Hi! Big fan of your paintings and LOOOVE your artrage stuff! I am just starting to learn the program and your paintings have been a source of insipration. Frankly, I am both marveled and intimidated by your command of colours and brushwork. My question to you is, how do I train or practise in order to get better at those things? :)

I believe pencil drawing is the beginning of everything. If you have your value right your colour will probably be good as well. And if your pencil marks are expressive enough you can apply the same knowledge to brushwork.

Colour theories will be extremly useful. Try read Richard Schmid's book Alla Prima

Pencil drawing eh? I never thought of it that way before. Especially when I look at your paintings, all I could think about is how to use the software to produce a particular outcome. It's like the tail is wagging the dog. I'll bug you again once I've finished reading Alla Prima. Thanks again for taking the time to respond. Cheers! Btw are you working in the UK now or have you moved?
