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:

00:04 — a talk on making a living as a realist painter with advice for artists at the start of their careers

13:44 — What is your favourite painting you've made?

14:09 — I don't care to learn without the method, I just want to make money. Will people consider me a "cheater" if I match colors for an entire career? Did you use the "method" for all the portraits on markcarder.com?

17:27 — a question about color terms (like value, tone, etc)

18:41 — How do I paint layered intricate patterns with Geneva paint?

20:07 — What is your opinion on standing versus sitting while painting? Do you ever use a mahlstick or cane?

21:11 — Would you paint from a print that has been "amped up" with filters in Photoshop?

23:54 — Does the fluidity of Geneva paint still allow for brush strokes to show in paintings?

25:08 — What sort of black do you use for painting your easel and color checker?
