Welcome! This blog began as an assignment in a digital art class. That was in 2008. I decided to keep it going as my art journal. It is fascinating for me to see how a painting develops, so this is where I post my painting progressions and exciting new things I find on creative blogs and websites. I hope you will learn along with me about painting, drawing and all kinds of art.

Goose Lake


Here's a bit of a start!
That part of a triangle you see is a shadow! Hope I can make it look like one.

First crack at this composition. 
Acrylic (rust color) over the white gesso...and the dark is oil paint.

#5/6 Tie - In at Dry Creek



I love to put my paintings in b & w to see if the values are working. 
There seems to be a lot of gray in this one but I think there are enough other light/dark values 
to make it work ok. This is finished. I like it.

Comments?

Essentially finished! Maybe just a few more blobs of paint...
Any input?
