Selling art

I've done a couple of workshop pictures for my own interest and learning. A couple of people have expressed interest in buying one of them but I'm not sure if I'm allowed to do that since they are actually Richard's pictures/compositions. Can someone clarify this for me? Thanks

 Hello again Margo.  Retirement has given me the opportunity to do something I've always wanted to do and that is paint.  Started out 6 yrs ago with acrylics and then oils, 6 months each.  Tried watercolors and I was hooked...  So I've been messing around with watercolors for 5 yrs.  Started scratch art 5 months ago..  It's a giant learning experience..  I love learning and the thrill of seeing physical improvement...  What an ego boost...  How long have you been painting?    Chuck  :)   XX

Hi Margo,  Glad you found it interesting.  I've really been taken by scratch art.  And started doing commission Pet Portraits.  I've also started teaching classes on scratch art also... hahahhahahaha    and I'm retired... :)   Chuck :)  XX

Hello Margo,  Thank you for the kind words about my "Rainbow" scratch..  I am loving this medium and the ability to be as detail as I please!  :)   Doing work for people of their pets is a wonderful thing, giving them lasting memories of, basically, members of the family.  So I try to pay attention to details.   The fine lines are achieved by using a very fine and sharp tipped tool to do the scratching with.  As for the color, I scratch the entire piece first and them apply a light coat of watercolor paint.  When dry I scratch again and then another coat of w/c paint.  I do this, depending on the work, 3-4 scratches and 2-3 paint applications.  Last scratch is to do highlights and eyes..  I hope this helps..  I started painting 6 yrs ago and scratch art 5 months ago.  

Thanks again, Chuck  :)  XX

Oh good Margo,

On the right side of the main screen under ONLINE WORKSHOP it says PHOTOS.  Then go to View All, and then do a search for " Workshop37 "  Just type the words like that and not the " ".  You can see Richard Robinson's (RR) paintings and last time I looked there had been others already finishing a painting and posting too. If you join just one online workshop from then on RR will send a e-mail so you can look at the next WS and see if you are interested.  You can at least see the reference and the RR painting and read. There is a lot of nice people here on this site I think.  Glad to have you as a friend here.  Roena
