No problem. You're my hero too, because I was kind of alone in my gallery, but your support made me push myself farther. Just keep pushing, and you'll understand your style and favorite methods. And don't forget to paint from photos. And sometimes just try picking colors from different parts of some photo (one without heavy retouching with natural colors and tones), like light and shadow, and look what colors and values you get each time.
