Back To an Old Medium

So yesterday I tested the waters with my old pastel/acrylic mix. I wasn’t all that satisfied with the results, and I didn’t do all that I used to do with the acrylic, but I want to give it another go. I’ve got some different pictures of the same model, a muskox, and I’m hoping I learned a little. We’ll see how it goes when I get a chance to breathe, that will be Thursday I hope.

YouTube Site…I Made a Video!

I don’t really know whether to be scared or nervous or excited about this one! Me on camera, left to my own devices. Hmm. So, the two things I do wrong are: I don’t look at the camera enough and I say “um” a lot! But otherwise I don’t suppose it is too bad.

An Introduction

I don’t have any products yet to share with everyone, but I hope that by the time I do my next video I will. I do wish I understood how to edit the video. I don’t like that you see me getting up and down to turn the camera on and off. Editing that out would be nice.

Mostly I talk about how I got started in art and what I have done and am doing. I talk a little about my grandmother, the most creative person I have ever known. And I share some of my older paintings and drawings as well. I hope you will check it out and enjoy!

And remember to visit my store to see what I have. The promo code “myblog” is active through the 9th. That’s 10% off. So come check it out.

#DoodlewashAugust2020 August 1st, 2020 Waves

Well this one scared me half to death. Funny how the ones that scare me usually turn out better than the rest. I thought water, which meant capturing movement or hands, nothing on the human body is my forte. I went with water, I did one time accidentally catch a pretty beach so I thought, “maybe I can do it again.” I looked up a picture, which happened to be a picture of another painting and to the races I went.

Crashing Waves

I was really happy with my use of various blues and with the blending I did. And really really happy with how my beach turned out. So this was today’s painting work. Hope you like! Feel free to comment, I would love to hear what you think.
