Observations and thoughts about the fine art of painting

Finally . . . I have copies of my new DVD for sale!
Two weeks ago, I was in Concord, California conducting a weekend drawing workshop under the auspices of the California Watercolor Association. I taught the "Six Universal Skill Sets of Drawing". Its a drawing workshop for beginner drawers, and at the end of the weekend, they were drawing all sorts of things with a skill and accuracy they didn't have before. The fifth universal skill set is "Value Control". Value control is the foundation for any competent drawing or painting. I have a DVD that I show here in my blog's side bar and that I produced earlier this year. "Portraiture In Payne's Gray" demonstrates value control through watercolor painting. It runs one hour, fourteen minutes and sells for $50.00 ($5 for postage and handling within the USA). On the DVD's back box cover is a recommendation from Nicholas Simmons, the internationally renowned American watercolor artist (click on the photo to enlarge for easier readability). If you are interested in purchasing "Portraiture in Payne's Gray", please contact me at: email@example.com. I might add that the DVD also shows my watercoloring techniques from start to finish in real time with detailed medium and close up shots.
