    You put the old paint onto the wall of a jar of water?!? How does THAT work, keeping it good?

    Mr. Blackburn, as a fellow artist drawn to a realistic style I've thoroughly enjoyed your episode of CIYL! Thank you for your inspiring words regarding finding our own style and our own true north. Wonderful! I look forward to seeing more from you. Colleen

    Hi folks! Book Update: I am working my tiny tush off on the book: How. The Creator's Handbook, as we speak. Currently, I am experimenting with an approach. And, I'd appreciate your input. Here's what I am considering: usually when someone sells someone a book it's a one-off kind of a deal–the publisher designs a cover and the general book package to 1. attract your attention from across a room full of other books; 2. get you to pick up said book and 3. look inside, 4. so, you will hopefully purchase said book and of course, 5. read it. BUT, most publishers don't much care what happens after that. I do. I want you to use it over and over again. So, I am playing around with the concept of reading it from front-to-back (DUH, what an idea), but USING it, back-to-front. At the moment, this is how I am putting it together. It is over 90% "in the can", but there are a LOT of technical pieces yet to finish…

    Update on future videos: I have also begun studying up on how to do my own videos (as much as Graeme and the Amazing Sophia adore my scintillating wit, and "Olympian Wisdom", (eye roll permitted here), I am guessing it would be inconvenient for them to dash up here to Millcreek every few weeks to record me in my natural habitat.) I am moving forward on that front as well. What I am considering, is a series of videos covering art technique, art as a career, but more importantly, the much deeper subject of the art process. This will expand upon the book: comments welcome here or at : info@howcreatorshandbook.com

    I am so impressed with your stunning works of art. It was however, the "find your own magnetic north" that I found even more inspiring. I hope you do come to Australia, and preferably near me.

    Love his studio gear. Decades of experience distilled into a minimalist setup.

    Congratulations Geoffrey for this awe-inspiring video and sharing your techniques with us. It was a wonderful surprise seeing this, as you may recall having received an award from Manhattan Arts International for an exhibition I curated. You are one of the top realist painters I've ever known. Best wishes for your continued success!

    Wonderful review, ideas and artwork. Graeme you are doing an amazing art – mission and artwork too! I love Australia and your videos represent perfect fusion of my two biggest love: Fine Art and Australia. My dream is to be able to live there one day. Thank you, Robert

    Can I ask about the lighting he uses. I always thought that the colours change , or you don’t see the right colour with lights on them as you paint. For instance dark blue might look like black when put on a wall without the lights from the lamps. Sorry, English isn’t my first language.

    I know two of Geoffrey's daughters. Aside from being an amazing painter, he must have been an amazing father, as his daughter's are such great people… This was so fun to watch. What an incredible artist! ?
