    I just finished our seascape exercise in the S201 class. Our focus is on Brush Angles. I found myself continuously asking myself, where is my hand on the brush handle, what angle as I going to lay my brush against the surface and am I painting a highlight, mid tone or shadow. David is getting us to start thinking like the masters. This is just what I need to help me take my skills to the next level. I also painted this on my first homemade canvas panel. This class is full of knowledge and David makes it fun to learn. If you are not signed up for this class, you need to be.

    I've been working on the watercolor techniques from the watercolor and gouache studies DVD.....Here's one that I did for the June challenge for Wet canvas watermedia challenge. fussed w the background and dirty water shadows for adjusting the depth, so much easier when you don't have to preserve the white! It got a good review in the challenge.....w hostess's permission to use her source photo.....Lilies

    Good morning, Friends!
    I am in Sidney enjoying time with the Grand-girls and having fun in Arts Center. Spring is here! The mornings are brisk and the afternoons mild. David and the dogs are out bright and early every morning enjoying the sunrises. The birds outside singing and calling. It is so busy and loud, I am surprised David can film!

    To fly, Denver International Airport is the closest. From there, you will need to drive 2 1/2 hours to Sidney. It is a beautiful drive and very easy.

    There are several hotels in the area; Best Western, Fairfield, Days Inn, Hampton Inn and more. You can look at Hotels.com to see the variety. Some offer smoking rooms and can accommodate pets.

    Hi Betsy, Just checking in to say hello and hope you are happily painting. I'm onto the new rose class this month as my roses are seriously in need of practice. I know you said the Paint it Simply class was helping. I do hope you are able to go to Sydney again this year, still time to decide. I hope your medical costs are more behind you than ahead. Been there myself in 2018 with recurring BC and doing well now. I'm sorry I confused you with my username. Yes, friends call me Bobi and when I order, I am officially order from David, I am Roberta, so I surely confuse folks. Anyway, happy painting. Just wanted to say hi and sorry I am so late in doing that. Spring and summer will be better for me I hope!

I am also taking the rose class, as well as the color theory class. I am definitely going to Sidney. Have my flight and hotel all booked. I hope you are able to come, too! Not sure if you were travelling alone last year or not. I am not bringing my husband this year. It was way too long for him to sit around while I painted all day, and then I felt like I had to stay with him in the evening, so I missed all of the evening events. As well, it will save me money . I have a room booked at the Best Western Sidney Lodge. If you are coming alone, would you be interested in sharing my room to save costs?   More ...

      Yay, glad you are coming, too! :-) I got my flight and hotel reserved via Denver as well and will rent a car. I will be there from the start to the vYay, glad you are coming, too! :-) I got my flight and hotel reserved via Denver as well and will rent a car. I will be there from the start to the very end this year. I will be next door at the Hampton just a stone's throw a way. I have a confession to make—I snore sometimes with nose issues, so you won't want to share a room with me, but I would love to eat some meals together, share paint ideas and projects, and laugh like you got me to by the end of a long day. With the rental, I can also take you to and from the art gallery if you want to save there. It is such an easy drive from the hotel to the gallery, I wouldn't mind. I am going into Denver one day early to visit my brother first in Greeley, CO, just south of Sydney for a day first. I could take you back to the airport to depart if the times work. Email me when you get a chance to connect at robertastudio@aol.com whereupon I will give you my regularly used email. address.

    Well, just getting back to brush painting. Life has been fun (is there a sarcasm flag anywhere? :-D) I've been busy with other things and am just now starting back on the flowers class. I just finished (maybe) this piece this weekend, and I'm mostly happy with it. the yellow flowers were a bit of a struggle but I persevered through. Still miles and miles to go.
    • Judy
      Like the smoothness of your background and Table top, showing your highlights and shadows.

I think the background had a few more than normal (couldn't decide tone) but the table was relatively quick... I think it's about 6 or 8?? layers. Start with sienna and umber for under tones, then applied reds and oranges then toned back with greens and more umbers, etc....  More ...

    hi! I just completed the flowers from lesson 5 casuals......really tried to focus on brush, edges petals 1/2tones to get some petal studies in. I worked mostly w the flat4 fus & filbert 4fus (even though I took out my 8fus rnd..old habit) for shaping petals the new way. This is my third or fourth practice on my board, finally ordered more crescents. I'm starting to get the feel of turning the brush just so, tacking and tones...my leaves today are secondary & there only for contrast. pretty good results. Thanks again & Happy mother's day to all!

    Hi! Judy, DeAnn, Betsy, Cindy and trhoades9, Thanks for you likes and comments, this is very encouraging! I've enjoyed these last two months and have taken on a bit of a challenge to see how I'm getting along. I also belong to Wet Canvas and have been in their watercolor gallery channel for years. I final entered one of the acrylics based on the casual flowers (blue cluster redo!)and it was well accepted, so it'll be in a show next week (local artist's) along with the daffs and the forsythia and daisies! While I was there I dropped into watermedia and picked up reference pix for May's challenge. Well wouldn't you know one of them was flowers...with petal and lighting and...…...guess was I was doing yesterday and today??????pix completes...two practice boards, 1 redo and two hrs again to day but here it is done with watercolor mediun,h2o titanium white(gouache) hope you like it!

    Hello Everyone, I had a great day cutting boards, making linen canvas boards. Can't wait to paint on one of them tomorrow. I need to fine tune my cutting of the linen after it has dried on the board as my cuts are not completely straight.( I'm probably worried about something that I don't need to be as this will be covered by the frame). I'm excited because now my hand has been in every aspect of my piece of art from surface to framing. My husband & I have made a couple of frames so far. But just as learning to paint roses. I takes practice to make perfect.
