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

00:08 — a lesson on composition and color theory

30:50 — How do you clean Geneva paint from your brushes when you're done painting for the day?

32:03 — How do you restore brushes with wayward bristles?

33:44 — Do you always mix your own black with burnt umber and ultramarine?

34:53 — If your printer can make certain colors that you can't match with your palette, why not use a CMYK palette instead of an RYB palette?

37:58 — I am trying to achieve a more painterly look but when I do that my paintings come out worse than when I am just copying a photograph in a very precise and realistic way. How can I learn to paint more like Sargent, Sorolla, etc? Copying the masters?
