enjoyable lesson

I enjoyed John's relaxed presentation style and hearing his thoughts while watching him apply paint and make adjustments. His color mixing explanation/demonstration was very helpful. His paint thickness appears to be thin but I would have liked to hear an explanation of the thickness he prefers and why.

I have painted in workshops and in stufio classes taught by John for several years.
John is a artists teacher as this video demonstrates.

John Cosby: Painting Plein Air Impressionism

During John Cosby's marine painting and talk, despite having a video camera pointed at him for several hours, he looked so at ease. It appeared to me as if he had thought out everything he would say before the camera rolled.

I was so impressed with the amount of information John gave during his time in front of the camera that I feel that I can get even more in one of his multi-day workshops.
