I have been replacing my hard drive all week and found that I no longer have the videos for the Master Color Class. I have the notes for some reason, but can't find the videos. Does anyone know if I can get copies or a link somehow?

Painting without Fear

Normally I don't fiddle with my plein air work in the studio afterwards, but in this case I'd done such an awful job of the cow that I decided to remedy it in the studio that same night while the paint was still wet. That's the second image you can see there - much better cow, no? The next day (yesterday) I showed the painting to my painting buddy John Crump and he…

I think it's from twisting around all the time to see the views here. There's quite literally a painting around every corner.

When you move to a new area…

Interactive Acrylic

I love you style of painting!  I am going to use the interactive acrylics to paint when I am traveling.  I would like to know if you are using them in any of your demonstrations and if so do you use them as you would oils.  I see that these acrylic paints were listed in your lists for materials.

Early snow.

Tried this painting of early snow.  I don't think I spent enough time thinking about it before painting.  I tend to alter things as I go.  Not ideal !
