I just completed the first block study for Workshop 31.  Richard, I have to tell you how much I appreciate this particular lesson.  I always wondered how artists achieved that layered effect with color.  I thought it was exclusively through glazing, but you have showed us exactly how it is done.  Obviously, it's not  a simple process.  There are so many decisions to be made.  One you always decide on the colors to use by selecting colors right next to the foundation color, or do you at times skip around the color wheel?

I thoroughly enjoyed the interview and put up a note on my page with the link!! Your statements about having the confidence to charge a decent amount really hit home!! My background was actually pretty DIScouraging re art and unfortunately ( well, not..I do love my work and believe it was all in the plan) I just got back to art in the last few years.. Your workshops are a great learning tool and the community you created here couldn't be more supportive!! Thanks so much for sharing your journey and providing an avenue for growth:)

Where do I find the interview?  btw, Richard, now that I see both photos of my slice together , I think the one closest to my original is GP Hats.

I saw your interview with Kathryn Lloyd.  It was most enjoyable and made me like you even more than I already do.  You are a nice guy Richard!  I am so proud of  you and your well deserved success. I am so pleased to know you. Roena

Richard - just watched your interview with Kathryn Lloyd - it was great! I am sure a lot of people will be inspired and encouraged when they hear it. Proud to be a fellow kiwi.

Hey Richard,

Just got word Cathy Dillinger isn't able to do her slice..if it's up for grabs I'd love the chance to do it!

Hi Richard,

Your web site needs a little work. When I came into the Complete Artist, Group Painting, I found the slice I was assigned was 26. When I looked it up, it did not agree with the partial picture at the bottom of the site, and the slice was already done, not based on number, but on picture. Thus, I have no idea what you want, and I can not do it at this time.
