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.


Painting in the woods on the Breadline Trail

I am having a hard time getting my photos to go to my computer (something seems to have changed), so am working with Blog Go on the iPad.

My friend Be and I set up our easels just off of the "Breadline Trail" on Tuesday (in case someone was hiking ... but the whole time we were there, not a single person - or bear - wandered by!)
 We found a great little sunny opening with a stream 
and a bridge - lots of skunk cabbage, Devil's Club and GREEN.


Blocked in with dark (Ultramarine + Burnt Umber)

 Be painting in the "jungle" (please note her hat).

And this is the start of her painting. She has covered the canvas already!

Here is my painting when we ended our session. I like how the orange pops through now and then and how it is subtly under the paint on some of the bridge/walkway timbers.

There may be more of this one another time.

Happy painting!
