Class 15 – HoarFrost and the Night Owl

Filed under: Art Class — HART @ 2:52 am

Mostly everybody in the class was finishing up last week’s challenge to sketch and paint a bowl of petunias. I didn’t sketch last week, and just went ahead and painted my Petunias in one sitting … so, I pretty much was able to paint what I want.

Class 14 – Object Sketch and Paint – Petunias

Filed under: Art Class — HART @ 6:00 pm

I was dreading this week’s class because last week the plan was to try to paint the Northern Lights – which, I did on Class 11, the last class I took back in December 2010. Not that I was dreading the painting part, but I figured I would just paint something else instead in class, and I wasn’t sure what I was going to paint!

Class 13 – Perspective Revisited

Filed under: Art Class — HART @ 4:00 pm

This was my second class in 2012. My second class in 2010 was about acrylic colors … where we spent a whole class making a color chart from 3 basic colors (red, yellow and blue) and white and/or water. Although I wouldn’t say I am a master at this, I wanted to just start in and paint! (more…)

So, Yvonne signed me up for another 10 classes in 2012 with Guy St. Goddard once again!

Back after a week off from our Las Vegas trip, today we tried to do a “Northern Lights” type of painting. This basically entails making the canvas very wet and swooshing the paint around, and also trying to keep the foreground as a silhouette and not the focus of the painting.

Class 9 – Reinvention

Filed under: Art Class — HART @ 7:09 am

Well .. although my “Victoria Beach Experiment” wasn’t ~too~ bad … there was a general consensus that it did not meet up to my “impressionistic” standards! I agree that it seemed to lose some depth in its colors and shorelines and what the heck was I thinking about that yellow bush? lol
