EBSQ Chat Room


One Orange Leaf by Harlan
One Orange Leaf by Harlan

Harlan will be giving a Live Chat on the science behind Oil Painting. This includes the chemical processes that naturally occur when using this medium and explain how to properly construct an Oil Painting. This all sounds terribly complicated but it really is not. Harlan will provide you with enough understanding of the fundamentals so that you can paint with confidence that you are adhering to time honored methods.

Among the topics Harlan will discuss are choice of foundations, primers, use of oil paints and mediums, varnish and storage.

Harlan has been creating art since she was a small child. While adept at multiple media, the one in which she works the most often is oils. The small, often overlooked details of nature's beauty are on what her art most often focuses. Harlan lives in Detroit with her family.

EBSQ Live! Procedures

You can join the chat through the EBSQ website by simply clicking on the chat button on the community page of our site. Pick a nickname and select "login."

When you enter the chat please be patient as things get started. During Live! presentations please refrain from saying "Hello" to everyone who enters or "Bye" to everyone leaving early. Though that is nice in casual chat it is not conducive to staying within the schedule and you can always stay to visit for Coffee Talk after EBSQ Live! wraps up!

As the Live! session begins there will be a short time for any announcements and an introduction of the first presenter. Each presentation has 10-15 minutes scheduled and a 10 minute question/answer period afterwards before the next session starts. Resources and visual images may be included in some of these mini-workshops for you to click on to open them in your web browser. Questions and comments will be taken in order and if you don't get yours in then please feel free to ask after Live! concludes. If you like what you are seeing and want to have a copy of the information, then keep an eye out for the Session to be posted on the web for you to review later.

Are you new to chat? Don't worry! It is as simple as typing. However, you are not required to actively participate during the Live! presentations so sit back and soak in the information.

EBSQ Live! Rules of Conduct

This is our professional forum for real time exchange and all conduct should reflect this standard. Any inappropriate or abusive behavior will result in the immediate removal of the offending party from the EBSQ Live! session and may even result in a permanent ban. This is not debatable.


If you have an area of expertise and are interested in submitting an idea for conducting a future EBSQ Live! presentation then please contact Melissa Morton at
