Hi Nolan,

What happened to the monthly art challenge? The last one was in April, will you be doing it again?

Hi Anya, yes we will. We just became very crazy busy here on our side setting up Paint Basket TV that I didn't have the time  :crazy2:

I have a great challenge idea planned, keep your eyes pealed :eek: O0

Thanks Nolan, it's a great idea. I need some challenging every now and again.

I only caught the last half of the telecast today, it was really wonderful, you are a very good teacher who explains everything clearly, thanks for that. I look forward to painting that water scene.

I haven't been around long enough to answer that. I am not sure what challenges have already been done. I will just go along with any suggestion that will motivate me and help me to improve.

My last 2 paintings have been very frustrating for me, very difficult and I seem to be losing the joy in painting. I would like to paint something that will loosen me up and let creativity flow rather than worrying about all the technical aspects that I have been unable to accomplish. That's just where I am at at the moment. I am very happy to start the painting that you started today, I think that will really free me up and I will really enjoy painting it.

But as I said I am up for any challenge.

Hi Nolan:  It's 0327 hours here in Winnipeg, Manitoba Canada.  I would be up to any challenge.  I am a new-by to your site and have only been painting for 3 years.  I paint in watersoluable oils and really like using them.

Here's my suggestion,

anyone interested in learning how to paint skin tones? I would love to learn how to mix the right colors, how to blend, how to shade and highlight and how to acheive luminous skin.

I am just busy with a very important project at the moment so if you are willing to wait for a few weeks I will cook up an article on skin tones as I have experience with portraits.
