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.


North Douglas plein air II


 Yesterday I did two paintings and here is the second one. 

I did work fast on purpose for both paintings
 because I tend to nitpick if I go too long ... who doesn't?

You can sort of see the cloud cover in the sky here 
and as you head south, it breaks up!

From the Beach     8" x 10"    oil on Multimedia Artboard

 Multimedia Artboard is very lightweight and tough. It is really great for pastels, but I tried it with oils and this actually may be an underpainting for a future pastel painting. Once the paint is on the board there is NO removing it. I liked the black surface in this case, too.
