I've been painting for years but am largely self taught. I've had plenty of success getting what's in my head onto the canvas, but it always feels like a struggle. I've only had limited instruction and have never seen such a clear presentation of methodology. I finished my first painting today and am thrilled with how calm I feel afterwards. No internal struggles. Thanks, Mark for clear tutorials. I currently live in South America, but when I move back to Texas I would love to take some classes from you. This painting is from the Cocora Valley of Colombia- one of my favorite places in the country.
