Third day of challenge missed…

…so on to the fourth

Well here’s a fine example of ‘overdoing’ a painting.  I was quite happy with the initial composition, but my ‘realistic’ side just had to make changes.  I’m going back to this one today to see if I can recapture the loose brush strokes once again.

…continued

Decided to scrap this one altogether.  Here’s what I came up with.

Second day of challenge

Experimentation of colour and light.

I find that when I look at this up close, the eyes appear to be looking down, yet from a distance they seem to look to the left or at me.  Anyone else see this?!

First day of challenge

So, here’s my challenge.  Keeping it loose!!!  That detail is still hindering my efforts.  Anyway, here’s what I came up with in two hours.  Time to start painting number two for day two of my challenge.

I’ll come back to this one at a later date, that path will haunt me in the mean time!

Revisions made February 2nd.

Self Inflicted Challenge

Yes, I am putting myself to the challenge of creating a painting per day for one month. I’m excited to see what I come up with and sharing the results. My challenge begins Saturday, February 1st.  A variety of subjects will be covered,  including portraits, still life, landscapes & more!!!

I just might inspire you to do the same. Paint fast and don’t worry about the results.

I’ve just decided to put a time limit on each session. 2 hours, that’s it. That’s all I get!

Stay tuned…

Class Schedule

As a passionate teacher, it is my goal to offer exciting, informative and encouraging workshops. The beginner student will marvel in their results, after just one class! By focusing on shapes, values and edges, each composition is achieved quickly and you will complete a painting after each class.

Shapes are made from the shadows, light and reflections cast on any subject and within each of these shapes is a value (light to dark tones) of colour. Step by step instruction will help students to identify each shape and which value of colour to apply. Once all the shapes are ‘blocked’ in, we focus on the edges.

Edges are simply where each shape connects. Merging the edges together through blending and creating texture, finalizes our painting.

A variety of subjects including, still life, landscapes and portraiture are offered.

NO ARTISTIC ABILITY IS REQUIRED!
