The comparator mirror, a rediscovered tool

Comparator Mirror article

OK, so you are here to see a fascinating tool, that has been around for hundreds of years, but alas, and again, not much of this is shown in your modern art schools of today. There are schools, however, that do continue to explore and teach methods used by the masters. (I have a few films below that show where it is taught) This article I hope will educate and inspire you to discover more.

There are a number of videos on this subject. I have included a number of links to them within the article, and hopefully, their owners will keep them up for a long time. Because they are You Tube links, some may drop out as time goes on. If you find a bad link, send me a quick email so that I may try to find a similar video in future. As for now, enjoy the videos, they will help you better understand and give you a deeper knowledge of the subject.

So here it is. And believe me, it's a great sale. I don't think I've ever had these prices before. I hope it will help those on a tight budget.

Especially those college students that can use a break!

Still the best color lesson money can buy.

In the article on the comparator mirror, one of the fundamental things you must understand it color, and color matching. This course by Richard Robinson will open the doors for you. His explanation and tools (included with his lessons) make color matching like you see in my article on the comparator mirror seem to be a breeze.

Something I forget to mention. With opening a new studio, I also had to get rid of my antique star trek flip phone for a new modern smart phone.

Because its a smart phone it had this cool little camera. And with it, I click a lot of pictures.

I do post a great deal of what I'm actually doing in the studio/gallery daily! So follow along with me to see new work as it happens.

Follow me on INSTAGRAM "@delmus_phelps_fine_art" to see some of those pictures as I work.

Sorry for all the underscores. I'm a baby boomer, and once I set up the account, my kids reminded me of what a pain it is to add those underscores to find me. I then reminded them they hey, follow me, and you won't have to keep typing that mess in. I'll just appear in your feed.

They were impressed.

Who said you can't teach an ol dog new tricks?

My New FaceBook page! Pinterest?, Facebook? Twitter? and all that jazz!

I've created a new Facebook Page! Would you come and see it? It's all about my new paintings and my travels in creating them. I hope you will join me! Just "like" the page to have my new works added to your Facebook timeline or news-feed.

This really is a great resource, as I find new techniques and other interesting art, I will post them to the Facebook Page. And of course, more of my hillbilly humor is thrown in for free!

Delmus Phelps Fine Art facebook page

What are they all about? This is a social media site similar to facebook, or tweeter, but it's based on images only. This is an artist's dream! Soooo many pictures, but not enough time to see them all.

The buttons above send you to my page, but once your registered, you'll have your own page to set up and start collecting your favorite images!

If you really like a painting or image found on the site (Easy Oil Techniques), feel free to push that little button underneath the image!

It will post the image to the Pinterest site. You do need to go through a simple registration process, but you will not be disappointed. The pictures available are simple amazing and will truly get your creative juices flowing with ideas for your next painting project!

Facebook Like it please!

Don't forget the great addition to the site is the Facebook application!

If you're a Facebook Fan, then you'll appreciate this. You can "like" a page, and comment on it's contents so your Facebook friends can see what all the hub-bub is about, and where you spend your valuable hours learning on how to paint great things!

Spread the word! Click on the like buttons and give me your comments on the site! You don't even have to leave the site, it's all right there for your convenience.

And our readers love 'em!

Also, in the upper right hand corner of most pages, you can find my Facebook page, and follow along activities that I post in-between ezine issues.

I'm now on Twitter! I find that if you reply to me rather then direct message (DM), I'll be able to find you easier. I get so much spam these days, I rarely check my direct messages in twitter any longer.

You can follow me, and I'll follow you back, but do reply to me that you are following so's I can follow you back! just tweet an "@delmus" in your tweet box!

Follow me on Twitter

Well I hope the information was useful to you. Future ezines will be in a similar format, just different information.

Let me know what you think! Have I helped you in any way? Twitter me, or drop me an email. I would love to see some of your work!

Till next time!

This is Delmus Phelps wishing you a happy painting day!
