Welcome to the YouTube Gazette
Join Us Tonight at 5:30 pm Central
Originally painted in 1889 by Paul Gauguin, Ginger will put her spin on this figurative portraiture.
This is a Live YouTube tutorial tonight. This is a Ginger Cook original 9×12 painting.
This is a LIVE show where Ginger and Jon will be answering questions from the chat and just visiting with the studio audience.
We will be on at 5:30 pm central (6:30 pm eastern)
If you like tonight's portrait, then here is another self portrait by Van Gogh.
In this lesson, “Red Mardi Gras Mask”, Ginger shows you how to paint this mask which is very similar to tonight's lesson. This is an 8×10 3-Cookie tutorial for our Red and Purple Members.
A Lady Reading a Book
Originally painted by a British artist, William Seer, in the 1800s. This is another example of a figurative portraiture that is a little more challenging. This is a 9×12 4-Cookie tutorial.

ARE LANDSCAPES CREATING A “GREEN” CHALLENGE FOR YOU?
There are many ways to learn to make “greens”, but we believe that the best way to learn is by doing. We have spent many hours creating a full 30 hours of videos to help you with this in our Quintessential Color Mixing Journal.
Many of you have indicated in our questionnaire, that color mixing is one of your biggest challenges and that the majority of you want to paint more landscapes but are hesitant because of the “greens”.
As many of you know, Ginger does not purchase green paints except for Phtalo Green. When taking a walk and looking around, how many greens do you see? There are “warm” and “cool” greens. There are “gray” greens as well.
I think that it is safe to say that there are a least 50-Shades of Green. Do you really want to purchase all of that paint? Maybe it's time to get a little help from Ginger in her video, “Adventures in Green”, which is available to view right on our website for “GREEN” Members and above. Check it out here!
Also, you might consider the Quintessential Color Mixing Journal to help you with your mixing of colors. There are over 13 hours of instructions broken down into over 30 episodes. This is a must for any serious artist!
You can get there a lot faster with Personal Art Coaching, so this is something that you will want to keep in mind as you navigate your way through the jungle of art. We are also working on a new product that might be of interest to you in the future.
Please use the Contact Us on the new site if you have any questions or if we can help you with the new site.
Thank you, and remember, we are here to help you succeed! Please use the Contact Us form for any questions. Do NOT use Facebook, Messenger, or any other form of communication.
Ginger, Jon, and the Stuffy Staff
