Welcome to the YouTube Gazette
Join Us Tonight at 5:30 pm Central
Ginger will actually be painting a field of daffodils on tonight's live YouTube show.
Just wait to see what Ginger comes up with on this spring-time painting!
I wandered lonely as a cloud
That floats on high o'er vales and hills,
When all at once I saw a crowd,
A host, of golden daffodils;
Beside the lake, beneath the trees,
Fluttering and dancing in the breeze.
Daffodils by Willam Wordsworth
Another LIVE show where Ginger and Jon will be answering questions from the chat and just visiting with the studio audience.
Tutorials related to this Week's YouTube Show
Monet's Spring Apple Blossoms is a great YouTube lesson that is from one of our favorite ODGs.
This is a very impressionistic painting and a great introduction to this style of painting.
“Apple Tree Blossoms in a Spring Landscape” is another great painting to bring spring into your life even before the weather changes.
Here is a Ginger Cook original painting that will certainly brighten your walls. This is a wonderful tutorial about painting flowers and working with “greens”.
This is an 8×10 that is a 3-Cookie tutorial.
Mona Lundeborg – Before and After PAC
Mona sent this painting in for Personal Art Coaching from Ginger. In this particular case, Ginger made a video for her to suggest the changes that she might want to make.
After the suggested changes, Mona sent her painting back in for a final check by the “Queen of Color”.
Yes, and yes, it looks terrific!!!
I posted on Pinterest.
You did an outstanding job on this painting.
What's Old and New at the Academy?
A Still Life in Copper by William Merritt Chase is another great opportunity to learn from those that came before us.
Ginger will take you step-by-step as you learn to paint a reflective surface.
This was painted on an 11×14 canvas for our Red and Purple Members. This is a 3-Cookie tutorial.
As spring approaches, what better way to welcome a beginning to warmer days than three bunnies.
These little fellows are looking over the new flowers and fresh grass.
This was painted on a 16×20 stretched canvas for our Red and Purple Members. This is a 3-Cookie lesson that is about 4-1/2 hours in length.
PAC Claps – Personal Art Coach Moments
I have to thank Ginger Cook and Jon Little for the academy. Three years ago, I wanted to learn to paint so badly but could not find a teacher that was kind, yet able to give me constructive criticism.
Today, I have the power and the confidence to paint almost anything that I want to paint. All of this is due to Ginger and Jon, their unending patience, love, and teaching.
