Gouache resist: success

Well, I used the correct ink on this one and it turned out better.

This is the first painting of thick gouache. Painted over it in Black Magic ink but didn’t take a picture.

After washing off the ink. The black ink stayed on the white paper just how I wanted! Much easier to go back in and make marks when you get a ready made background!

Friday and it’s looking nice out there. Have a good weekend!

15-minute painting

My daughter challenged me to a timed painting of a photo I had just taken of Birdman. It was a cool challenge. Never tried it in my life!

Here’s Birdy with the painting. That’s my husband’s Navajo rug in the background. It’s been hanging on that bannister for years.

Finally a little sunshine here but more snow coming I heard : (.

An odd one

Happy Monday and the sun is shining today. I don’t know what to say about this painting. It’s just weird but I kind of like it anyhow.

A Posting Streak

Kerfe asked me to cover her during her move and I am pleased to say I’ve posted/painted every day this week.

Thank you for all the nice comments! Will answer to all over the weekend.

This one doesn’t seem done for some reason like maybe it needs more black. Posting it anyway!

A fabulous weekend to all. Some sun would be nice.

Landscape

Still playing around with color. Not sure if this one is done but I’m on a roll of posting and wanted to continue it. Got another one going too. Can’t wait to get home (we are leaving work at 1:00) and slosh some more paint around. Hope this snow doesn’t last but they’re saying it will.

Painting (continued)

I’m not sure this is finished even though I signed it. I’ve had a few things going painting-wise and hope to keep the momentum going.

Couple of close ups of parts of the painting I like.

I messed with the top image in editing it. That’s why it doesn’t even look like the same painting : ).

Painting 3/19/19

I’ve been painting a lot more. These take a couple of days ’cause layering/wet paint. I have another one started. They seem to be a more intuitive or free association kind of painting with the sole purpose of working on something!

I’ll try and finish the other to post Wednesday.

Living Color

I don’t know if it’s the new moon or spring approaching but I had in my head to just start splashing color around and see where it took me. This is watercolor, gouache and Black Magic ink. I kind of like it and it was fun to work on.

Progress 3/7/18

Some progress on the drawing. I almost like it like this but I think I’m going to give the ladies some color on their frocks.

I looked up old phones like the one on the desk. I really don’t think the photo is that early but it’s possible I guess.

It’s a snow day here. I’m pretty happy about that.
