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.


Marsh Lake, YT Canada - plein air to studio painting (1)

you can click on that link to learn more.

As we made our way to Whitehorse I spotted a good wide place along the road
 with a good view of the lake and distant hills, and a great sky. 

We stopped and I made a quick pencil sketch of the scene:

And a quick painting sketch as well:

Marsh Lake, Yukon Territories, Canada            8 x 10 inches       oil on Multimedia Art Board

At home, to get the feel of the sketch again, put some watercolor in a little sketchbook.

Next post will be 
more progress for the painting
 "Marsh Lake, YT" (not sure of title quite yet).

Thank you so much for checking in to this blog!

Sketching in pencil, oil and watercolor - doesn't get any better than that!
Looking forward to more progress shots of Marsh Lake, Teri.

Working each day on the oil and CWM painting of Marsh Lake, Chris! Hope to have some pics of that process. (hint: it has been FUN)
