  1. Looks like a fun painting today!! I’ll be tuning in!!
    I love your Craftsy class! You are an awesome instructor… you bring all the fun elements of Mixed Media to the class, plus (best of all) your wonderful personality! I truly hope you are able to do more Craftsy classes, and yes, I’ve written to them asking for more! 😄 I hope the class is a great success for you in every aspect!!


  2. That’s an impressive painting! I must confess when I saw the first rough draft I thought “WOW! Expressionism!”. Eggnog? I was quite relieved when I later realized it was only a quick color sketch …
    I wish I could paint such tiny details like that and still stay loose!

    I’m still rummaging through websites about student grade paints to find out if those Senneliers are student grade or not. I think student grade paints usually have their own color charts with different names and numbers to keep them apart from the artist quality of the same brand. At least Winsor & Newton, Talens and Schmincke do that. I read the Sennelier website over and over again and wonder if the only difference between the two kinds of Sennelier you have is, the ones you used today contain (more) glycerin:

    I hope Sennelier will answer your mail soon. I would rather not buy the student grade just for the handy box if I already have the artist grade.


    • I just filmed the review, and I compared the paint side by side, there were a few colors that were the same in the sets I had and there were only small differences. Hopefull it will help. Usually watercolors contain glycerin to keep them from cracking.


  3. I Love sheep. Made me some cards with them for christmas.


  4. I really like your sheep painting. So colorful, rich and bright!


  5. Couldn’t download the PDF. I kept getting a combo of numbers and letters in a line.


Tell me what YOU think!
