a challenge most days and we only do them once, maybe twice a year. There are many different ways to paint roses and when it comes to individual petals there can be a panic on trying to get them 'right'. And so it went it today, some mumblings, stories shared, good laughter and roses were painted.
Most of us adore bunnies and we always find them fun to paint. The 'bunny season' will soon be here and it's time for a bunny or two. Everyone recognizes this little guy, we painted him up on a 5x7 card in acrylic.
This cute little chick gave us quite a challenge to paint. Everyone painted her on a white background and and a black background. She is small, on a 4x4 panel requiring several techniques and no matter what we did she still turned out cute.
This colorful project put us in the mood for spring, fresh vegetables and a fungi. A white base was laid down over the dark background in order to give vibrancy to our colors. The base work was well done by everyone and class was lively during the painting.
Can you match the base paintings to the corresponding painted ones?
This is an altered photo of trees and the moon that I posted a while back. It was a simple thing to accomplish. There are new apps out there for Tiny Planets and I am fascinated by the results. I posted one that is from a photo I took yesterday here and if you want to see really fabulous tiny planets accomplished with the help of photoshop go here.
Class is working on a rose topiary. The roses are loose and not well defined. A departure from most of our projects and each one is beautiful and so different from the others. They will be finished this week and I am looking forward to getting them posted.
It is wonderful for students to work on their own. Betty said she wanted a male Northern Cardinal to pair with the female cardinal we painted in class and here is the result. He's every bit as brilliant as the real ones sitting in the tree outside. Thank you, Betty, for sharing.
