Trying Something New

In this post I am trying something new.  I’m currently working on a series of watercolor video tutorials. The intent is to try to bring portions of my revised edition of  Mastering Glazing Techniques in Watercolor to life via live video demonstrations.  As a book lover I think books are great.  However, let’s be honest, there are new toys available. In order to make some principles of watercolor painting come to life a student needs to see the procedure as it is being done.  As is said, ” A picture is worth a thousand words”. In that spirit my post will be brief.

The video is a test.  It is a small segment of an 8 minute tutorial.  Your feedback will be greatly appreciated.
