Each Issue of Artistry Tips and Tricks is a Painter Class

Hi Karen,

I print out all of your Tips and Tricks Newsletters and find
them immensely helpful to me in my learning stages of Painter.

This one is no exception.

Jan Kunz is one of my favorite portrait artists, and to see how
to use her principles with Painter is just a treat for me!

Mostly I paint portraits using digital oils, which I'm comfortable
with. But I also love the watercolor effects on faces.

Now I have some great guidance.

Karen, you may certainly use any or all my words to help others
understand what your "newsletter" is all about.

I suppose there is always some risk when you subscribe without
knowing exactly what you'll be getting.

But your tutorials are so much more than a newsletter; each one
is a whole class of instruction within its 30-40 some pages.

And after the first couple issues I realized I'd be sticking around.

So THANK YOU! with all my voice!

Barb Hartsook
