Issue #6 - October 2007

SPECIAL REQUEST FROM BOB

I've had to take the contact form down from the site due to the number of e-mails being received. I was finding it very difficult to answer everyone especially as I'm working hard to get a DVD project finished on time.

For the time being I won't be able to answer questions including replies to the newsletter. I will still continue producing Starting Art every month and the site will continue to grow at a pace, so keep checking back!

I kindly request your patience and understanding until I'm in a position to start answering questions once again.

Many thanks,

Bob. P.s. If this e-mail doesn't format correctly in your e-mail software (i.e missing images, broken links etc) you can always see the contents at the following back issues web page:

3. Watercolor Home Study Course - Work In Progress

This one's just a quick notice - for those who've been asking me. Filming of the Watercolor Home Study Course is well under way. I can't say too much at this stage other than that it's a complete system for painting watercolor landscapes. I know from many years experience that ANYONE, regardless of their starting ability, can paint stunning watercolors with this system. It takes "natural ability" out of the equation yet lets creative flair shine through.

The aim is to have it finished by Christmas and I want to involve subscribers of Starting Art as much as possible. Extra lessons have / will be included based on a questionnaire that many of you kindly filled out a few months back.

I'll keep a running commentary of this in each issue of Starting Art from now on and please also check my blog for more updates (see the next item for what a blog is!).


4. The Art Blog

Technology (and especially the Internet) seems to move so fast that I for one find it difficult to keep up. It took me a while to learn what a blog was - I kept hearing about them on the news and the radio but never took the time to investigate.

Well, now the site has a blog of it's own and you can even subscribe to it. For those who know that means, you can see my blog at the page below. If it's all Greek (or Geek) to you then...

Very simply, my blog is like a "what's new" page. Every time I add a video or a tutorial this page is updated so you don't have to scour the site to find recent additions. I'm also starting to add quick tips and updates to the blog that won't appear on the rest of the site.

5. The Visitor's Gallery Picks Up Pace

If you haven't uploaded your artwork to the visitor's gallery yet, you should! It's a thriving place where very supportive, like-minded individuals offer their constructive criticism helping to both motivate you and improve your technique.

That's it for this issue. See you next time!

Bob.
