Richard, an honest question.. you have over 700 members, but why can we only see a small handful of artists?  How do you keep up with so many?   Maybe they don't all paint?

Oh, I love the one I am missing this month, it's not too late to join, right?  I love perspective.  But looking forward to something different as well, thanks for all your hard work!

Hi Richard, was wondering if there is going to be a Workshop 40 for January and what is the theme about?  Maybe you will change from scenery to a different subject such as animals,etc...??

Hi Richard 

I love the boat painting.  I am very drawn to pics with barns, animals, boats etc.. Don't get me wrong your landscapes are amazing but I like something in them. Like that pic you did with the volkswagon van and store and surfer.    Do you have any lessons or anything that will help me paint something along those lines.  Beautiful!!

Richard I just got your e-mail about a question that Abbey wrote to you concerning "infused light".  On one of my sunset paintings I discovered WN Transparent White in safflower oil.  I used it for the very thin wispy clouds at the top of the painting. When you mix the transparent white with other colors it causes the other colors to lighten and become more transparent. I really enjoy it a lot.

What happened to being able to purchase 3 months of workshops at a time?

HI Richard, excellent video with 'Colour In Your Life', bravo! When I visit your websites (other than this one) they come up blank and say "forbidden" (yikes :-)) Any thoughts? Really, if you say your websites are all okay, then I'll know its a glitch some where out in the digital ether. For example, is website okay? Thanks, Nancy
