  • Artist Date

    Artist Date

    I heard about a British art show called Portrait Artist of the Year 2020. I’m on the fence about it, but over all, it’s worth a watch. I had the first several episodes on in the back ground as I did other things. I like that it isn’t like American reality tv shows that rely […]

    Artist Date

    I am still working on the artist date project from this week. I went to the Goodwill with my Uncle on Monday and bought a few pieces of art to transform. Nothing crazy. Just practicing hand lettering. It’s just not finished yet. Today, I found out I can download my old youtube videos and edit […]

  • Artist Date 5?

    Artist Date 5?

    I think I’m on 5. Yesterday started out as one of “those days.” I over slept by 2 hours so I missed my walk with my cousin, I couldn’t find the zoom info for an important class so I missed it, too, plus Gunnar begged to go out 3 times before 10am while I was […]

    Sketchbook Week of June 28th – July 4th 2020

    Here are some sketches from last week. I’m trying to get back into the daily habit of sketching. Mainly because I just love having these masonry galleries on my blog. [foogallery id=”6067″]

  • Split Complimentary

    Split Complimentary

    I kind of did two dates this week. I went to the art store. I bought some watercolor ink to try. Lemon Yellow, Turquoise Blue, (Affiliate Links) I like them, but I’m not in love with them. They are surprisingly opaque and since it was my first time mixing them, it just didn’t feel right. […]

  • Mixing Neutrals

    Artist’s Date 4! I’m impressed with myself. This week, my inner artist was cranky. She did not want to do anything. Normally, I would feel overwhelmed and think, forget it. I have no idea what to do. This time I sat down and thought, okay, clearly I don’t want to do more from The New […]

    CMY vs RYB

    Red and blue actually are the primary colors. Magenta and cyan, by definition can not be. Let me explain.

  • Sunday Sketches – Throw Back

    Sunday Sketches – Throw Back

    I grabbed one of my first finished sketchbooks and pulled out a few of the better ones. I would have shared all the pages, but it’s large and won’t fit on the scanner. I hate editing photos. I hate editing photos I took with a camera instead of scanning the most. These were all done […]

    Sunday Sketches: Meet Me In Paris!

    I know, it’s Monday, but here’s my sketchbook from Paris. My niece met me there after my week in the Netherlands and we spent our time walking around and taking in everything we could. Also eating. Lots of eating. If you want to see the Netherlands sketchbook, it’s here. As with all the galleries, if […]

  • Watercolor Workshop In Holland

    Watercolor  Workshop In Holland

    Last year, I was invited to Holland to teach a three day masterclass in watercolor on claybord. You may remember the story from here. via GIPHY It was better than I could have imagined. Margo made me feel so welcomed. I didn’t have to think about anything other than teaching. I felt like a rock […]
