  1. Hi Len, I stumbled over your site this morning and think it is fantastic. I have just taken up acrylic painting and really enjoying it. Your lessons are easy to watch and you are not acting crazy like a lot of the other ones do.
    It’s great to be able to pick up tips from professionals when you are just staring out and learning about the materials too. Also is there any way of getting feedback from you of our own works?

      1. Hi Sharon
        I’m having a problem with emails so I’ll post my message to you here.
        Hi Sharon
        Sorry – bit slow getting back to you.
        From the pic I can see you will be able to paint well by following my
        You are aware of the pale on the horizon – good
        But most of all you have put the paint on and not gone back over it as
        most beginners do – your colors are woven but are not blended completely
        and that is where many painters make a muddy mess – yours is vibrant.
        Eventually you will need to keep your waves or water perfectly
        Please keep painting in your confident manner – with brush and knife –
        pay close attention to the techniques I teach but do enjoy your own
        style and try not to think you need to go back and fix up mistakes as it
        is better to paint another picture.
        You will learn by your mistakes.
        Hope this is a help for you – you can keep in touch as I try to answer
        all my emails.

  3. Hi Len,
    Painting in acrylics this week has been very demanding due to the heat. The paint wont flow and t is so hard to do reflections. Have you any suggestions to improve the flow of acrylic paint in this heat.
    Kind Regards

  4. Hi Len,
    I have been viewing your videos in youtube related to paintings of landscape. I think you are wonderful painter and have lot of charisma. You are humble and very creative.
