Announcing my new DVD! Making Waves

Hip Hip Hooray! My new DVD is finally here and scheduled for release on March 1, 2010! I'm excited to get this one to you. Some of you may remember my wave studies I posted in a previous blog post and after several requests I've been working on this video workshop on how to paint a wave. I'm happy with the final version and ready to share it with you all.
The Making Waves DVD covers my process for painting wave #297 from my photo references as I show you step-by-step how to paint this wave. I'm including the reference photo and a painting pattern with the DVD along with a copy of my painted wave. The running time is 1 hour and 40 minutes which covers the entire painting process plus a few Bonus Tips on adding some finishing touches to your waves.
As with anything new and different it wasn't without it's little quirks. The biggest hurdle we had to jump was "too much of a good thing"....yes.... I talked too much! (Go ahead laugh!)
I had so many tips, tricks and techniques to share that we ended up cutting out a bunch of good footage....enough to make a second'm pleased to say I'll be launching a follow up video called Hints and Tips for Painting Ocean Waves as soon as we can get it pulled together.

February Already!

My oh my, where does time go? We are already into February.

I've been painting on some new projects and working on some new videos to be released this spring. It seems like when I'm in production mode the whole world races past me while I'm locked in my own secret studio. I promise I don't have my head in the sand! Or do I? (Smile) Now that's a picture to imagine!

I had a nice visit with my son, Hunter, visiting from Texas. He was here for almost a week and believe it or not it didn't rain the whole time he was here. I wish he could have stayed longer and I wish there weren't so many miles between us so we could visit more often. Sigh, if only!

The subject for my Wednesday evening class this month has been 'birds.' We are working with masking fluid and learning techniques for painting wet-in-wet backgrounds as a back drop for our feathered friends.
I'll attach my bird painting demo (in progress) and update it in a couple of weeks.
Happy Painting everyone!
