    Glad to see you doing the chart. The more books I’ve read by the current great teachers, mostly those whom Johnnie and he filmed, all refer to doing the chart. Then the next book, same thing. Finally, our painting group here in Louisiana are painting them. Ralph ran the copies on canvas paper and we are painting. We had a new girl start and she painted the values of AC and was so excited over the colors it made. After we finish the value scale of those in our palette, we then start with our first color and mix each color with it on our palette and do 5 values 1, 3, 5, 7 (I may do all the values to 10).I am doing this with all my paints. Using a brush not a knife that R Schmid had to use but he said, he became proficient with his knife. I may do that in there some of the time just to pick up knife techniques. In Louisiana, we have a few art teachers but they are committed to the local schools so we catch anything we can to learn from. We are also doing Johnnie’s DVDs after the value scales and color mixing. We also have other DVDs that R & J filmed so that is as good as a book…also Johnnie’s bast library. No excuse for me to not paint well, however, I need someone to critique me. Ralph knows a lot and I am amazed at the amount. He helps a lot and has a very good eye. If something I know is worng, I know he’ll see it.

    So right now, I’m on lights and shadows, colors and hormony, values and edges. That might take me to my 90s!
