After a bitof a struggle I finally pulled this one out. It's really big, so the blue wash is quite stunning. I am happy :)
Here is ther first in a new series in an effort to loosen up. It certainly makes working faster... 2 days as opposed to 2 weeks! I love the San Pedro Harbor :)
So apparently there is a big market for pastels these days. Art groups are looking for pastel teachers and I"m meeting with Destination Art in Torrance tomorrow to set up a demo. I've been reintroducing myself to pastels all weekend. This first Sedona scene came out alright. Next time I will not draw on the wrong side of the paper. :)
So, this is about finished. I'm just sitting here watching paint dry. :) It may need a little more touching up, but, I'm giong to say I'm pretty happy now.
Well this is way more nature than what I'm used to painting. It's cool and madenning at the same time.
Last week was a rough one so I'm making sureto start this one off on a good note. This piece is going to take a lot longer than I had at first aniticipated. The detail in the folliage is going to be a bit maddening but I can't wait to see the finished piece!
Finally, I am back to painting. It feels like it's been forever!
My whole world has been turned upside down with all this house drama. Getting back to painting is just the escape I needed. It can be hard to sit down and paint when the world around you is falling apart... even though you know how much it will help. At least I finally found the motivation. Class last night helped get me going.
This one has way more nature than I'm used to painting. I mapped out the main bits... I'm excited to try out some new paints... Hoping to get most of this done this weekend!
I am excited to be kicking off the new year with this soon to come painting of the famous Frank Lloyd Wright home, Falling Waters. This is another scene from up in the mountains of Pennsylvania... photo courtesy of my brother. :)
