  1. Have been watching some of your lessons this evening Never even thought of using oil paint straight out of the tube without mixing it with medium. Thank you so much for this lesson

    • I am not able to download the ebook or the video lessons. It seems as if it has downloaded but when I look in downloads on finder there is nothing there, it looks as if it has downloaded when I click it but it is not on my computer. I have a new Apple pro so it is up to date. I really need to be able to watch it offline as I cannot always use the internet. I have just joined and have paid in full….sorry if there is a different link that I should put this on. I do like your lessons but really need to download them.

  2. Hello and with a joyful thank you for your creative and comprehensive teachings. This is my first lesson and I did it!!!! On to the next.

    So excited!

  3. I just finished the oil painting lesson 5, blending the oil paints. I am so pleased with how well my painting turned out! It is so much better than I could have done without the video guidance.

  4. It’s so much easier learning painting skill from seeing it done like that in a video rather than trying to learn from books which don’t have the same impact. This site feels like having your own personal tutor each lesson. Wonderful!
