    1. Thank you for such a kind reply. I actually frittered away my artistic talents, lo these many years after private lessons and group lessons throughout my teen years and an art minor–(I lacked the confidence to ever declare myself an ‘artist’). Now, at 48, I want to get back into it. I’m starting with an art journal and hoping it leads to finding my artistic merit somewhere.

    2. Hello Redsoxfan, My work sells in a gallery for about 250, but I sell on line for quite a bit less as the gallery impose their charges. Thanks for the comment, one other point I can help with is, I tend to finish a painting within an hour at the most, as I find it gives a fresher finish and makes sure you don’t over work, if you plan it well, it is achievable.

    6. Generally shading on water or sky would be done by spraying area lightly with fine mist water, making sure to take off any excess with paper towel and then add the shading or colour as desired, this makes sure there are no hard edges and the blend is softer. hope this helps. If you wet the paper with brush it will drag colour and make the whole painting messy.
