    For some reason the time lapse video does not play! Just the music comes on and very small pictures if I put pointer on the time lapse area. Do you know what is going on and how I may correct this problem?
    Thanks, K

    I love your tree paintings and that you used the properties of water to achieve the watery look in this painting. I have painted watercolour seascapes, but not that beautiful reflectiveness of almost still water with just ripples. Yours is a great gift and you have truly caught the light!

    I think your paintings are amazing and the videos are fun to watch. I would like to know why you splash with gouach, and if you have always done it or is it a style you adapted for yourself. It is hard to see the difference before splashing and after on the monitor. I am afraid to try it because I’m sure it would make my pictures cloudy or dull. Also, I notice you draw everything in with such detail, even the different tones in water and foliage. Do you find this helps with getting the right tonal values for depth and balance? You make beautiful paintings from beautiful reference photos, but the paintings don’t have that ‘copied’ look. Does the splashing help with that? Oh, and how do you pick the colors you use to splash with?
    Thanks,
    Linda K

      Hello Linda,
      I am quite controlling and tight when I paint so I splash as a way to introduce some element of chance and also because I like the look of drips. I am choosing the colors depending on the painting, considering what color I would like more of. I think the splashing part helps with the painting looking more like a painting and less like a picture.
      Thanks for your question :)

    Holy Moly! This watercolor is remarkable! Your attention to details with your drawing and then with the way you choose your colors shows how much you love to paint. Would you please tell me how long this one took you from start to finish? I also like the way you use your own style palette…Great to watch you working. Good luck with your entries.

      Hello Andrea,
      I am glad you liked the tutorial, I think when I started gathering all the video material, I had about a bit more than 10 hours, that counts only the hours of painting, you have to have a break once in a while or time to think. I worked on it for 4-5 days at the studio.
