle liked to use various devices to purposely move the eye around a picture, and it's good to point those out to those studying composition.

koolfoolable (3 years ago)
How do I find artists I like if I have no idea of any artists?
jhenriquez91 (3 years ago)
+koolfoolable Kool, I'd suggest you look at a art movements timeline, and just google them and you can take a pretty good sense of what that movement was about, for example if you want dark stuff, go Baroque, and Caravaggio is the masters of masters there. The romantics also have some high contrasts and epicness in their paintings.
Erik Siu (3 years ago)
+koolfoolable https://www.artrenewal.org is a great resource and mostly free. When you watch videos like these, the artist will usually mention the name of the particular master and you can look them up for more art references. Here's Thomas Moran's https://www.artrenewal.org/pages/artist.php?artistid=733&page=1
halomasterfs (3 years ago)
+koolfoolable take an art appreciations class, it helped me get know lots of artist.
Shelly Solomon Art (3 years ago)
If you check the description he actually lists quite a few good online galleries and resources.
Liz Scott (3 years ago)
Pinterest is a cool tool also. I know it sounds cliche but it worked for me. You can just browse through tons of artwork and then find pieces you like, google those artists, and find your style. Then you can assemble these pieces together into one place and always go back there when you're in a rut or if you need inspiration.

Excuse me, I would like to know if you have any websites in which you can find good compositional and color references like those ones. I'm really new at doing this studies and I don't reall find a lot of artist that are nice.
Rebekah (4 years ago)
These are incredibly useful vids sir. I know I am probably in the minority here, but for me a peeve of online coursework or demos is that people seem to feel the need to talk all the time. It is OK to talk some and then just have folks watch you work. The constant explanation takes away from the experience and I think distracts the full engagement of our mirror neurons, but I guess that is what people want if they buy a course, to feel like the teacher is working to explain everything. Some talk, some do is better but thanks for posting I just turned the sound off to watch again.

Bisilius yamastakoRadn (4 years ago)
does some1 could explain why he draws tiny thumbnails as a copy of the images on the left side.??? that's a way he practise to control the composition at 1st  of every artwork or the left images are his old artworks that he made and now he explain the way he build them ???
Ehehe (4 years ago)
I believe it's to focus on tone/composition so you don't get caught up on details.
Darren Berkey (4 years ago)
36:00 - The "sun" in the background is actually most likely a building (or at least that's what it looks like to me), obscured by the atmosphere, with a light colored dome/roof that is reflecting direct sunlight coming from behind the artist's viewpoint, just as the lighting in the rest of the scene would indicate.
shot040 (4 months ago)
it's also probable that the sun moved throughout the time the artist was painting. You can see the fore most person's cast shadow does reflect the light on the building though.

HI Noah, when you say Golden Age paintings, are you referring to the Dutch Golden Age? Cheers,
V MA (4 years ago)
He's referring to the Golden Age of  American Illustration. 
Andrew Robinson (4 years ago)
I believe he's referring to Golden Age Illustrators, such as Norman Rockwell and Dean Cornwell, they had to focus on composition so their images would read fast.

This video is very informative and a nice way to begin learning - I'm at a beginner stage such as this and also in a situation where I just about can get through my months money-wise, so I have no means to pay a lot for lessons and such. Thank you very much for this contribution, Noah! PS. If anyone would recommend what Photoshop version, brushes (and their settings) and other things one should get familiar with as a beginner, I'd be much obliged!
