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.

Painting of Claire "backstory"


I began with a photo of my Mom and did the sketch above. 
I think the pencil sketch looks a little like 
my little Aunt Gertie, my Mom's oldest sister 
who died 7 years ago (a few months shy of 100!).

The following are photos of the painting's progress, 
with the b&w showing the values:







Thanks for looking!
