The importance of shapes

Posted on January 14, 2016 at 13:00 4 Comments

The other day I had an email from an art teacher in Uganda asking that I critique some student work - ages 10 and 11.

Here's what I wrote:

Hello class, your teacher has asked me to critique some paintings for you. That’s a pretty cool teacher because he bugged me for you until I said yes. Good job teacher!



Let me say first that each and every artist has their own idea of what…

Lost and Found Edges

Posted on July 1, 2015 at 17:30 2 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.

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.
