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.

Faces #3 begins


Here is the beginning of my next Faces painting.
 I am really loving this series.

These are all going to be on gessoed 
Masonite panel and all 6" x 6".

To help fit these small panels on my easel, I cut out a "tray"-like piece from foam-core that just fits the panel and my easel snugs them down so I can paint without shadows.

It takes a bit of work to dig out the foam but it is fine for now.
 
One of these days I would love an inset built specifically for small works,
something like this from Karen Jurick, a wonderful artist whose blog I follow.

Hope you have a good week!
