Viviana Pouget September 1, 2022 at 3:26 pmLog in to Reply Hi Shanna, In your concept lesson on oak trees you used a rubber stick to scrap out thin limbs. It is not in your or Elizabeth’s material list. What is it and where can I get it. Thanks Vivians October 14, 2020 at 5:32 amLog in to Reply can we see a close up of the make up applicator you use to lift? Can’t see it on Amazon . Is it sponge? November 14, 2020 at 10:53 pmLog in to Reply Hi I am very new to painting and struggling to find a course that I can follow “step by step” to learn. I’m no artist, but want to learn. I am a medical specialist and have no free time for myself . I’m going to try out your free “two” painting videos and see how I do. I however have a good feel about your coarse and looking forward to see how it goes Shanna Kunz November 15, 2020 at 11:22 amLog in to Reply Hello Cornel! Starting to paint is very scary! It takes courage to jump into something new and develop confidence. Jump in with both feet and just get the paint down to the canvas. Always remember you are exploring, researching, playing and don’t get expectations of perfection too soon (I know, easier said than done). Start with a limited palette. This coming month I will be demonstrating a limited palette painting. It takes a bit of struggle out of color mixing and let’s you explore the paint, the drawing, the process. Start with a Titanium white, an Alizarin Crimson, an Ultramarine Blue, a cad yellow light, a burnt sienna and a black of some sort. I actually don’t use black, but most do. And be sure and look for the color theory classes on the course,they will help. Do you draw much? That is always a great help for perspective, form, and composition. Let us know if we can help as you go! RaNae Jessop February 5, 2021 at 12:27 pmLog in to Reply For years I have wanted to paint. Years ago I took one class using oil paint so I am a beginner. Lately I have worked with watercolor. When I see your expanding lists of lessons, etc. I don’t know where to start! Could you suggest the first five or six lessons or videos to get started with. I so admire your works and want to dive into this! Elizabeth Robbins February 7, 2021 at 8:55 amLog in to Reply RaNae, We suggest starting with the concept lessons then watching the full length tutorial that goes with that concept lesson. The videos are listed by most recent first so if you scroll down to the last one that would be the first one I would suggest watching.

Steve Landreth October 23, 2021 at 9:54 amLog in to Reply Can you use water missable oil paints? Shanna Kunz October 23, 2021 at 10:15 amLog in to Reply Absolutely! The water missible paints have a medium as well that works like my neomegilp medium. After the painting dries, it is considered a full out oil painting and can be glazed just like any other oil painting. I suggest my good friend Lori McNee’s blog Fine Art Tips for more info on the Cobra line of paint. She covers anything you might need to know. Steve Landreth October 27, 2021 at 4:39 pmLog in to Reply Thanks Shanna, That’s great news on the water missable paints, I checked Lori’s site and looks like I can get her water mixable oil paints there and brushes on your site also. I’m going get one of your videos but before I do I have question, I watched your free video, wow what a beautiful job, but I noticed when you were mixing your paint and selecting different brushes there was no audible instruction, was this because this a free video and you do talk the student through the video step by step? Thank you! Shanna Kunz October 27, 2021 at 7:30 pmLog in to Reply Hi Steve! Yes, we give through instructions throughout ever video. We tell you the why of things as well as describe technique, color and composition. If you decide to give us a try, be sure and use VIPUPGRADE so you can watch it for $10 for the first full month. You can cancel at ANY time during the course, no contract to sign at all! We hope you enjoy!

I’ve been using Costco brand paper towels and it sometimes leaves a trail of lint all over my canvas when I tone/wipe with it. Leave A Comment Cancel replyYou must be logged in to post a comment.
