I have seen some (but not all) of Peggy's video series on painting and think that it is wonderful! She is a "good explainer of things" - doesn't hold back information - and is one of those rare people who can paint and talk at the same time. (She is also a natural "ham" and it is fun to watch her).

For anyone who paints directly (a la prima) I think that Peggy covers it all. If I had to get one video on painting, this would be it.

As for Peggy's soon-to-be-made video on Sauce - I shall stand in line for one of the first copies!

Steven and Karin,

Thanks, you guys...(I'm a ham?)...for the kind comments. I am also considering a "big giant head" demo. Last week I taught a workshop where I painted a big giant head. A 24x20 canvas with two eyes, a nose, mouth and chin. By making the painting six times life size, it was very easy to see the strokes and passages that even on close viewing are difficult to see. It was also possible to take the painting to a "finish" in just a few hours, where this would be a difficult process when there is hair, background, and clothing to cover.

I did a brown eye and a blue eye, "not" nose and "not" mouth, alla prima, in the manner of Franz Hals.

Off to Philadelphia. Hope to see many of you there! (We'll miss you Steven...)

Peggy

I am one of those people who is anxiously awaiting the "release date" of Karin's instructional video or book on oil painting. I hope, she has not shelved the project , as I am sure many others would love to see her reveal the secrets of her stunningly beautiful portraits. Instructional videos make great teaching aids. I have watched and rewatched Peggy Baumgaertner's video series and can't tell you enough how well executed and informative the series is. Sure would be nice to see if others join in asking Karin to do it for the sake of those who can not attend the art workshops or have access to evening art schools / leagues. The beauty of instructional video is that its the next best thing to having a 1:1 session with your favorite teacher every day of the week. And, who wouldn't love to have a 1:1 with an artist of Karin's caliber...
Best Regards,
Omar

Blush.

Thanks for the kind words. How about if I do a step by step painting (pictures and text) and put it on a CD ROM?

Might this be useful to anyone? It would be easier for me to do right now than a viedo...and I think it could be more detailed (which might actually be more helpful).

Any other suggestions?

I for one would be thrilled to have insturction from Karin in any way, shape or form. There are a few of us out here who are struggling with the old master method and step-by-step instruction just may be the remedy.

My two cents...

This is a subject I have been watching with excitement and I must comment. I, too, would feel as priviliged as the others to purchase any instructional work from Karin.
Actually, Karin, if you took a small bit of time to create this step-by-step CD it would keep everyone busy for now and you would not have to spend so much time answering all those posts.
I've been with this forum since January of this year and have watched your popularity grow. I think it is time to bless us with perhaps even "the crumbs from your table."

(You've got to admit....2 full pages of requests for your expertise. After two months of dry leads, my last request for commissioned work was to paint two smiley faces on the back of a van. Every artists dream!)

Let's hope that CD-Rom will serve as a prelude to launching the long awaited video project. In the mean time, your fans are thrilled (or shall I say ecstatic)that Karin has given the nod to doing a step by step instructional CD. On the second thought, I prefer the CD-Rom over video. Given the huge data storage capacity of CD, Karin can impart a wealth of knowledge on her "how to techniques" accompanied by graphic details. Hmmm, I can't hardly wait....

Best Regards,
Omar
