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.

Ilulissat progress



I made the sketch seen on the previous post
 to familiarize myself with the scene of 
the village of Ilulissat, in Greenland,
and made a copy of that pencil sketch 
 so I could add some color with watercolor sticks.

Derwent "Artbar" watercolor sticks - don't think they make them anymore (?).

In the photo below, my colored sketch is to the left of the painting.
I don't know about you,
but to see the photo in black & white and do the sketches
helps me to get the painting set in my mind.

(Even then, things happen when painting that weren't planned -
sometimes good, sometimes ... oops.)




Pretty happy with this start.

Thanks for looking in - and if you are a painter doing 
the February 28 Paintings in 28 Days,
I wish you happy painting!
