Decision time

Received an e-mail from a friend who posed this question "How do we decide" this is in regards to selecting who to take lessons from, what style artist do we prefer and want to try and emulate.  I told her to look around her home and she would…

Help with 'Photos Stickers & Effects'

Posted on January 21, 2012 at 14:37 8 Comments

Hope you can help me with this........... Richard says "You will find that you can actually crop your image on this website once your image is uploaded: just view your image, hold the mouse over the image and then click on 'Photos Stickers & Effects' in the top right corner of your image, then choose 'Crop'. You can also change the contrast and things like that to get it looking a little closer to your original painting." I have tried to use this cute little thing and when I tried to…

The best thing I have done for myself in many years is to join Richard Robinson's Online Workshop. No more putting it off I am learning how to paint. My attempts at age 73 are kindergarten level but at least I am finally in school and applying paint to canvas. 


Thank you Richard and all members who encourage me!. .…

Hello everyone. Thanks Richard for your lessons. I am a newbie want-to-be artist. This is a photo taken of the beach where I live. Sometime soon I hope to be able to paint this. When I do I will share my work. Dorian aka/dor

Thank you Dorian for the warm welcome. Now that the holidays are over I am really looking forward to exploring the website...there's so much going on!

I agree with you that Richard is a wonderful teacher and artist and he truly wants to help blooming artist come into their own. I just love his style of painting, the brush strokes, the beautiful colors, he truly is very knowledgable and talented, plus he has a great personality to boot!

I love the beach photo above, and you have some wonderful and eye catching paintings yourself!

Looking forward to being a part of a very exciting website.

Diane :)

HI Dorian thank you for your friendship , love the beach photo , I am looking at several feet of snow right now in my yard.

Hello Dorian,  I don't understand why you say for me to "Tag" my painting.  I did, and I still don't know why Richard didn't add it to the Gallery.  I tagged it the same as before, and the other two were critiqued in the IA magazine.  Richard hasn't responded to my message or email.  Confounded.
