Exaggerate the essential; leave the obvious vague. - Vincent van Gogh
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.

I may have mentioned before that my theme for this challenge is "Stuff In My Refrigerator".
I am posting to my blog by "Blog Go" so we will see how it works. This is the progression for "Cilantro":
The photo above is the charcoal sketch and alcohol wash to get started. Forgot to take photos of the midway point, but this is the finished painting.
