I’ve attempted watercolor over and over again. I’ve finally painted something that I’m pleased with. I think I’ll get better with practice. In fact this was done with the bird upstairs and me down. After I finished, I went upstairs and looked at him and this does not look like him. The next one should look better., Continue reading
I guess I’ll be painting a parakeet. This little guys name is Peter he is 7 weeks old and our new addition to the family. He is an English Budgie and supposedly going to be a little bigger with a better disposition than American Budgies. You learn something new everyday. I’m just so excited to have a pet again I have to share!
Left is water soluble oil painting using Lukas Berlin and Lukas Berlin & water soluble linseed oil. Right is traditional oils using richelson oil paint lavender spike oil with walnut oil. Traditional oil were much easier to work with. Alla prima painting. Spike oil bought from the art tree house. They are a “non toxic art supply store”.

I was told at my Art guild meeting Saturday, “next months meeting you have to do an oil painting demo.” I’m in panic mode. I paint to relax. Some times my paintings look pretty good, other times not so good. This is what I did today for my practice demo., quick, easy, not a lot of paint. Does anyone have any input, ideas, constructive criticism. I am welcoming any input!
Always a zoo. Painting with Wendy is like Dr.Dolttle on steroids. You never know what varmit she will have accompanying her while she paints. She has 2 pet rats, Mishku & Cinnamon and her sisters dog, Brody intrigued by them.
I’ve tried watercolor again this time in a inexpensive watercolor sketch pad. I’ve throw so many expensive watercolor papers away. Trials are better this way until I learn. I’ve got a long way to go.
I started my own beach painting but it was not working out. I’m a fan of Tom Brownings art. I picked this Santa painting to copy and I added my own deer. He is not a reindeer, but it is a deer. I had fun doing this one. I even ordered his oil painting book “Timeless techniques for better oil paintings”! His paintings are beautiful. His book has good reviews. Hopefully I’ll learn something.
