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.


Finished Venus

Here is my finished Venus of Willendorf. I measured and it is 24 x 30", so quite a good size! Consider that the original sculpted figure is about 4.25" tall... Thanks to Jane (Terzis) I used a 2" brush and "got messy".

Oil on panel.

This is just fantastic! It has so much earthy energy. Also thanks for posting the info about her. I did do a google search as well. What kind of panels are you using for your oil work, Terri? Do you use Liquin as a fast drying medium at all?

LOVE it, Teri!! Great brush strokes and texture.

I like very much your brushstrokes and the colors...

Teri said...

Maggie, you are so kind. My panels are just masonite. Yes, I use a mix of Liquin and Walknut Oil alkyd with my oil paint.

K-thanks for looking, can't wait to show you it in person.

Mariela, thank you very much!

Is this me, from one of the times you've used me as a model?! Thanks for covering my head - I was having a bad hair day ;)

In all seriousness, you are AMAZING!!!

Love ya, Jules
