  • It's Not Like Eating Junk Food

    When it comes to putting additives into your paints, it just isn't the same as eating a Twinkie or bag of Doritos. Additives are necessary in some cases, especially for landscape artists who work with varying conditions when painting landscapes . They can open up whole new aspects of your paint if...

  • You Won’t Get Anywhere With Half Measures

    I've been told by more than one person that I try to see both sides of any issue. And my personal life aside, I can attest that I also do the same for art--I like to see it from all sides, materially speaking. That makes me a perfect match for mixed media art because you can combine so many different...

  • Re: waterfront, cretique

    Johan, This is a nice painting but, I find a couple things disturbing. (At least to me). One, Study a little more on aerial perspective. Everything seems to be on the same plane. You can drop the mountains back by making them lighter. The other thing is the large pine tree. It looks like it has been...

  • Re: Critique/Rate

    Hi, This is not a bad drawing. However, what is in front of your dog? If your going to do animal portraits, try to show the hole critter. I'm assuming that you did this with one pencil. You might try some of the softer pencils like 4B, 6B and 8B. These will put down a darker line or shading allowing...

  • Re: Advice/critics about line thickness

    Please note that the bold dark lines and dark shadows come forward, and the light ones will recede. Studies in perspective will show this. I don't know what pencils you are using but, the softer pencils like a 6B or 8B will produce some really dark lines. Hope this is some help.
