Sue's Pinterest pages

I had one huge Painting page that was getting out of hand! I created more specific pages for it. Still picking the Painting page for the others but I'll get there. There may be some inspiration there for you!

I'm back for another class with Master Painter, Dennis Perrin. Working small, alla prima style and in oils. Starting to get the hang of it. Kind of like learning to drive a standard car! In this class we are learning to paint sunlight in the outdoors. A few of these 'beginnings' are from the figures and interiors class but all in all these classes are about seeing values clearly in the beginning. We'll see how these proceed. Making lots of starts..... hopefully good!

The comments section is now available. In my settings I discovered I had not 'embedded' my comments in my blog posts. You can also reach me through the 'contact' widget on the right or on Google+ comments.  A little conversation would be nice....

Hot day out there. Enjoy a nice popsicle!

Cat palooza!

I had the good fortune to be invited to an Artist Trading Card group this past year. Their June challenge was 'cats' and I love cats no doubt! These cards are each 2.5 x 3.5 inches. A nice little challenge in watercolor for me too. Fun to do these types of challenges as it gets me out of my rut! Now to wait for the traded cards to come back my way..... I'll keep you posted!
