Hi Friends! Today at 12:30pm Eastern Time on YouTube we are going to draw and paint a lovely (and maybe a bit scary for all you Doctor WHO fans out there) weeping angel statue.  There is no pattern because we will sketch it together! Yay!

  1. Count me in! I was able to convert so many friends and family to Doctor Who just from watching “Blink”! Love that episode! (And the 10th Doctor IS “My Doctor”! Who is your Doctor?? 😀

    • Although 10 in a charmer I like the 9th, he is a bit rough around the edges but he was the first doctor to hook me on the series.

    • They say your first is your favorite, which is the other Peter (Davison). I agree with Sarah about Clara,though in 5’s time, Adric was another I was not fond of. I also agree with Lindsay about Donna – she was one of the best companions ever. Wish there had been more Captain Jack!

    BTW: Who was the lucky winner of the GLoves in a Bottle giveaway! Hoping it is me because my cracked and bloody hands need some help! TIA!

  5. Loved the video today, one day I hope to be able to paint/draw hair like that, wow. I used to watch Dr Who from behind our sofa, in the 60’s/70’s, still feel my skin crawl when I hear ‘exterminate, exterminate’ Loving Lifebook 2017. Just started lesson one, was so cowardly but now having so much fun! I thought your eye was beautiful, in my humble opinion. Thank you for giving me a new fun and creative approach to art! ❤

  6. Very fun tutorial. Lindsay fans can you help me participate in the live chat? I watch live on YouTube on my IPad, I have it in portrait position and not in full screen mode, but still no chat shows up. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks, Janine

  8. Hi Lyndsay and hopefully other FURGAL fans I’m not sure if they can see what I post so I will post this on FB as well. I am so super frustrated with an issue I have been having sense tou started you live streams. I can not no matter what I do get the sketch to print. I’m not a very good drawer most time the papers either come out blank or have a few super faint lines here and there. I have an HP photo smart printer with a new ink cartridge and it prints other items perfectly. I’m really hopeing someone out there maybe had this printer and could tell me what it is I’m doing wrong. I love to paint and would just love to do the paint and pastel rusty truck you did I have try ed to draw it but I got so frustrated I gave up. I would be appreciative of any help or surest ions. Thanks in advance

  10. Lindsay, I want to start off by saying you are such a huge inspiration to me. A year ago I discovered adult coloring books, and from there ventured into other areas of art. I’m especially fond of watercolors. The advice you give with both your tutorial and review videos and blog are invaluable to me. Thank you so much for sharing such wonderful information with us. I couldn’t find where to email you or just post a general comment, so I’m commenting a question unrelated on this post (sorry for the high jack). I have student quality watercolors, Windsor and newton cottman sketchers pallets (12 colors), Koi pocket travel palette (24 colors), Grumbacher academy 10 tubes, set, I have more, but you get the idea, they are all in that $30 dollar price range. I’m looking to upgrade and spend a little more money on better paints. I’ve heard advice that when you want to upgrade from student paint it is best to just go ahead and buy artist quality paint. Unfortunately like us all, I am on a very tight budget. I was wondering if there was an in between range that I could explore given my budget restrictions or good quality artist paints that are budget friendly. I feel like there are good quality student paints that are affordable, but once you want to take that leap into artist quality you are gonna just have to suck it up and pay out, please tell me this isn’t so. I would love any advice you have for an artist on a penny budget looking to live the high life. Also, I do prefer pans to tubes, maybe that it because I’m still a novice. Thank you!

    • Hi Priscella,
      Here is my advice…as you use up a color buy a tube of artist grade. The student paints you have are very nice, there is no need to search for a inbetween set. Paint with these and when you use up ultramarine blue buy a tube of that. Also on amazon they have a set of 6 5ml tubes of daniel smith (called the essential set I think) that you can get for under $30 that is a great split primary mixing set, you could grab that because those are color you are most likely to use up first in your student sets. It is not so hard on the walett if you buy a tube at a time. Also check out the Turner line at Jerrys artarama, they have a set of 18 5ml colors you can get for under $30 and they are professional quality, not as good as Daniel smith but not bad.
