    I was confused at the beginning. I don’t know how the leaves were there and I don’t know what’s glazing. So I didn’t continue. I tried to go to the discussion board to ask questions but can’t find a button for comments.

      Thank you for the feedback Shuying and welcome to the Paint Basket 🙂
      1) Initial drawing – In the Background video at 0m53secs I explain how I got the drawing onto the canvas and how to mask off the leaves before you start painting.
      2) Glazing – Glazing is where you lay a thin layer of paint down so the the colour underneath is still visible. I explain and show how to do glazing at 32m15sec into the Green Leaves video.
      3) Asking Questions – Below the video is a link to the correct place on the forum (Under the Discuss This heading). Once there you can simply click the Reply button, then ask your question. Don’t be shy to ask questions. I am happy to help 🙂
