Roy was amazing! Just showing off a few images for you to see what a terrific afternoon we had!

Lots of explanations about opacity, transparency and mineral vs modern colors


  
Each color responds differently - but maintains it's pigment


Lots of education about Golden Products.  The color chart alone is art!


So much personal attention from Roy!


This is literally more than (much more than) twice 
the amount of medium mixed with paint! AMAZING!


This combination of OPEN acrylic paints - remained
