Kenneth did an amazing job. He worked me with the details, and over the process he provided me with previews so that I could approve or make changes. He delivered the painting on time, and with high quality.

The concept was great. The only constructive feedback I would provide would be the following: 1. The brushes that were provided were all thick. I would suggest making sure each person has a thinner brush with which to write considering one of the paintings chosen had words in it. (Also, I would suggest providing a better variety of paintings that speak to the styles of the attendees.) 2. When providing guidance to an art student, I would suggest not taking the brush from his/her hand and then painting on the canvas for them. It diminishes his/her sense of ownership in the project and doesn't help build confidence. Describing technique or even having a canvas on which to demonstrate the concept so that the person can observe would be better options. This will reinforce the concept that was being taught: "art is an expression of a personal perspective." Otherwise, Regina was personable and positive with everyone. The addition of snacks was nice touch, and everyone had a nice, relaxing time. Thank you for taking a photo at the end. We'll always remember the experience fondly.

I am fairly new to oil painting and the three classes I took from Randy have been great! He has endless good humor and is able to encourage you but still offer the constructive criticism (in a positive way) that one needs to improve. Randy believes in mastering the basics with a focus on understanding values in painting. I strongly recommend him for any level of artist as he meets you where you are on your artistic journey!

I had a very good experience with Boris. My sitting was 2 sessions and I must say how blown away the portrait of me came out! I knew he was good but soooo realistic!! I actually asked him to do a second painting. That will be soon I hope!! : ) Oh and I constantly get compliments on that painting too

About

I've been painting with acrylics and watercolors for many years, mostly landscapes but also wildlife and some portraits. I also instruct a class with charcoal and watercolor medium in a senior center. I believe I have the knowledge and patience to give the best possible instruction. I am also a muralist painter. So, if you want a unique wall, contact me.
