I was so nervous to open the email. I could see the title. It was a critique of a painting I did called pansies in a pot. I would get one about every week on several paintings. I sent him a few paintings just to show him what he taught me. I didn’t ask for critiques, but I guess if you send your teacher your paintings, you get critiqued. I still have a few more classes to complete but have been doing my own thing. I better get back to it next week and get them all finished up. Fruit….
I thought I would share this one. See the short video below. I appreciated that he was gentle and didn’t break my spirit. I can be tender. I understood what he said in his suggestions and agreed.
The teacher is Daniel Edmondson. I like his teaching style and his painting style. It is wet on wet with heavy use of paint. I’m not quite there yet, but with time I think I can be. Practice.
