This week’s painting is another for the Fall showing. I’ve always dreamed of painting wildlife as I am an animal lover; I finally got brave enough to do wildlife painting and like the result. This little painting was also done for the Fall “Curiosity” show in St, Albert. It was also painted using the double primary pallet – no tube colors were used without mixing.
Remember me blogging about the color class I took earlier this year? There is a FREE one coming up soon. If you are interested in attending, the link is: http://www.celebratingcolor.com/pwcc-class-description/free-color-webinar/
This week’s art book review is “The Art of Perspective” by Phil Metzger. It is comprehensive information for artists in every medium. Among the areas covered are atmospheric -perspective, detail and edges, size, spacing and overlap, values and shadows. The book also explains in great detail one, two, and three point perspective; including curves and reflections. Under the heading special problems, it also covers many unusual subjects such as hilly streets, columns, dormers, and tile floors. The book was an enjoyable and informative read and will be a permanent part of my reference library.
My time these days is spent matting and framing paintings for shows when I’m not painting. I paint every day now and it really helps me to stay grounded, learning and improving.
