Fred,

My previous post I sent by mistake, so I will add this:

To divide the space into lots of cubicles is the system used by Rembrandt.

Their work is dark because of the mediums they use in oil painting. They don't know the right method of teaching their students in oil or in the drawing. That was my concern that I expressed to you long ago.

My apologies for interfering.
