I found this forum after discovering the DrawMixPaint videos on YouTube. I love the way Mark teaches, it's so straightforward and the videos are a good mix of everything. Some of the points he's very keen on like value first and not blending have been really helpful…over blending is my Achilles heel!
I've being doing art my whole life and have been painting with oils off and on for about 10 yrs. I love some of the old masters like Corot (my favourite) and Manet and I absolutely love still life paintings. I lived in Europe for quite awhile and was able to go to the museums all the time so that's where my love for them started.
I look forward to being on this forum and contributing what I can. It seems like there's a good range of discussions and people...
