Inspiration: Cooler weather brings bare trees and snow at home. Fall turns into winter and the holiday season, a time for family, sharing, good food and giving thanks. All good times and wonderful memories...
Inspiration: I did this monochromatic painting to show my students how to create a painting in one color using different values. It is interesting to watch young artists ages 5 to adult complete this exercise. At the beginning they are so confused but as the progress they are pleased with their results.
Inspiration: In an experimental mood, I used mat medium to adhere rice paper to #140 pound arches watercolor paper. I placed transparent watercolor on the paper and then qouache out of the tube with a pallet knife. I did not intend to paint flowers, but after looking at the under painting, I clearly saw the flowers, must be the dreary rain pushing me to make a brighter day.
Inspiration: Remembering the fall in western New York State when the hills are covered in yellows, oranges, reds, and some still green. In early October some trees are bare and others are not, those that are still full are heavy with snow. You can hear the branches groaning and cracking under the heavy weight of the snow.
Inspiration: One of my adult students has been painting a bowl of apples. As she was having a difficult time with negative painting and other techniques I created my own apples to help her see different techniques and mixing colors instead of using flat paint out of the tube.
