However, not many people paint on vibrant coloured canvas.…

Improving your painting with glazes

Question:  I purchased a workshop on an Italian village scene and now do not know how to access it. 

Any help?

Thanks

Hi Richard, I just received my copy of the International Artist Magazine and was so excited to see my painting "At the Beach" in this issue. What an opportunity you offer us when you critique our work. I thank you again for your gentle encouraging critique.

Thank you Richard. Yes always exciting to sell something you work so hard on and actually get to meet the person who bought it. When the gallery sells you never meet the person.

Hi Richard.  Thank you for taking the time to leave me such a nice comment on my painting, The Fall Stream.  It means a lot to me that  you would do this.  Roena

Hi Richard,  

You probably already know all this, but I got this very good article on copyright free photos in my in-box from Art Tutor.  Here is the link:

I don't know how to share it on this website but I think lots of the members would be interested.  

Cheers,

Tammy

Hi Richard.  Trying to wing your workshop in San Francisco.  Hope to see you there.  I was wondering if I could go back and look at previous workshops and join and do them?  I was sure I found it once and I think it was like 10 dollars.  But can't figure out how to find it????  Also,  bought the paints you suggested but having some problems.  Could you e-mail me or get back to me so we can have a private talk about them....
