    1. thanks. I did decide to go on one of his painting courses here in the UK but then found out he’d emigrated to the United States so I was a bit gutted! Never mind, I’ll just have to keep watching his videos. I often put subtle figures in my paintings. There are examples in some of the videos. Thanks for watching.

    2. Oftentimes, when I paint from a picture or from real life, I have a hard time keeping it simple. I start looking for the perfect colors and shapes, add too many details, and in doing so tend to get a painting that looks “stiff”, if you will. I like painting more freely like you do, so can you give some tips as to how to do that? How to just go with it and not focus so much on every object you see from the source? Thanks in advance!

    3. I had exactly the problem you describe, as indeed I’m sure many others have also. Then I discovered Ron Ranson’s teaching methods and his fast and loose technique. He describes how to paint loosely, distilling the scenes and just picking out the main shapes and colours. You’ll see his books on eBay or Amazon and I’d recommend buying a couple. Hope this helps. Any questions, don’t hesitate to ask. Best of luck.
