Thanks Jackie. This is a good lesson on how we should allow our colors to mix optically and not rub them into a dull and lifeless state in order to achieve smoothness.

Thank you, Jackie. The only thing I missed was mentioning different surfaces or dry underpainting. I find no blending method really interesting on sanded papers, but I am not that ecstatic about it on Canson. Although Les Darlow does wonderful sunsets on rough side of Canson and doesn't need to blend. :)

I will check other video demos from her.
