Getting your materials out and painting is the only way to learn to paint. You can watch videos all day long, but if you don't fire up your brain into active learning mode you're just going to have a bunch of theory that you can't apply properly.
Fire up your painting program of choice, grab a mirror and do a self portrait.
Once you slog through the absolute basics for a while, then you can start benefiting more from videos. At the beginning learning stages you're just going to be in over your head.
