"I dont think you should be so shy about people watching you paint. Your work is beautiful, you have amazing talent. Sending healing thoughts your way for a quick recovery. You need to get back out to work!"
Hi Cynthia, Thank you so much for the comment on my painting Oyster Bay. I re-posted it because the image was too yellow. Think your comment got deleted. Didn't want you to think I deleted such a nice comment! I am enjoying your work as well. Lovely sensitive handling.
Cynthia, I am quite flattered and humbled by your comments. I just paint because I truly love the whole process and feel blessed to be doing it and having many good painter friends who share my passion. Thanks again!
Thanks very much for your kind words Cynthia
I have not had any art training but have had plenty of practise
I think to be sucessful you need to practise just like with.a musocal instrument
No amount of instruction makes up for lack pf practise I did not paint anything worth viewing until
after my first 100 or so attempts
Watching someone work is, to me one of the best learning tools. Videos don't quite do the same. Though I do not paint plein air very often I have been lucky that my profession as an illustrator has me drawing and painting daily in some way. All that adds up but as with all artists there is always that long road ahead. Just remember that EVERY painting you do helps so the more you do the better.
The best demos are the ones on site. Just seeing someone work from a photo does not quite cut it. You can see ho an artist composes what he sees and how how goes about his painting process. I have an entirely different approach for oils and watercolors. If I make the cut in Easton, Md next year come over.... there are plenty of artists to watch. You can even participate in the quick draw.
Hi Cyndi My group PLEINAIRBUDDIES may be coming up your way next month. I am organizing a trip to the Michener Museum in Doylestown, PA to see the absolutely positively most gorgeous show I have seen in years the Pennsylvania Impressionist show. We plan to paint some if weather permits. Will keep you posted if you are interested. jeanean
