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 Dad, progression Day 1

Ever since I did Mom's portrait, I wanted to make its mate, my Dad!
 ...and finally it is on the easel.



Ok, here is the beginning - the sketch with charcoal.



Set with an alcohol wash. 
I like how the charcoal sketch sets the values for me...which I hope to follow with the paint.
