Welcome to "Between The Palette Scrapings", a blog I've designed specifically for the study of art. My goal here is to offer other artists ways to improve their work and suggestions for further study. This blog is intended to complement my teaching website: www.starkestudio.com. It's important to continue learning and improving and I look forward to your comments. If you aren't familiar with my work, you can visit my gallery website at www.philstarke.com. You can find out more by signing up for my free monthly newsletter.
