Daryl taught me the value of mixing colors, helped me to improve wet-on-wet painting while minimizing detail. Plus tips on preparing my panels for painting. - Robert Kroeger, The Ohio Barn Project, Montgomery OH

Like a brush, Daryl demonstrated the flexibility of using a painting knife to depict bold, yet simple representation of accurate color. With many useful insights on squinting to see shapes and values, plus scanning to see color. Great experiences that will help me move forward as a painter. - Sung Rielly, Indian Hill, OH

Daryl knows how to stretch the artist to achieve while maintaining a positive and productive atmosphere. - Janice Mathes, Bluffton SC

Words cannot express the gratitude I feel toward you. You have made a huge impression on my mom and her life would not have been the same without this Maynard Dixon Workshop and the time spent with you in the desert. She feels vital and appreciated and is inspired to start painting again, thanks to you. This was the best present to me---seeing her happy!! - Betsy Bodine, TX

I really enjoyed the workshop. It was laid back and relaxed and you didn't come across with a big ego like a lot of workshop leaders do. You didn't take up time trying to sell your work either. I liked the fact that we could see your painting in progress and see how you made decisions and what your struggle was too. Your suggestions to me were good and helped me improve my paintings. I appreciated the little tips too--like using walnut oil and alkyd walnut oil. Thank you again for accommodating my church schedule. - Mary Jean Weber, Cincinnati OH

Your patience and kindness during the critique session was much appreciated. Good job! - Deb Ward, Membership Chair and President (Elect), Cincinnati Watercolor Society, OH

Thank you so much for your informative demo and talk about facial features and their positioning on the face. I learned more in the couple of hours than I have in many years of books and study. - Jane A. Hittinger

Daryl Urig gave a creative presentation to my artist group this week. By drawing the audience “in” through a participatory exercise, we had fun as we absorbed principles of painting portraiture. Group members enjoyed his intelligent critique of individual paintings in a manor that respected both illustration and fine arts approaches while encouraging the entire group to think more deeply about our work. I am impressed with his teaching a wide spectrum of art knowledge from my experience in one of his painting knife workshops last year. His professional, yet relaxed manor works equally well for advanced artists and beginners. - Nancy Wisely, Program Chair, Cincinnati Watercolor Society, OH
