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.

Zoom In #6 Finished


After Sydney Mortimer Laurence (1865–1940), The Silent Pool

Oil on canvas, 8 x 8"
The limited palette on this Zoom In:
ultramarine blue, cadmium yellow medium, alizaron crimson, white, black.

This yellow is so orange that I could not get the lime green 
that Laurence had for the mid-distance trees and the pool. And I do
not like to use pure black out of the tube, so I added the crimson or the blue
for what I hoped would be a bit of richness.
