Absolutely beautiful!! I too draw, but have not done so in years. 
Some one at work saw a "doodle" of mine, and I've been asked to do portraits of some people 
that I work for....but in a more cartoon manner. I was looking on the internet for some ideas, 
and came across your site. Your drawings make me really want to sit down and draw again....
and encourage me to want to learn more techniques....
Thank you

it's been a while since i last held my pastels, i lost interest when problems started piling up, 
quite ironic cuz the reason i took up pastel painting was to manage my stress which caused 
my blood pressure to shoot up. i just felt i wasnt improving in my paintings. i thought my
problems were hindering my artistic inclinations & i felt frustrated when i viewed works of 
others which were very good to say the least. your work & lessons on the web gave me the 
boost i needed very badly. now i'm back on my easel. patiently trying out the tips and lessons 
you shared. and i'm surprised at the results, i see impovements in the end resluts of my 
sketches & paintings. thank you so much for your good heart. god bless you!

Your drawings are wonderful. Congratulations
I am a designer but not so much as you.
Do I ask you you have some book for sale?
Do one have it is possible you buy him/it in Brazil?
He/she/you would like a lot to learn to draw better. You are a great designer and painter. 
I liked your work too much.
He/she/you excuses me if he/she has some mistake it is that I don't know how to write in 
Therefore I used a translator of the internet. I hope gives for you to understand 
My questionamento. Thank you.
A hug

Dag John,
Dat was schrikken, maar goed afgelopen...Zo zie je maar ieder moment in je leven kan je alle 
kanten op gaan!
Gelukkig zijn jullie ongedeerd!! Daar drink ik er dan een op!
Ik heb je beeldhouwwerk bekeken en zie hoe je zo langzamerhand heel mooie objecten maakt. 
Je probeerd volgens mij zo "basic" mogelijk te blijven.
Het laatste werk,in je tuin is geweldig!
Groot en kleurig!!! Ik denk nog vaak terug aan Doesjie Corsau (is dat goed?)
Ik heb een 2e prijs gewonnen met een schilderwedstrijd en mijn schilderijen verkopen aardig...
Wie had dat gedacht!
Voor nu groetjes uit Rota van ons beide. P.S. wij zijn Juli,agustus en de eerste twee weken 
van september "on the road" doei!!

I have been 
trying to view your free anatomy lessons and have been unable 
to do so. According to your site I need to be registered in 
order to get access to these. Where do I need to go to do this. 
I am an unpaid advisor to AR5 which is the art club for Ivy 
Tech Community College in Logansport, IN. So, free is affordable. 
Would it be possible for members of AR5 to get access. Not all 
members are visual artists. Most are merely interested in art. 
We make several field trips a year to the Indianapolis Museum 
of Art and galleries in close proximity. We have several local 
artists that we have visited in their studios. We have had stained 
glass artist Dan pearson give a demonstration for the club. 
We have also had artist Don Kegarice display his art in our 
library and demonstrate wood carving for the club. If you would 
be in the area, we would like to have you visit for a club meeting 
and show your portfolio. Let us know if you can allow us access 
to the free lessons and any interest you may have in our art

Your art is amazingly beautiful! You have so much talent and are an inspiration to me 
and artists all over the world.
I find it truly amazing that you are just as good at drawing close-up animals or people as 
you are at drawing landscapes, and more technical objects.
Exceptional art.... i can't wait to see more :o)

Hi John, You are gifted and I can see that you create from your heart and soul. You are truly gifted. 
Thanks for sharing a part of yourself with me.
Life isn't easy and even harder as we grow older. But, just maybe if yours 
or my life was easy we wouldn't be able to give back what we were blessed with. And
by sharing we heal slowly inside and the people who view you 
are also heals. Not in a second but in time.
Artfully, Jean in (Maine)

Beste heer Baselmans,
Masha pabien met uw vermelding in de Wikipedia! Ik ken u eigenlijk alleen van uw brieven in de 
Amigoe en Antilliaans Dagblad, maar toen ik in de krant las dat u opgenomen bent in de 
Wikipedia en de illustraties zag, dacht ik "Ja, volgens mij heb ik ook les gehad uit boekjes 
met uw illustraties"! Zo leer je 35 jaar na dato toch nog iets bij!
Groet, Jeanette

I recently was inspired in sketching a drawing of my own from the soul.. an experience that 
I lived through.. there was evil surounding me.. at the time when I drew my drawing.. 
I wasn't sure what she meant.. but I realized I had drawn my soul in peril but 
was protected my goodness
Thank you for allowing me to visit your site.. It gave me confident with my experience 
in my own soul drawing..
Jasmine god bless :)

Thank you for sharing your art process with us. It is a generous thing to do. I, too, like to draw  
with ink and you have inspired me to do more as I have gotten away from it lately. 
Your interest in all things allows me to see other "worlds"... not only the beautiful drawings but 
an inside look at where you've been and what you have observed. Thank you again. 

There are infinit fabolous paintings which take my soul to peace and relaxation.
may God bless u.
may u live long !!!!!!!!

What a wonderful tutoral on a very complex techique. Thank you for that John. 
I should think you would do well to teach such technique to aspirering young 
astists as an alternative to the computer age mass blasts. 
That being said, one of the better tutorials on that technique can be found in 
the forum and was well worth the visit.
