Dick Hutchings replied to Glen Billett's discussion Old Holland Oils
"What is your experience with other paints? I have only used M Grahm so far and see no reason to change.  I'm tempted by Old Holland that everyone talks about as being the cats pajamas. I haven't seen them to be all that expensive…"

Dick Hutchings replied to cheekyjane's discussion Monthly Theme - December 2017
"Here's my first pet portrait. I like doing them and I'm sure I'll do more. This one started as an acrylic done with pallet knife. I then decided to switch to oil and brush so this is why all the texture."

Dick Hutchings replied to Lloyd W Thibodeau's discussion Limit to Primary Colors?
"I stick to a mostly limited pallet and it has definitely taught to mix and I can do it rather quickly because I always mix. A recent dog portrait made me want to get another color just because I was mixing the same thing over and over. Of course now…"

Since I'm new here and this is my first post, I'll try to bring you up to speed. I started drawing in 2015 and having been learning various mediums. I started with pencil drawings and then colored pencils. I wasn't getting what I wanted out my drawings so I decided to try paint. I love painting and use acrylics, watercolors and oils. Acrylics being my go to but I really want to be proficient in oil and watercolor. 

Here are my first watercolors. Hmm I guess you can only add one image…
