Children playing blocked in, ocean waves calmed a little. I’m happy with the amount of painting I’ve done today. I probably won’t be able to work on this for a few weeks.
i have the beach…. I need to add the people, I’m a bit stuck on what, where & how. I’m going to take a break step back & think.
I am finished this one (for now). Critiques always appreciated
i attended a workshop today. We used acrylic paints & matte medium on watercolour paper. We used a lot of water… (It was out of control). I think I’ll keep using oil paints. I’m just learning & figuring out what medium I like! It was a wonderful-day with some very talented artist. I learned a lot today.
This is another lesson from Hall Groats. I like these lessons. I promised myself I would complete these courses. I am also getting used to these new inexpensive water soluable oils (Lukas Berlin). They seem a gooey out of the tube. I have been adding a little linseed oil & they work for me. I still like my Richelson oils. I ordered some Chelsea lavender medium so I can use them with out the turp. I really do like the price of the Lukas Berlin.
These are supposed to be lemons. This is another Hall Groat class. I’ll need to add details but I definitely need to give it time to dry. I used Lukas Berlin water soluable oils for the first time. I like them, I’m use to richelson oils but my asthma is getting bad so I thought id give water soluable paints a try.
This is another lesson from Hall Groats. This was fun! I need to leave it alone but,
I keep walking back in the room & tweaking it. I used a lot of linseed oil so it is very wet. I keep telling myself to stop & let it dry a little before I fool with it. I even have trouble listening to myself.
I recently joined a group called artist trading cards. We send one 2.5 x 3.5 inch painting every month to a different random artist each month. This is my first painting. It is oils so I hope it is dry to touch by August 20th the mailing date. Tiny paintings are kind of neat! I can’t wait to see what painting I receive.
This is an oil painting of chocolate chip cookies. I’m still learning. I’m using Hall Groats desserts dvd. Its pretty good learning course (a few lights turned on, the aha moment). I’m wondering if there are any other good learning dvds out there. If you know any really good ones please let me know in the comments.
