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.


Amalga Harbor plein air/studio painting

It is still July for a couple more days 
and we have had some resplendent days here in Juneau lately. 
June was pretty darn nice too!

Weekend activities included biking out to the
with our good friends Rick and Dayna.

Then today Matt and I hiked to Granite Creek Basin 
with more good friends Julia, Liesl and sweet dogs Chelsea and Ayla.

This next little series of photos show the progression of a little painting from the Plein Rein Painters annual retreat (March), which I wrote about about earlier in the year.

This painting began on our last day of the painting retreat and we were only out about an hour when it began to snow, so we booked it out of there. 
But I had enough paint down and had some reference photos 
to finish the painting in the studio just a few days ago.

I will begin with the sketch, previously posted on 3/13/13:

Next is the rough-in, which I had not previously posted.

Tomorrow I will post again with another progression and the finished photo of the painting. 
Getting a little tired after hiking 7-8 miles today!

Thanks for viewing!
