Learning the light

Fabulous video, great step by step on learning how to use the light and transfer that on your canvas. I've watched it many times, something new to learn every time!

Positively Amazing!!

It is not often you purchase an instructional video and feel it was worth every penny! But in this case, it is true!

Mark was easy going, provided complete explanations regarding how he approaches the painting, importance of on-site paint chips for studio work, color mixing, layering, impasto work and

tools used for unusual mark-making, and so much more! Truly, a delight to watch.

Mark's work is breath takingly beautiful and he doesn't hold back in his sharing of ideas in this video. I feel I can adopt many of the tips in my own work moving forward and I am excited to

put them to use. He has just finished another video: "Painting the Golden Hour" and with my birthday just around the corner, I will make sure my family knows I want this video!.

Some interesting ideas

I am 74 & have been painting for 70 and teaching GR.Com & Art (drg & ptg) for some 50 years). I found his beach grasses painting process (I have had a problem painting sand/gravel tracks) & this was helpful. Also the notion of creating a colour/value chart (on site) for later reference helpful.

Shimmering Light

I have bought many videos but this one stands out as one of the best. Mark set out to show how to make a painting sparkle and he succeeded at it. The colours of the sky and the colours of the sand were key to my understanding how to do it. Mark showed exactly how to mix those colours and it is little things like these that help us grow as artists
