Totally novice painter here! Thanks for a great tutorial! What's the secret to your crisp lines? Mine tend to lose the color have way through a stroke and take on more of the canvas texture. Should I add more water to my brush?
Also, I'd recommend talking much louder. I can barely here you on my computer speakers in the end! Still I love your style, very easy to follow 🙂

What book do you paint in? Is it normal acrylic paint? I'm running out of wall space so thinking might just paint in a book 🙂
