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.


Swoop plein-air - Brooks Range, Dietrich River Valley

Since it was early in the day, we stopped at another spot 
(a gravel pit actually, as shown)
and I made another painting sketch.

The Dietrich river is between the road and the mountain.

I don't know what the name of this cool mountain is but I have named it


because that is how it turned out when I painted it.
As you see, the real thing doesn't have that much of a swoop.

I would love to stand on the top of that point.

I don't have the finished version yet, will post later.

Oh, and yesterday I got a plein-air sketch done when I went with the Plein Rein painters to Thane. It was a gorgeous gorgeous day! Will post that tomorrow.

Thanks for checking in!
