I decided the only way that I will sketch more is to take a class. Jane LaFazio has this wonderful class on line. It started a couple of weeks ago, but I had the Holiday Show & Sale at the Beach Art Center to kick off.....so I didn't get on the same schedule. The show was a big hit Friday night we had a great preview....sold a few paintings plus a few things from the gift shop!
Let the Games Begin!!!
This was my first entry........she has great little video's, plus a few pages from her sketch books. Having Fun!!!
Bonus Sketch - A Orange
This was the first Lesson.......stay tune!
PS Can't believe I haven't posted since September....I am way too busy!!! (can you keep a secret? going to do a new plan for 2014....maybe an online workshop....)
I have about a 100 of these wonderful Poppies pictures from Steamboat Springs, Colorado.
We just returned to Florida so I'm trying to catch up.....will start teaching at the Beach Art Center next week. We decided to do a Tuesday night class. I will teach the same project for Tuesday & Wednesday. I'm so excited about all the new happenings at the center....Check out our new class schedule.....
Well I did it!!!! Signed up for Leslie Saeta's 30 Paintings in 30 Days. I did it a year ago .... It truly motivated me to painted first thing every morning. This was painted from a photo that I took this summer in Steamboat Springs.
Dreams is posting a small watercolor sketch daily. She will be giving it to one lucky follower! Sign up for her blog post to be in the drawing! With all the travel this summer, I'm doing little pen & watercolor in my journal. Today I decided to try one from her posting ....join her in France via little videos and photos
Angels' Trumpet - Jill Macfarlane a friend and Florida artist ...... posted on Facebook....
Angels' Trumpets belongs to the nightshade family and is highly toxic. Keep the plant
away from young children and pets, and gardeners should wear gloves to prevent contact
with the plant's sap!
This painting will be in the Society of Decorative Painters Magazine Winter Issue later on this year. There will be step by step photographs, plus step by step instructions with a drawing. If you're not a member
you may want to join for lots of fun projects. We also have a National Convention, plus several regional mini conventions. I usually teach at the mini convention in Columbus, Ohio.
I can't believe I haven't posted in over a month....it's been a little crazy with teaching, plus
I've been spending a lot of time at the Beach Art Center.....It's the busy time of year
for us with all the snowbirds taking classes plus all our fund raisers activities are scheduled at this time.
We launch our new marketing branding plan this month with Facebook.
