Practice, practice, practice.
Practicing or doing painting studies is like rehearsing for a stage play. You learn your lines and acting moves, tweak them, and become ready to entertain and engage the audience. I never tire doing the same portrait subject, because it only improves my wor...

Thinking in Chinese and Heading for Salt Lake City!
I find that watercoloring a portrait in a traditional, straight ahead manner BORING. I paint in what I call my "California-Vibe" style. In other words,  a portrait that is loaded with amped up Xpression . . .  inventive paint application, evocative design e...
