April 7, 2010

Well again I have become remiss in painting. Got very very involved in a photo project for my husband's 70th birthday and that took a month to gather the photos (I have hundreds and hundreds of both slides and hard photos) This does not count all the 100 CDs I have. Really I think I just take too many photos.

Anyway project was a huge success, all six children contributed wrote stories and we now have a beautiful coffee table book of my husband's 70 years.

So even though I have other projects I'm working on I'm starting to get my brushes wet again.

First I have been working on a demo from a watercolor site that I'm on, thanks Ruth. I haven't gotten far and it may not be the best way for me to paint as I'm definitely not a meticulous painter but I love the results of a meticulous painter. I feel that one can always take away a lot of techniques by doing the different demos and thus that is what I'm trying to do. Here is the result of how far I've gotten, have a long way to go.


And I also from the same web site had a Friday Foto challenge of two men chatting but in a different setting. I put them in my own imaginary setting and this is what I got. Some things I like but many things not so much. I changed colors of clothing and that worked and the shading of the clothing worked but some of the other things not so much. Need to just paint more and really am talking to myself a lot about "taking some time for me".

So now I have a few things to do but am going to get back to my daisy petals and maybe start something in pastel as well. The above two paintings are in watercolor.
