Lost and Found Edges

Posted on July 1, 2015 at 17:30 3 Comments

This month's workshop focuses partly on Lost and Found Edges which to me is one of the real beauties of working with oil paints - that you can soften off or completely lose an edge whilst leaving others sharply focused, adding an air of mystery and romance to a painting.

Here's the painting we're working with:

"Old Timers" 13 x 13" Oil on Canvas by Richard Robinson.

Been painting this out on the deck for a couple of days. Boy did I feel rusty! I must have repainted that apple about 20 times. A great painter I recently met in California named Anne…

I'm very happy to release this month's new online workshop and demo video at http://www.livepaintinglessons.com/workshop41.php

This has taken quite some study and I found it exciting to follow Monet's footsteps through Venice (virtually), discovering the history there and to be…

I signed up for your demo on the "Lost edges" "Old Timers.  I paid for the demo, but, can't find where I can downloadit.  Where do I find the screen that tells me to download.  All I see is how to join and pay again.  Thanks  Lois

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....

Hi, Richard, Just for your information, about my problem of that I do not receive any emails from the Complete Artist, I found all the emails were in the Spam. I do not know why this happened. And I have to figure out how to stop them go to Spam.  

At the same time, I hope that if other students have the same problem of can not see the emails from this web, It is good idea first check our Spam. Just in case it is not the problem of the web but our own problems. 

Richard, thank you again for trying to help me.

Thank you for the DVDS!! I received them today and am looking forward to jumping in and learning more! The lessons are really sinking in and I am so grateful to you for providing this venue! Happy painting:))

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?

At 8:37 on January 7, 2015, Sharon Casavant said…

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!

At 16:11 on January 6, 2015, Sharon Casavant said…

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...??
