Thoughts From the Studio

In the evenings I spend a lot of time reading my favorite books about the Old Masters' painting techniques.  There are so many ways you can get wonderful effects quickly and easily - if you know how.  But when you read of the struggle they all had trying out different oils - sometimes with disastrous results, trying to find the perfect medium, the perfect varnish, I can only say "Thank you Winsor and Newton!" for giving me such a wonderful selection of trustworthy products... Van Dyke would have loved you!
