Dealing with shadows

This week Ingrid Christensen is going to be our guest blogger. She writes her own blog, where you can find much more, regarding the world of oil painting.

I live and breathe paint – which is probably not too healthy – from morning till night. When I’m not painting, I’m thinking about painting or researching techniques or looking at gallery sites or blogging about painting. Ingrid joins us in 2014. Book now for her April 29-May 8th dates...
