If you have a question for me, post it in the comments below. I'll answer as many as I can on next Thursday's episode. Here are links to each question answered in this video:

00:14 — a lesson about "painting ugly" and the importance of stepping back when analyzing your work

08:07 — Can the Geneva palette be used to mix very dark black skin? And can you upload more of your paintings online?

10:19 — Why do you stain your canvas with fast-drying white and burnt umber instead of using a turpentine wash?

11:23 — Is there any significance to the position of the white and brown on your color wheel?

12:57 — What do you think of Leonardo da Vinci's paintings?

16:04 — Have you ever painted wet over dry? Where it was not possible, practical, or simple enough to paint wet on wet?

17:30 — Will you offer the option of purchasing Geneva colors without the oil of cloves being added for people who want their paint to dry quickly?

19:26 — You teach using a limited palette to create an extensive palette of color groups, but this seems like it could create certain problems, like wasting paint or having to remix colors you run out of. What are your thoughts on these issues?
