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.


Sketching without glasses

I have been thinking about value a lot lately. 
Also thinking about simplifying and ridding unecessary detail in both drawing and painting. 

So I took off my glasses and sketched a few things from life. 
It was always fun to put my glasses back on to see what I drew.

These last two are images are sketched from the interwebs:

Composition is of course something I think about, too, 
along with many other painting "rules". 
The cup in the sketch above is smack dab in the center, but it is ok here...I wouldn't necessarily paint it this way.

It is cold here in WY today! 7°!
