There have been some amazing instructors who've guided me over the years, and I hear their voices floating around in my head as I work sometimes, as if my studio is haunted. Here are a few of their take home messages for you, and I won't charge you a penny for them:

Remember, your shapes must show clarity of information - Robert Moore

If you want to grow, paint every day for five years - Judy Gelfert

Save your brightest brights for your focal point, don't put them too close to edges and for heaven's sake don't put them everywhere - Vicki McMurray

Work thin and transparent until it is time to add the highlights, only then do you add white to your color - Ann Templeton
Holy cow people I told you NOT to take pictures during my demos. - Jean Chambers
