    This is the first Paint Basket painting video that I watched. I did this over four sessions. It was an excellent introduction. I really appreciated watching the colour mixing, brush work and overall approach. This class got me going-a great jump start.Thanks

    I have just started. Busy days.
    I have a program that converts photos to line drawings. Didn’t use it this time. Forgot all about it.
    I have just now converted the photo into a line drawing as a stand by. If you want to see the computerized sketch I will try and send it to you.
