After getting home late from dinner I asked Pattie to pick another item from her wall of collectibles.
I painted the Beluga statue for the second time. This time I zoomed into the statue much further and focused on drawing and major shapes.
Joaquín Sorolla, one of the great painters from Spain. His work has always amazed me.
Mostly known for his images of cakes but I really liked his landscapes.
Pattie’s favorite animal in all the world is the Beluga whale and today I painted a figurine of hers that features this majestic creature.
I found Joseph Alleman online yesterday his work captures breathtaking landscapes with such simple virtuosity.
I finished up yesterday’s dolphin painting and did a second simple painting of an apple. Lots of fun today.
I can’t think of a better place to store art that influences me than here on my blog. This post is all about the amazing…
I had to stop this painting early.
After a great day hiking I was really excited to begin another painting, but my energy for this painting began to dwindle early on.
Today’s hike was on three of the Cougar Mountain trails.
Back to the Buddha keepsake today for another oil painting.
Double Oh Seven painting. I think this is the best one yet, but far from where I want to be.
This was a painting where I focused completely on drawing as accurately as possible and nothing else.
So after last nights painting I realized that the largest problem for me as an artist currently is my drawing.
Do you stop and listen?
After today’s painting I feel like I need a reminder of who I was as an artist before I stopped painting over 5 years ago.
New Site layout and UI.
So I did several things different for this painting beside painting something different.
Fourth painting. This painting was going so well, then it fell apart close to the end.
Possible new painting for the future, thanks to the wonderful wilderness here in Washington.
Third painting. This one didn’t go as well as the second.
So, after the first painting I tried to learn from my mistakes and take my time drawing and working on the value.
This may be one of the biggest steps I’ve ever taken in all my life. A true commitment to art making daily.
