I think that one of the most exciting things I have accomplished is transitional blending....the ability to blend well with no harsh lines. This technique is so important when doing skies, grassy areas, water, mottled effects, clouds, linen material....so many different effects that use a transition in values and colors.
Painting is exciting. Learning is exciting. ********and RESULTS are rewarding when you feel the accomplishment.
Being positive is much more rewarding than negative thinking. Negativeness is not part of who I am.
