Google recommended to me… Jason Walcott who has posted hundreds of short YouTube videos on mixing and using oil paints to create fine art. Manson Walcott’s videos enhanced for me what I learned from Marco Bucci’s fascinating lessons. Such talented men. Walcott’s videos are interesting. Some of his videos go over using limited palettes like William Payne, Anders Zorn, the printers palette (CMKY), and Split Primary Colors (3 warm, 3 cool, and B&W). His concise and informative videos are very helpful and complements Marco Bucci’s informative digital color videos.

E.H. Gombrich's The Story of Art book is so good! Page 480 live active painters vs. dead masters and American's rebellious nature influencing Europeans. The Paris Art Exhibitions!!!! Gosh, there is so much for S&M to chat about. It reminded me of David McCullough's The Greater Journey: Americans in Paris book and "not all pioneers went west!" Can you imagine being born & raised in America and then experiencing 1800s Paris?!? A fantastic read.

PAFA is hosting 150 Years of Women in Art. The building is magnificent. Can you imagine studying art there in the 1800s? Present-day? How about an S&M virtual review of the Barnes Foundation. How about an S&M chat on the Bauhaus House movement, its teachers, and its offshoots? Love the Bauhaus House and Tom Wolfe's book!  Black Mountain College? The Art Institute of Chicago? Yale? If you had a "do over" where would you go to study art? Italy!?! Paris!?!

Create a sortable database of books and other resources that S&M mention in their podcasts. I realize this is going to be an extensive list. NOTE: I just noticed that you added a comprehensive list with links and pictures to the "Expressionism - Draftsmen S3E14." Very nice. - - - Last night I started to read, The Story of Art by E.H. Gombrich, which I have owned for years and am delighted to find it full of interesting comparisons and items such as "The Expression of the figure determines if a person likes or dislikes the picture." The BBC Power of Art by Simon Schama starts with Caravaggio! What a great beginning of the series. It's free on YouTube. In his animation book, Preston Blair covers a lot of helpful drawing tips and states that good drawing is the cornerstone of success. Love it! Thanks.

First, Stan and Marshall, your latest podcast, "Cartooning," was super fantastic! Sunni Brown, the Etherington Bros., Stan and Marshall --now that would be super cool podcast(s)! Sunni Brown's TED Talk "Doodlers, unite!" She teaches how to use visual language to solve problems. https://youtu.be/7fx0QcHyrFk The Etherington Brothers' teaching the world to draw for free! http://theetheringtonbrothers.blogspot.com

Ask Clara Lieu to critique Stan & Marshall's art portfolios? That would be fun!?!

Clara Lieu left RISD and moved to Utah! Her Art Prof's Critique series is entertaining and educational. Maybe she could create a course for Proko on "How Best to Critique: professional works, your work, and your peers' work." BTW - Stan & Marshall's critiques are entertaining and educational too.

Suggestions for Marco Bucci: 1. Replace the digital painting color picker with oil paints to create color wheels with the various hues, tints, and shades with supporting artworks. Repeat for watercolors, gouache, and acrylics. How does digital translate to actual paint? 2. Intro to drawing tablets and how best to become proficient at using them.
