Received word that our first series with Go To Meeting last October...had glitches in the recording end, and the much awaited series to be available...


...will require us to offer the live series once again, all five of the sessions.  The glitches have been fixed...and needless to say...if you missed the first series, or a number of the sessions...this will be your opportunity.

Those that registered and participated in past F&W Go To Meeting webinars will be receiving an email notice, and link for registration. Also, when I get the link to register, I will provide it here in my blog and on well as   Hope you'll be joining is the outline for the first session, March 6th.... 

Composition for the Painter-  Larry Seiler

            The modern enculturated eye routinely comes to a determination when to tune in, when to tune out.  The challenge of the artist to consider the accumulated available knowledge we have of visual communication in a commercial/aesthetic modern age, and make use of that to advance interest in their own work.  Avoid shooting ourselves (metaphorically) in the foot!

Hi Larry: Will you be doing a webinar in gouache?? I just LOVE your gouache paintings, and there isn't much instruction out there on this media. Please let me know, and blessings my friend

Just scrolled down in your blog and saw the gouache demo being filmed! Can you please let me know when it will be shown?

Larry Seiler said...

we have to redo the first series on foundations..."for reasons paintings work" as there were technical glitches on the part of F&W...and we need to get that right, so those materials can be made available for North Light Shop/Books...

After that...we'll begin planning the next series. Typically I do five sessions, and I have four of the sessions, it will be nice to be prepared in advance...

thanks Sharon..
