Painting in Progress Part 2

The second sitting for "Nightingale's Breakfast". Now I have to wait until it dries for about a week although I can still work on the seeds right now.

High Key, Low Key

Amongst the 1,000 things I am doing, I will be (hopefully) be at the Minnekhada art in the park event in August. Stay tuned. I have experienced painting in most mediums. The only medium I do not prefer is watercolor, I think Watercolor is for the high key painters. I am a low key painter and that is just my preference. Although you can paint in a low key with watercolor, it certainly takes a much longer time to achieve the level of darkness you wish. I remember being at an art demo awhile back and there was a watercolor artist who painted quite dramatically. You could not tell it was a watercolor. Her method was not washy or loose, but very realistic. I was intrigued by her method, which would be my method if I did watercolor, but I am learning to 'loosen' the reigns a bit as far as realism goes. I am painting in more of a contemporary textured style these days, however I do get sucked in to doing the more traditional work, especially with the lilac paintings you see in my profile, however they are still impressionistic and I only paint flowers that way. I have no time or patience for making every single petal or florette look crispy real. LOL. I am enjoying the textured effects on canvas like the 8" x 24" red apples you see in the gallery.

Pretty Lilacs

Go see the new mauve lilac painting I just uploaded. One of my favorite flowers. I like the 24" x 24" size and it is a current contemporary look having a square painting. What's next? I am not sure but the mind is working on it.

Finally back...

I have been away for awhile from here. The artwork is going well. I am still teaching at Glen Pine Pavillion and I do have a new Acrylic painting class for beginners starting in June. My last class there in Drawing techniques, I have discovered some pretty good talented artists that were hiding there beneath their human facades....lol I am open to accepting private students. I will come into your home and teach you or your children fine art techniques. I occasionally teach art at two Michael's stores, in Port Coquitlam and Pitt Meadows, and the schedule varies.
