    Fabulous instruction. Color is and area that I have struggled with in my work and you have so simply explained two of my biggest areas of frustration. Thank you so much for your clear simple explanations and wonderful examples.

    This is wonderful Alex! I'm wondering, is white light from a lamp considered a cool light?

    Looks more like a lemon shaped apple, with the heavy use of green. Thanks for sharing.

    Great exercise! Well done!
    Would you also call saturation "chroma"?

    Once again I learned something new. Saturation is key to understanding how colors work next to each other. I wish I had come across you much earlier. Cheers!

    Excellent instruction, only one negative comment. The sound was poor, and yours is not uncommon. Many teaching videos have poor sound and or lighting. Slow down your speech just a little. Otherwise I give it a ten.

    Thank you very much, could you please tell me: Nature is more grayer than you think, when I paint, how grayer I should mix the color? Is there any way to see the color from the the object? Thank you.

    You really help me improve my skills. While tutorial videos out there prob just paint and paint without explanations, yours actually give us cues about what to do. Thanks a lot!!

    Hello, thank you very much for the video! I have a question. In the photograph of the lemon I see the cast shadow having harder edges than in the painting. May I ask why this is? Is it because it looks better? Or am I seeing hard edges where you see soft ones? I’m sorry if this seems like I am overthinking this but I tried to make this painting from your photo before watching how you would make it (if I see my mistakes after I make them, by comparing my work, the concept sticks better in my mind) and that is a big difference I see in mine and yours. I have another question if you had time. You mentioned here the shadows are warmer, so by contrast the lit part should appear cooler. Why does the lit part (the more saturated yellow of the lemon I mean) not appear cool to me? I hope my questions make sense to you. Thank you so much.
