I love Art, could you guess??? But I love all art..........mine, yours, Monet, Manet, and even Salvadore Dali....My favorites vary as well as I am sure yours vary. I do have some favorite paintings, but the list is too long. My most favorite medium is watercolor. As I paint most everyday sometimes I get tired of the same thing and do look for some variations in medium as well as style. Below you can see a few of my different techniques and mediums. Guess which is my fav....If you guess right I will be raffling a small painting to one person who leaves a comment....I could be you, just leave a comment...
So here is the painting I started in the Bahamas. I posted a photo of it on last weeks blog. As you can see it isn't done yet. Sometimes the paintings I start and stop....don't get finished quickly. I really need to do the Plein Aire, when I am the in the fresh air. That is what Plein Aire is ...painting on location in the fresh air. I think this one needs something, but not sure what it is....YET... so this is a to "be continued" painting.
This is the back of an old clip board. I was going to throw it out, but if you know me you understand I like to repurpose or revitalize something old, or crummy. So with a bit of acrylic paint......I did make it pretty again. This is what I call a mixed media project!
Don't tell, but I did about 3 crummy clip boards....
I am not sure what to call this kind of art, any suggestions? Maybe its a schupture, or a 3D art. I just call it getting crazy making a Fairy House. It is made on a slice of pine from North Carolina, and many, many twigs from my Florida home. I don't think you cn see it well enough to notice, but the front door opens, and inside there is a table and even beds! Still have to make a Fairy.
This is one of my many favorite mediums, It is alcohol inks. I happened on these accidentally and after using them I found the colors and the process most interesting. The one important thing is to remember to use in a well ventilated area. Yupo paper, which is a man made like a plastic surface, is the best. With its smooth and NON porous surface the inks react to each other and float on that smooth. I am trying to find larger sizes of Yupo so stay tuned for those paintings.
This is a pretty little flower. I started this as a demonstration to show how to use the white of the paper., to your advantage and NOT use WHITE paint. I sketched the flower very lightly and then put some color into the petals, leaving lots of white paper. I think it worked. Especially when I outlined the edges in my mix of yellow paints.
Next time I will show how to save the white using a masking fluid.
I think I am a week behind in my posting, but family comes first and mine needed me, so as they say "Better late than NEVER".....who are "they" anyway...???? Keep you sense of humor and always be creative. Bye for now. xxxooo Bobbin
