Free Acrylic Painting Lessons On Youtube: Art Supplies

In this video by Lachri Fine Art, she goes over in detail about her favorite art supplies starting from canvas and all the way to easels.

She also explains why it’s important to use only the quality art supplies even if you are just at the beginning of your learning.

And the difference between good quality and cheap bargain art supplies’ performance.

There is one more Art Supplies Video I wanted to mention, and this one is by Kaatydid Art.

It’s a little longer than the previous one, but I really appreciate that she shows all of them one by one, opens some up ad so on.

So if you’ve got the time it’s also a great one to look at.

Free Acrylic Painting Lessons On Youtube: Tips

In this section I’ve combined videos that are sort of quick wins.

Where you can listen to the tip and implement it right away for a better painting result!



Free Acrylic Painting Lessons On Youtube: Techniques

In this category we are talking techniques!

I recommend learning 1 technique at a time, and then implementing it.

The truth is, we can only remember so much at once. So, by practicing the technique you learn it and keep it in your long-term memory.

And then you can come back and learn another technique.

This way you can just keep going until you learned them all.

And only then you know what you prefer and what works best for you 🙂

Good luck!


Free Acrylic Painting Lessons On Youtube: Follow Along

In this category I’ve combined videos that are pretty long!

But the purpose and the beauty of them is that you can follow along no problem.

It’s almost as if you were inside a classroom with a professor 🙂

So buckle up and find the time to go through them.

I believe they will help you out greatly!

P.S. if you don’t have the time to watch them right now, you can always share this article on social media or save a Pin to Pinterest so you can reffer back to it when you do have the time.

Free Acrylic Painting Lessons On Youtube: Time Lapse

I absoulutely love watching time lapses!

I think they are great for inspiration especially. So, when I feel down and not inspired – I often go on YouTube and just watch some cool speed painting videos.

It always gets me motivated to go and create something of my own!

They are also great for learning new tips or coming up with topics for your next painting.

Have fun!

I hope you enjoyed the list of tutorials!

If you have any topics in mind that you would like me to cover, feel free to leave them in the comment section down below 🙂


As always, good luck on Your Art Path!
