Finding a corner in a round room sometimes hard to anchor down your easel Lol

personally demand A real good seat.  Like the end of the bed for lack of furniture.  Amazing how an old teacher chair can lift you away to anywhere. A Chaise Parked beautifuly in a second story room of possibilities.  The greenhouse is half finished and this will be a great spot to paint  making a built in easel.

Set climate control to calm.  Music. Coffee. Patience… deep breath and release the creative juices

Transform anything into something  as a work in progress is what I call life.

Acrylic on paper . Painting started out as drawing…

this pic was a joy to make for all emotions came out,  Right from the start I felt good and confident as the painting emerged.  Pride, hope, relief, love, protection is what came to me strongly.  To bring these emotions together create a web that helps in all paintings.  Build on strengths.  Base colors.   Not all pics will come out as planned or as desired. That’s what practice is for. Always paper and pencil to start again.  Have the best day. …

On to the next one … Charge.  Hope you like this


Remember that lighting, camera angle, quality of camera have a lot to do with the pic.   No camera takes it perfect.   That’s why originals are priceless.    Keep practicing, baby steps at times will pay off.  As does good brushes, good paper, good people to share with.  Good day All

My fave bass and his girl. Acrylic on paper 14 x 11 2018

Sometime a painting takes a turn   Wher the slightest hint of color can throw off features   Back up   Look   Put away   Work on another peice   Yank it out   Consentrate on light  areas   Create contrast to make darks deepen and light pop    If black hair is painted strait black.   Then you have no texture  nothing but a void.   Plan your highlights out  always keep the light to one side  and lightly paint waves and overall outline   This peice is a work in progress Background will change a bit  as blending down her shirt    Fix a tat.. Fix  hair   Fix nose  fix lips    Last touches    I have a hard time finding the end
