It has been a couple of years since I have posted, health issues, family issues, life getting in way. Am not apologizing just stating a fact and am so pleased to have started painting again.
I began back with watercolor on a couple of challenges.
This first was from a childhood friend of the Buckingham family, Marc, from a photo I took in France. Just kind of shows his roguish character.
Next I worked on a little girl from a workshop I took last summer in Florida with a teacher Stephie Butler but never finished it. Well, I jumped in and finished it. Parts I really like, many parts I don't but I finished it the best I could with the satisfaction of learning some techniques.
Am working on another watercolor , a tiger, but have put it aside as I registered for an e-class in alcohol inks with Alexis Bonavitacola as teacher. I am so pleased and am learning so many things in this class. Alexis is a great teacher and she not only is showing techniques but giving us inspiration talks,music, things to ponder about ourselves and of course the techniques of AI.
I am taking this at my own pace but am painting or reading each day. Below are a few of my works so far.
And a few more
I will try and add more paintings as I complete them.
I must say this medium is fun and exciting, has a mind of its own but one can create wonderful abstracts with it and expressive flowers and landscapes.
