Hi everyone, I am fairly new at painting. For 3 years now I have been following along with the Bob Ross videos and have completed about 50 paintings. I have received a lot of positive feedback and have actually framed and given away as gifts several paintings. I never felt however that I was creating real art and it didn't feel right when I signed my name to a painting. I found DMP and decided to give it a try. I am pleased with my first attempt at realism considering it was done in a very makeshift way. I am now in the process of building my studio to Mark's exact specifications and plan on following his technique to the letter. Please disregard the lettering on the book. I just wanted to finish the painting so I could hurry up and start building my new studio. Stay safe!
