Lynn this is a great video on how you go about painting. You make painting look like fun. I'm sorry you are having eye troubles. Please take care of your eyes. I have lost my ability to carve now due to Macular degeneration . I discovered carving late in my life and fell in love with it. It saddens me that I can no longer carve so take care of your eyes.

More detail work, and that makes the difference. You understand the colors and properties of the paint and that makes a difference. I am studying, but no substitute for experience.
