Hi, I'm looking for places to paint & perhaps you have sites in & near Put Valley. I've lived here 4 years, love it, but I'm sure there are sites I've not visited/painted. Suggestions would be welcome. Hope you are painting happily in Fla.
TERRY MY FAVORITE of all places to paint is The Loop,actually The Ormond Beach Loop. I it is old Florida and very scenic. About twenty minutes north of Daytona. In Daytona, I like Beach St. with the park along the Intracoastal waterway, And the interesting store fronts. The city marina is also on Beach St. and a side street goes into a nic e park behind the marina parking area. And of course the beaches over on the A.1.A. side.
Sounds like a wonderful trip! Good thing about the museum board is that it is both lighter and less bulky than most other panels and you can make a lot of panels for not much money--just take a day or so to make 5-8 large pieces. You can cut 16--8 x 10's--from one board. Depending on your palette, you have to tape them onto a piece of foam core for painting. Just take a few pieces of foam core a little bigger than the panel.
I think this is where I purchased last time:
32 x 40 4-ply Risings museum board white.
You are kidding! How could you give up watercolor. I guess what I like about it is that it can be so spontaneous looking and free. However, I do miss the colors you can get with oil and, seemingly, no other medium.
Yes, Greece is fantastic and Mel is a such a fine painter. Good workshop so far. Johanna
