    Hi! Fantastic art, and thank you so much for sharing your process 😀 The whole thing had me entranced from beginning to end 🙂 I was wondering if you might consider following up on the hint of another videos just for those Art Nouveau decoration curves?

    I'd say that the colors are more a light pastel than dull. Dull sounds a little bit too harsh. I like this picture. Thanks for giving us these tips. I also might have done oil painting and would have had some trouble with that because I'd be too impatient to wait for it to dry.

    Thanks so much for this! I love Mucha style art and being an artist myself I could not figure out how he achieved the flat paint and beautiful outlines and curls in his paintings.

    Not to be picky or anything it just really bothered me… I am czech and Mucha was too. His name is pronounced a with ch in czech the way you pronounce it would be Muka.
