    HI Julianna --- I went on line and had a look at the NixPlay. I haven't heard of them before. I would be interested in checking it out a bit more further down the line, but at the moment I am flat out just coping with the basics.  I am about to start painting but still have a few more things to do. Today a friend went to a glass shop and had a couple of glass palettes made, 25" x 15", good size but unfortunately the glass is slightly tinted green! So annoying.  I will have to figure out how to cope with this..... Anyway, thanks again  Kind regards  Dianna

    Hi Roxy --- I went online to find out what a NixPlay is.  It looks interesting but as I'm still deep into the preparation side of painting -- I haven't picked up a paintbrush yet in relation to Mark's Method --- I'm actually a bit terrified because I've never painted Alla Prima and I've no idea if I will take to it or not.  But never mind.....   Thanks again for replying and I will keep your advice in mind for the future...  Kind regards  Dianna

    Hi rob -- thanks for your response.  I do have a color printer but I only buy the cheap cartridges because the proper ones are about $450 each --- too expensive for me.  Very exciting to hear you are getting ready for an exhibition -- fabulous!    Who is Denis?  I have another question for someone who is technically good.  I will post the question and see who responds.  Thank you again   Dianna  PS: Must be freezing down there at the moment!  Whereabouts in Tassie are you?

  • Switching from acrylic to MC's method. Got studio/shadow box all set up and waiting for canvas and essential paints to arrive. Kodiak, AK has no art supply store so online shopping is the only  way. I am anxious to start.😎

  • I have a question, Several years back (5 +/-) I wanted to try oil painting i had been using acrylic prior, so i bought 20+ large tubes of windsor newton - winton paints. i found oil painting to difficult to set up and clean, so i stopped and went back to acrylics. about 6 months ago i tried oils again and i really enjoy them. The outside of the paint tubes are very sticky with some goo on the tubes. to clean them with turps would take a long time and i will live with the sticky but was wondering if something like baby powder might stop the sticky. has anyone ever tried?

  • I've been painting daily for 15 years. My prior passion was wood working which i did for 35 years. I love painting  but don't fall into Mark's methods as I am extremely poor at taking instructions.I can't say enough about mak's videos. what a generous competent person.

    For some reason, My introduction appeared more then four times in the forum. Can you remove the most of them?
    Thanks.

    Last week I bought new digital tablet Wacom Intuos S and digital pen Wacom MDP 123. This gear is really great, but I need to work hard for learn more techniques of digital painting. I like paint characters of different games, for examples, Final Fantasy or The Elder Scrolls. Maybe I will work on my personal video game project one day. Thanks !
