…I still wasn’t finished, however I am pleased with my progress. Last night I actually painted faster. I surpassed my original goal for this final session by actually getting both trees in and doing a little work on the pond. Before I attempt to finish this painting on my own I will do a paint-along with an artist I like on YouTube.
I hope to get into the next painting workshop at the Attleboro Arts Museum that starts next month. I really enjoyed Lisa Granata as a teacher.
Saturday, March 1st I attended a very relaxing workshop on creating Zentangles. We got to try the circular Zendala paper with the preprinted string (pattern) on it. I really liked the more challenging tangles, although I made errors one and didn’t have time to finish them. Our instructor was Karen Woodbine- her blog is BeTangled.blogspot.com
It is clear to me that I will not be finishing this painting during this first workshop. I hope to get into the spring class that starts in April to finish it and start something new. I’ve spent the majority of my time learning what colors do when they are mixed with their complements or white and Payne’s gray. During Friday’s class I darkened some hills, highlighted some (I can see by this photo, I need to blend better), and added a base of pale blue to the pond…the ochre from the base coat was bothering me. Next Friday is the final class. My goal is to add the tree to the right side of the canvas.
