Hello Edo. I was very sorry yesterday to see your notice on YouTube. Is there (or are there) special reasons why you are shutting down your YouTube channel? I love your paintings and demos. I am very sorry to see you go ๐Ÿค”.

Well I was annoyed by some people onn there. It takes out the fun I have of making such channel. at this moment I make something on my website. So I only get the real interested artists. Not only the ones that have problems with my look on painting. So keep a look here and my video's will be back. regards Edo

Hi Edo. I will miss your Utube channel. I have enjoyed learning from you. You are such a talented artist and a wonderful instructor. Although I am sad that I will not be able to watch your videos, I am sadder that you are no longer enjoying the process of making them. But you are doing the right thing by stepping back, because as an artist you must have positive energy to flame your creativity and you must let go of that which is not fulfilling. I wish you luck and and happiness, and I thank you from the bottom of my heart for graciously sharing your knowledge with me. Best regards, Gail Check

It is with sadness I saw your YouTube post today, March 1 2020. Why some people choose to make negative comments, behind the shield of the internet, is beyond me. Just know you do make a positive difference to so many. I hope you reconsider, and perhaps turn off any comment section for the video. I just want to say thank you for the time you have created your videos, and hope you do more in the future.

Dear Edo, I am a recent fan of yours from YouTube. Unfortunately it was a short lived period of happiness for me. I wish I discovered your channel much earlier. Literally today I was planning to draw your 'Lonely Tree'. I would enjoy myself very much and learn so many things as a novice 40 plus year old hobby painter ๐Ÿ™‚ I respect your decision to pause your channel. But I also hope that maybe you will once again share your beautiful art, teachings and gentle personality with us all. As an artist you make the world a better place by sharing your kindness on social media and creating an environment where good people can come together and connect. Internet is an unusual environment. You will find many good natured people who truly admire you and your art. At the same time you will find jealousy, anger and people that are truly unhappy at their hearts. And there are the trolls who don't really mean what they say but get pleasure from upsetting you. All these mean people should be irrelevant to you,. Even if you can make a few good people happy that's what really matters in life! And you surely have made a lot of people happy. I know. Maybe one day I can attend a workshop of yours in person and meet you. I have never been to Netherlands, but would love to visit it one day. Thank you for all you have done and sharing your art with us. Best regards. Greg Seber from California

Maybe I am to sensitive and must not pay attention to them. But it is hard to do. Its just how I am in general! regards Edo

erg genoten van die ogenschijnlijk eenvoudige yuo tube video. heerlijk. misschien krijg ik wel een tip van u hoe op een dergelijk palety het samentrekken van de gemengde verf te vermijden is. maar eerst en vooral mijn complimenten voor dat heerlijke landschap . gr. Hennie A. ....en natuurlijk de beste wensen voor 2020

Dankjewel Hennie, ik vermoed dat je met het samentrekken van de verf granuleren bedoeld. Dit komt met bepaalde kleuren meer voor dan met andere. Merken die goedkope varianten gebruiken of gewoon het pigment niet fijn genoeg wrijven. Als je hierin te ver gaat kan het zomaar kapot gaan en pigment is duur. Kobalt Blauw granuleert minder dan Ultramarijn blauw. als je er weinig last van wil hebben is het merk Schmincke erg goed. Ik heb dat ook en soms mis ik het granuleren gewoon! ik heb meer merken hoor. Daniel Smith granuleert erg en Lukas verf. Alleen Lukas is veel goedkoper en DS een hype.

Thank you very much Peggy, I wrote this article mainly because my way to where I am today was a long way. And looking back what could I or should I have done to make it a shorter way and get better in watercolour or any other medium way sooner. So I looked at the top artists and they are one with their instruments. They don't have to think about mix or wich brush they have to chose. Just focus on the painting and they make winning art works. You know my You Tube channel, practise the simple things. paint a sketchbook full of them and you will know your medium better. regards Edo

Thank you for this post. I am a beginner in watercolor and in painting in general for that matter and I had just realized this week that I must find my own style. That I have not yet done but I now know it is certainly what I must do thanks to your post. I stumbled upon one of your videos on YouTube recently and enjoyed it very much. I have watched several of them and thanks to you and other talented artists who share their work on YouTube I keep learning. Of course I keep practicing and try not to let the frustration get me down!

Thank you very much Halina! Painting loose is something I practised for years. so it looks loose but it is not so easy I discovered!

I like watching your painting, and I like the loose technique. Thank you Edo for sharing this.

30C and I send a winter snow landscape. haha! I can imagine it looks weird when you are use to a summer with Christmas. We have Bondi Beach rescue here on tv and indeed New Years day one of the hottest day in the year. While here it is most of the time below zero. Merry Christmas Liz. glad you liked my watercolour.
