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:

00:05 — a talk about the myth of "natural talent"

12:53 — Could you talk about "maintaining the abstraction" and how to avoid oversimplifying what we see when painting?

15:29 — Most of your videos show you painting with a small size 2 brush. What are your thoughts on bigger brushes?

17:17 — When creating photo prints to paint from, what type of lamination do you use, and what do you recommend for subject matter, lighting, type of camera, resolution, etc?

19:28 — Many artists use mirrors located about a room's length behind them when painting. Have you ever done this?

22:58 — You said "I've learned to take criticism"… can you expand on that?
