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:

00:05 — how to use a color checker with a screen (like a computer monitor or tablet) and painting plein air, as well as an overview of the new Geneva Color Checker

12:57 — Do you have any tips for maintaining the exact same viewing position when painting objects such as glass with reflections and other colors that can change?

14:25 — Do you frame your work or leave it unframed, and in your experience does it make a difference in the selling price?

16:28 — In your video "How to Mix Colors" you talk about mixing "good steps". Do you stop making steps when you determine you have covered the full value range?

18:50 — What do you think about lead-based white paint like Cremnitz or flake white? I heard that lead paint is better for flesh tones because it's transparent.

21:09 — I know Geneva paint is already mixed with the correct amount of medium, but what would you suggest if I want to paint a thin under-layer?

22:41 — How do you feel about the word "talent? I prefer the word "skilled".
