Want to see how it works? Click here to see my Making a Chop video for free.

Thanks to an exclusive new service from the world’s leading video site artists can now access my printmaking tutorials–formerly available only via download–on YouTube. So they (you) will no longer have to go through the download process. All you need to do is click on a link and start watching them immediately in streaming video, with excellent image quality even in full-screen mode.

An Additional Service Absolutely Free

This new service is “exclusive” because these videos–unlike normal YouTube content–are not available to the public. They’re accessible only via a coded link, which we will send you once we receive your order. We have not changed the ordering process. Just scroll down this page to see previews of all my Printmaking Master Classes videos. When you see one you want to acquire, just click on “Add to Cart.”  You still get access to the downloads. But at the same time you receive a free coded link to the new YouTube streaming-video system. We think you will like it. You may like it so much that you won’t bother with the downloads. That’s up to you.

The YouTube system has several advantages:

  • The videos start to play immediately, as soon as you click on the link.
  • They are universally available on any computer, via any Internet connection, at any time.
  • You no longer need to have them resident on your hard drive.

P.S. Want to work with Maureen and take your printmaking to the next level? Have a look at these links:

Video Producer, Juan Carlos Romera Comments on the Printmaking Master Classes Project

September 28, 2011 Leave a comment

Juan Carlos and Mario Romera at workWhen I conceived this video tutorials project I was determined that my first subject should be printmaking with Maureen Booth. I’ve known Maureen and her husband, Mike, for years. In fact, we live just a couple of kilometers apart on the outskirts of Granada. I’ve worked with both of them on other projects and have always admired Maureen’s prints, as well as their uniquely creative lifestyle.

Maureen was actually the female lead in Bive, a 38-minute short film I made in 2006. She  played an English printmaker who falls in love with a Spanish fisherman, causing an uproar in Mediterranean fishing village. That film had a brief printmaking sequence which opened my eyes to the magic of creating art with inked plates.

Now, seven years later, I have the privilege of working again with Maureen and delving further into her printmaking world. I hope you find the experience as rewarding as I did.

What’s a Gallinero? And why would you want to stay there?

Chicago Girlz Hit Granada Like a Whirlwind

"The Chicago Girlz" in Maureen Booth's studio in GranadaThe Chicago Girlz (our affectionate nickname), an extraordinary trio of printmakers made up of Deborah Lader, founder and director of The Chicago Printmakers Collective, her mother Carol Lader and Carol’s sister (Deborah’s aunt) Janet Imerman, have set new benchmarks for printmaking zeal in my studio. These remarkable young people stepped off the Chicago-Granada flight (Janet was actually coming straight through from Los Angeles) at midday last Monday, put down their bags in the Gallinero, rested for a whole hour and then proceeded to my studio to begin making prints.
