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.

Marsh Lake, YT Canada - plein air to studio painting (2)



Progress has been made! 
But it takes quite some time 
for the oil and cold wax medium to dry 
so I am not quite finished with this painting.

Began with some basic shapes.



Found this cradled wood panel at Blick's in Seattle 
and thought it was a good size for my first cold wax medium (CWM) painting.




I prepped the raw board with acrylic gesso.



Then mixed up some paint with the CWM (about 50/50),
 and scraped it on the board.  
The CWM + oil paint was thick and smooth, 
but not buttery like oil paint right out of the tube.


I began scraping into the paint. 
Oh! That's right, I put some marble dust 
into the brownish paint/CWM mix for the closer mountains. 
You can kind of see that in this shot.
This view is with the white and CWM covering the top fifth.

I love the texture already! Maybe next post it will be finished.

Thanks so much for checking in!

The texture is awesome, Teri, especially with the addition of the marble dust!
I love it, too!
