Lesson Discussion

    • The first few applications were applied wet into “damp”. The surface wasn’t completely saturated. Typically, I’ll apply wet into wet applications early in the process before working mostly wet over dry. I hope this helps.

  1. I have a problem with the downloaded video it is playing in black & white & hard to follow if you are painting in colour. Can you explain why the downloaded video is playing in black & white and not colour. Ive downloaded it twice with same results.

    • Hi Barbara,

      The downloaded video file is in color. Be sure that you are downloading the HD 720p version and not the original file. The original file is very large. What player are you using to play the video once it’s downloaded?

      • You were very prompt at replying to my comment. Windows Media Player is what I used not sure which file I downloaded and have since switched to a different video player and everything is back to colour once more. thank you. I am really enjoying the lessons & courses you have provided.

  2. I got the Cotman 12 pan set – which doesn’t have Gamboche or Prussian Blue. What I should I do when I don’t have the colors you’re using? I’m very beginner.
    Loving this course!

    • Hi Lexie,

      You can use Cadmium Yellow with a touch of Burnt Umber or Yellow Ochre in place of Gamboge Hue. You can also use Phthalo Blue in place of Prussian Blue. I hope this helps.
