Hi Leslie~ these are helpful videos… when you are highlighting and painting your shadows, you are using the same brush as your basecoat? Does that help with the blending? I’m still a separate brush/color painter but I have a feeling that’s why my blending doesn’t look as natural…. Thanks!

Hi Leslie I love these videos. Where is the “like” button and how do I subscribe? I am doing this on my iPad not sure if it makes a difference.

Planning to paint bedroom set – have pure white- but like the concept of creating highlights and shadow – would old white and coco be best choice?
