    Ryan, I tried a video of painting birch trees with a credit card. LOL! Didn't turn out as I liked. I will be painting over it and try your technique. I have a request that you paint something using vivid purples. Also, why don't you show your pallet and when you mix pigments? Do you use a wet pallet or mediums? I don't use mediums and like to be as basic and "raw" as possible. THANK YOU!
