“The secret to realism in painting is not to be found in more details. Have you ever felt frustrated because no matter how much detail you add, the painting does not match your inner vision? My approach can help you understand what you are seeing, and how to respond to the visual patterns that are the basic structure of all good painting. This is what I wish they had taught me at the university. I have spent my life searching for the keys to help me paint what I see. It has been a wonderful journey, and one I am happy to share with you.
Learn how to create paintings that match what you want and take less time. It will be fun.”
