This is my try at setting up to work with the new DVDs. I put the easel in front of the desk with my monitor. Then I put a little tray table on the right to use as a taboret ( to hold the palette, brushes & paints). I keep having to pause the DVD since the instructor goes fast and skips over stuff. I couldn't keep up, but I thought the experiment came out o.k. I am just using inexpensive canvas paper for now. I have some canvas boards too, so when I get a bit better, I'll use those. Close up of clouds picture below. It is done over an earlier exercise with a graded wash.
I have lots of photos from our hikes over the years. As I learn more, I hope to make paintings from those photos and many of them have clouds. This exercise was on DVD 2 - skies. The link to the Acrylic Painting Secrets, Bob Davies website is in April 21st post.
