    I wanted to take a moment and thank everyone who has subscribed. Today, I passed 1K subscribers, and because of you (and people like Steve @ Mind of Watercolor and Brian Ashmore Studio for their shout outs!) we did it in under 4 months. That blows me away and makes all the work that goes into these vids worth it. Can't wait to see what comes next, but I will be doing some kind of thank you video with a prize drawing coming up. Again, a big THANKS!!! I appreciate every one of you!

    Can I ask, for this demo, what colors you were using on your palette?

    Now thats the best explanation of AP on a whiteboard I've ever seen. LOL! As for Boo? Maybe she can teach the cats around my house a thing or two about mousing. Seriously though, AP has always been fascinating to me. I remember standing in front of an 6' tall Albert Bierstadt for the first time when i was bout 13 years old. I didn't know what AP was then but I could see it. The atmospheric painting effects left an indelible mark on me. Great treatment of the subject and always a joy to watch you paint!

    I’m thinking here, I see the color drop off in your examples but I am confused in your painting example. It seems to have pretty strong color all the way up. Mid way I see greens but no yellow or red but there seems to be pretty good color to the top of the mountains. I guess, well, I need to get more pictures out and study them. You have the wheels turning in my brain for sure. After I do more research maybe I can ask more questions. Thanks

    Beautiful painting and excellent tutorial. One question though. How do you keep colors from getting muddy when layering one color over the other? thanks

    Another useful tutorial Steve – thank you so much. You're up there with James Gurney and Andrew Tischler as one of my favourite YouTubers. Is it possible to show a cutaway to your palette so that we can see how you mix your values?
