How to make an under painting
After more than 10 years of studying painting (and the past 5 years being a certified copyist in the Louvre museum) I’ve created this video to help you learn how to make an under painting. Techniques methods and the materials of old masters. In this video I also open my studio and show the stages it took me to create the painting "sacrifice of the virgins in gie ben hinom". With this video you can learn to use the traditional methods of old masters to create your own original paintings.

close up's and details of the auto portrait
I usually don’t like to speak instead of my paintings, I believe the painting should transcend visually what the painter wants to say, but I will point out a few anecdotes that are important to me: - I was born in Israel a country that lives by the sword and dies by it, the intensity and cultural dichotomy that exists there is profound. As a child growing up in a mixed culture that resented each other (the west and the East) had tremendous impact on me, it is prevalent everywhere in Israel but even at the micro level of my individual life, my father is an Israeli with Iraqi roots and my mother was an American white women with western European roots, it was hard for me to find my own identity as an adolescent and even today as an adult I have problems to bridge the cultural gaps within myself and not to mention in my torn country. But fortunately I think I found a way (to bridge the gaps) and harmonize the duality, thanks to the fact that I am a painter and artist, in the creation of art there is room for every culture, this is why I made this auto portrait, I wanted to capture myself as a product of mixt cultures and as living proof that dualities, deferent religions , different cultures and races can coexist in harmony and piece and even create something beautiful, a work of art. -the painting has Items that symbolize the 3 main monotheistic religions in my homeland Israel, Tphilin for Judaism a Keffiyeh for Islam and hammer and nails for Christianity. -I made this auto portrait in my new country of residence France , I moved here 2 years ago and I felt a bit alien to the country, but it offered me a new way to see my country of origin, and since my studio is surrounded by immigrants I felt this painting is also relevant to them and our situation as outsiders. #oilpainting #fineart #art #paris #samrachamin
