Re: Memories from the beach on Organza (Structured)

Believe me, Manju....I understand working in isolation. That's all we as artists had prior to the advent of the internet, and living in a national forest in the northwoods of Wisconsin a couple hours from a larger city, chances of even getting together with art groups and artists was remote. Much I learn was entering competitions, getting what I could from critiques from judges, asking artists at events, exhibitions...and why I felt so strongly about Wetcanvas when I first joined in with a half-dozen others...before we had more than about a half-dozen forums, less than a thousand members, and before we were called moderators.

Then I helped create eight forums I moderated, including this one...up until I retired this past year...about twelve years.

I understand that frustration banging the head on a table top...but, the artist starting out today..with so great a wealth of information online to access. Oh...if I could start over, I'd probably shave off a good number of difficult years!

The last series I did for F&W was on foundations and principles of painting, getting into composition and design the first session...and that five session series will be available very soon from F&W (North Light Books) and owners of Wetcanvas.

I'll be focusing on my way of working with gouache the next series starting around the end of February...video step by step, on series painting outdoors in winter using glycerin to keep paint from freezing...one on painting portraits...the last on my old methods of painting with acrylics back in my competitive wildlife years to the more painterly methods now...and a bit on watercolor. Wet media...

I'll probably then do one specifically on oils...down the road, who knows.

Registration information will be posted in the Wetcanvas Partner Live forums when it starts. Those registered for the first series already will get an email from F&W notifying artists...
