Profile Information

How long have you been painting? Doing any kind of art?
The first time I picked up a brush was summer of 2015. As an educator, I seem only to manage painting during summer breaks (so far), so I keep having to relearn what little I knew the summer before! Other than doodling, acrylic on paper--and now three canvases!--has been my only attempt at art.
What other mediums have you used?
Are their specific things you would like to learn?
My painting is "too tight" -- nothing like the lovely, free strokes in your work. I want to paint realistically, but create softer images and stop freaking out about every blade of grass. :) I seem hopelessly unable to mix good greens. My paintings seem too cartoon-ish in color. Even though I understand the principle of a light source and shading, I have no idea how to mix colors to shade properly.
Where did you learn about this website?
I happily stumbled upon your YouTube videos.
