  1. WOW That’s so BEAUTIFUL 😻❀ AMAZING πŸ™ˆπŸ’— I really love this , as always β˜ΊοΈπŸ˜šπŸ’–
    Keep going dear you are so so so creative πŸ’πŸ™ŠπŸ’— I love you and your art so so so MUCH and I really enjoy it and learn a lot of things thank you so MUCH 😍πŸ₯°πŸ’β€πŸ’—β€πŸ’—β€πŸ’—β€

  2. Thank you so much! This was very helpful! If you are using the water soluble paint what do you do with the “fat over lean”…do you still use a medium when painting?

  3. A lovely painting. I don’t do oils myself – not yet anyway (one step at a time) but I really enjoy watching you paint in oils, as you seem so relaxed & the relaxation is contagious. Thank you.

  4. I especially like the tip on using oils in sketchbooks. I have never tried that and am putting it on my gotta-try list. I stopped using oils because of no place to hang them, so this is something to let me get back to oils. I was gifted an in-and-out sketchbook which allows you to pull out the paper, work on it, and snap it back in — perfect for the oils! Thank you for sharing.
