A Thanksgiving Thanks!

In the spirit of Thanksgiving, I’ve been reflecting on all the positivity and creativity that has come through the Art School blog.

So I’d like to thank you all for your support & encouragement this year. The most rewarding thing for me is seeing students progress in their drawing and painting where they’d previously been struggling.

I’ve also broken through the 500,000 views on YouTube, Woohoo! so thanks for watching and more videos will be coming soon.

I’ve been working hard on the ‘Simple Guide to Colour Mixing Course‘ which should be launched in the next couple of weeks.

In pumpkin pie envy, me and Vanessa are off to the Pudding Club Extravaganza in our local Town Hall – think 50 puddings and 2 fast spoons!

Have a great weekend,

Will

Thanks for the great offer! If my check comes through in time I will be a student. The class looks like it covers lots of the fundamentals that I need. I’ve finally got paint and brushes, so I’m ready to go. I even built a stay-wet palette!
I hope you enjoy your pudding. You deserve lots of yummies ’cause you’ve been so generous with your knowledge. Hope to be watching you this weekend. Congrats on the YouTube viewership.
Sincerely,
DianaL

Hi Will, I have drawn in squares (for cross stitch embroidery) for years, but paint has always frightened me. Your special offer has encouraged me to go for it. I am downloading as we “speak”. Thank you so much. Really looking forward to this.

Hi Carol,
Really pleased to hear the offer has encouraged you to face your fears about painting. With your colour/ hand eye co-ordination skills you should pick it up really quickly!

Enjoy the course,

Will

Hi Will,
Thank you very much for this special offer. I was so happy to discover your videos on youtube and love your style of teaching; I no longer feel intimidated using acrylics. I am really looking forward to starting this course.

Hope you had a great Thansgiving, Will. Thanks for the special offer, I have downloaded the videos and will go through them before I start painting seascape. Need to check your videos on youtube. I would really appreciate if you could also share the secrets of getting the ‘glow effect’, particularly the warm glow from lights/candle.

Best,
Amita

Hi Will,
I would like to second the request for some instruction on how to paint candlelight ( or any dramatic lighting ).
My check came in late, so I couldn’t jump on your generous Thanksgiving offer, but I’ve started on the Monet – gosh it is SO much stuff to consider!!
You’ve got me hooked because you are such a great teacher and I hope to be able to take all of your classes.
Thanks for your generosity with your knowledge.
Sincerely,
DianaL
