I have been learning to paint in acrylics, with the help of a self taught lady.  She has shown me the ropes and I have a class with her once a week.  This is my latest painting, I would appreciate…READ MORE

omg i had no idea there are so many texture pastes available. i already have 3D gloss, heavy and light, matte and gloss gels, glass beads, moulding paste and modeling paste, fibre paste, crackle, antquing fluid, triple thick, glossy accents, varnish, sprays, enough! i feel swamped already! i don't think i'll buy more although i have been looking at black lava! but i like the sound of some of yours too! ok, well, i am having fun with them all, and that is what is important, eh?

 Hello Lydia  thank you for sharing a little about yourself with me. I am so glad to hear  that after so many sad events you are getting to enjoy some good times. I am sure you will be doing really great portraits before you know it. My portrait ' Evelyn' is of my mother who I drew from a photo in the weeks after her death. It was both difficult and helpful. I don't paint, too tricky for me. I am concentrating on pencil and have only just recently moved into colour and I am far from comfortable with it.  About ten years ago  I got sick and could no longer continue to work so I turned a bad into a good and started drawing. I am studying art history slowly but any thing practical I learnt from sites like this one. There's not many questions that cant be answered on the internet......the rest is practice. Lovely to 'meet' you.

Hi Lydia.  Thanks much for all your nice comments.  And congratulations to you sister!  I retired in 1995 -- don't think e-books were around then, or if so, just starting.  The new contract I have with Amazon is for mostly e-books and Kindle and both are selling well. And yes, it is one big job -- not sorry I retired.  Art is a different story.  It is more from the heart. Thank you for the friend addy -- I know you'll just love this site! ♥

Aloha My friend Lydia, how are you this day? Well I'm just a newbe on "Foto flex", so I'm referring you to the guys who got me started (Pat & Nelson) so they can help you with the download. You can use it on a trial basis until you're ready for the big times, then I figure "We" can all learn together as we progress with it. Maybe the 4 of us can start a special workshop afterwards on the site. Mahalo
