Hebrides and Oils over Acrylics - Woodland Lake:
Of course you know I love
your work but I really enjoyed listening to you talk to your
audience! I learned so many tips (like the cheap wet acrylic
palate and freezing the oil colors, and on and on.)
Love this video!
I just wanted to let you know how much I enjoy and learn from your wonderful
videos. I never really had the opportunity to study art although I began
painting and trying to learn on my own back in my college days. After
many years in the insurance industry and our daughters graduating college
I changed professions and began teaching which allowed me the time to
pursue my love of painting which I had so long neglected. A few years
ago I began an earnest pursuit of learning how to draw and paint taking
one medium at a time. I have always been a great admirer of the impressionists
and have wanted to learn how they created such beautiful artwork.
Recently, I discovered your amazing videos while trying to learn watercolor
techniques and began to study them as I would a textbook. We live in an
area of the United States (the State of West Virginia) where there are
few artists and little opportunity for art lessons. I am so thankful for
the internet and the opportunity to learn from someone like you. At age
57 years old, I now have more opportunity to learn to create artwork than
ever. Your videos offer great motivation for me; not only to produce excellent
artworks but also to pursue a way of life that sees and appreciates beauty.
I very much admire how you approach all your artwork from the large canvasses
to the Christmas cards, wire geese, etc.
Our family lives only two states away from North Carolina where you made
those beautiful Appalachian videos and if you return there I would drive
down there just to meet and learn from you. Hopefully in a few years when
my wife and I retire I can travel to Lincolnshire to tour your beautiful
gardens and learn from you there.
Thank you again for your wonderful videos from which I continue to learn
so much about art and life.
