Yes, the site has been a bit silent but I have been busy. Back in June we started producing a video tutorial to accompany the foundational chapters of Mastering Glazing Techniques in Watercolor, Volume 1. The plan was to cover items such as paint, paper, palettes,and brushes. Along with that I go through about 25 lecture/ demos on various brush handling techniques, paint characteristics, etc.  and some of the basic elements of watercolor glazing. All of these lessons are designed to bring some of the first sections of the book to life.

I think we will all agree that while it is one thing to have an informative book it is quite something else to be able to peer directly over someone’s shoulder  and actually watch a technique. It is far better than looking at a reverse image in a mirror often seeing the back of a bald head! If you have been to demos you know what I mean. Yes, I know, not all heads are bald.  I just happen to be there at this time in my life!

The course is in a testing phase and I would like to offer you all a unique opportunity. This is my way of saying THANK YOU for your support of this site.  For the first 50 responders who sign up you get the course FREE of charge. No catch.  No gimmicks. I would appreciate an honest review with any tips or suggested improvements. That is all.
