Painting has always made me happy. Enjoying being Volunteer Artist-in-Residence at Arlington Court National Trust Devon
They're lovely Ann. I especially like the one of the boat!
Thanks Eileen :)
I love the looseness of these.... I tend to try and put a lot of details in where they aren't needed. I really love them. TFS
It is always a tricky thing to know what to add and what Not to add. I have a rule of thumb : The FIRST thing you see that interests you in a scene, is the Main Focus for your drawing. Hope that helps. (In fact you have given me my blog post for the Useful Tips blog today, thanks for that Emie) :)
Hi Emie, I've done a blog post based on your comment. Thought you may like to see it :http://usefulpaintingtips.blogspot.co.uk/2016/06/how-much-detail-to-add.html
I love these, especially the one with the boat. The colours of the scenery, then the splash of red in the boat are so perfect. You used the perfect red!
Thanks Marie, you can't beat a spot of red in a picture :)
Such calm paintings. Makes me want to jump in an relax
Thanks CJ, that was exactly how it felt to be there by the river :)
Just lovely Ann, always a pleasure to stop by!
Thanks Christine :)
They're all lovely but the sailboat is outstanding! :D
Aww,, thanks Robin...I think that's the one that will be a bigger painting eventually :)
Beautiful, Ann, I love the khadi paper effect!
Thank you Judy, I like khadi paper but it needs A LOT of paint as it absorbs so well...still, that makes it more a challenge, lol :)
