I thought this time I would make my entry about Darrell Crow. Have you ever heard of him? He's an artist who teaches. He sells his DVDs from his web site HERE. You should really check it out if you're a beginner. Heck, I think even skilled artists would learn a thing or two from him. Mom and I went in together and purchased his Basic Techniques of Oil Painting set. He's really a wonderful teacher. He takes things very slow and doesn't skip the important little details. With the set we bought he even has a whole 2 hour DVD for getting started. It teaches you about your work area, brushes, paints, canvas, isles, etc... Then he moves on to Trees, Clouds, and all the other DVDs. Each DVD is 2 hours long. By the end of just one of his DVDs you'll be so inspired. I believe he has just come out with his own line of brushes, if I'm not mistaken. It's been a while since I've visited his BLOG. That's the first time I've been in a while when I just went to find the link. Anyway, you should check out his site and do some browsing. Order the free DVD and see if you could benefit from his teachings. I believe I have. I've already been eyeing some of his other sets.
Okay, I'm off to bed. I think my Unisom has finally kicked in. Night all!
