Hi to all,

I just watched this nice video on how to see things or scene we want to paint. This is NOT a methodology course but an experience from a very good painter Jim McVicker. Worth to watch. Enjoy!

Have a great day!

Hi KC,

I agree with you. Although one advantage of acrylics is that it dries fast making less of a mess to bring it back home. Did you give some thoughts about Open Acrylics? Apparently it behaves like oils. Nevertheless on a trip i will be tempted to take acrylics but back home i will probably go back to oil. Actually i like to start my outside painting with acrylic burnt sienna for initial sketch and values (sometimes toning the canvass) then i finish with oils. Have a great day!

Thank you! As Karen says, "very inspiring". It makes me want to use oils, since when I tried acrylics outside, I was not able to keep them wet enough :(

This is excellent! I watched it Monday, on my lunch break. I am going to watch it again. Thanks
