This new art vid on painting is titled, "Painting the Finger Lakes Plein AIr." It will include over 2 hours of in depth instruction featuring several paintings of Keuka, Seneca and Cayuga Lakes.  I think this is my most thorough and comprehensive vid yet.  Among the chapters will be a slide show on the essential concepts of painting- worth a year in art school by itself.
