Welcome to my third Blog
This painting is for my April Workshop
I have chosen what I think is a nice color combination , just because leaves are Green ! we do not have to paint them Green .
I took some photographs of the clematis growing in a friends garden , yes they were dark purple , I haven’t painted them that color at all .
And the paintings background certainly doesn’t look like my friends garden , the photograph did a great job of that , I don’t want to reproduce the photograph image nor the garden image , but use both to create a painting .
I use what inspires me , and work out a composition , with a tonal plan , choose my colors , and away I go .
I am lucky that the people who kindly come along to paint together , know by now , I am not going to paint in the normal expected fashion , as if, I can hear them say .
The colors I have chosen this time are :- Winsor Violet :- Indigo :- Quinacridone Gold :- Brilliant Purple or :- Quinacridone Magenta.
I hope you like the result , and please leave me some feed back , I am new to this Blog lark , and if you think it is worth doing them I will continue to post the process of my paintings .
HAPPY PAINTING BEV .
Well here is my second blog.
Last Friday in class ,we were having fun with choosing a new palette as we often do.
So here are the purples ,greens,,and gold ,and those in between.
I like to draw my subject ,and choose a composition ,tonal plan ,all before I start to paint .
With this information , I can then go ahead and paint in a free way , I do not like to put a complete drawing onto my watercolor paper ,then paint .
That can cause a, fill it in process for me ,which I do not enjoy anymore .
I like to see a bit of a mess ,not neat illustration.
Good job we are all different .
Here are the stages of my latest painting, please reply and add your comments good or bad ,painting and sharing with like minded artists is why I am doing this blog .
Until next time .
HAPPY PAINTING BEV
Starting to find shapes
Pulling it all together
Welcome to my first ever ,blog.
The thing that excites me to begin a painting,is normally when the color of a subject catches my eye ,and I think ,wow I love that Yellow ,or that Blue .
I don’t try to follow all that I see,but use the first wow.
As I did yesterday ,when I saw bright Happy Yellow Daffodil’s
Such a lovely cheerful sunny color.
I decided to get out my Fluid Acrylics, and see how they would behave used as watercolor on my Arches paper.
I would not frame this painting ,but thought you may like to see the steps taken.
Happy Painting Bev
