    Nice tutorial.  I'm in S. Utah and Arizona.  Lots of Mesas and Buttes with the horizontal and vertical lines of very cool geology.  Would love to see your technique with those.  (If you need references–let me know–will send—–very dramatic here in the Zion area.)

    You make it look so easy and yet the results are an absolute treat. Thanks for this. I was just in Arizona (my Mum passed away and I stayed with my Dad for a week) and the two watercolours I did, in my opinion, didn't suck. I credit your video with that.

    I love your work. I am naturally a pencil artist but am just now getting into water color painting. I am learning from you. Thanks for sharing your skills.

    Yes, I'm trying to find ways of getting the photo in view more often. Thanks for watching. I'm glad the videos are helping you.

    Thank you for your generosity in sharing your talents. I just started watercolor. I'm learning a lot from you. It would be helpful to see the reference photo more often. Not a criticism.

    I really like this one very much but especially the water. Just great. What a hand!

    That must have been some change moving from Brum to Phoenix! I love the landscape but couldn't put up with the heat or creepy crawlies!

    I'm glad the videos are helping with your watercolours. Thanks for watching Allan and best of luck.

    Great painting Steve. I am originally from Brum but now reside in Phoenix, AZ so was really pleased to see this demo, I had been trying to figure out how to adapt your painting style to my local landscape, this really helps! Love all your work!

    It's a single sheet clipped to a board. The dark is just paint built up over time.

    Thanks Cristiano.

    I'm glad you liked it Larry. Thanks for watching.

    I wish you well Walter with your painting. I love the landscapes out there in your neck of the woods but I wouldn't be able to stand the heat. I can't stand it here in the UK when it gets into the 80's! I'm glad the videos have helped. Best wishes and happy painting!

    That's the beauty of the large hake in being able to cover the paper quickly with few strokes. Glad you liked it Tony.
