  1. I love your work, its so light and full of colour, and I love the effect of painting on silk that you have achieved. Its inspirational! Thank you for posting your tutorials; they are a valuable resource. I can learn and keep up with the new techniques without leaving my home, and do it at my own pace, and without feeling pressured to adapt my techniques to whatever is the latest style of doing things.

    • Thank you so much for your comment Caroline. You have responded to my whole purpose in putting up this site. Enjoy your art exploration! Julie

  2. Hi Julie,
    I feel I must email you to let you know I find your site inspirational and easy to understand, I live in Tasmania. I’ve now entered my 70th. Year with my leaves turning autumn brown, they aren’t droppin’ off yet to much to do – for some strange reason I’ve decided I would like to paint even though I can’t draw a stick man, let alone how to mix colours, never been to an art gallery on entered a museum since I’ve left school way back when – so I thought I’d look around the web that’s how I found your wonderful site, the way you use colours really affected me, I’ve never seen the use of colour that way – loved cliff faces. Do you make DVD’s on how to paint? If so please let me know.
    Kindest Regards,

    • Hi Roger – Thanks for the feedback – much appreciated! No I’m afraid I don’t have a DVD available on how to paint. I felt I would reach more people by supplying information on this website. Congratulations on running with your instinct to paint at this stage of your life. Why not indeed!
      I suggest you start with simple subjects and not too many colours until you get a feel for tone (dark to light). Please feel free to email your efforts to me – I am only too happy to help where possible.
