Painting & Drawing Exercises
Because of my books on color and painting techniques, I have received many requests to place painting, drawing and color mixing exercises on my website. I hope you enjoy these exercises and find them fun and helpful.
Due to so many of my tutorials and free lessons being plagiarized, I am forced to place this notice stating
that ALL tutorials on my website are for the express use of visitors to the website of William F. Powell and may
not be copied, pasted, or posted on any other website or used or reproduced in any other manner without
