New Painting – My View

Finally! A new painting to share. Actually I’ve been struggling with the health stuff again in the past couple of months and have only recently recovered enough to begin to start painting. I was able to keep up with drawing as I could do that in bed or on the couch but being up to paint was a bit to hard. I have to say that I’m super excited to be well enough to start again and though I’m a little out of practice I managed to pull this small piece together. It’s really just a concoction of my imagination and apparently my imagination is fairly colourful. ;P


At Some Point Every Artist Should Paint Monet Style Water Lilies

Just to clarify, I’m in NO way comparing myself to Monet – ha ha! However, I’ve never painted water lilies before and I couldn’t help being inspired by Monet and his beautiful impressionistic style. I worked side-by-side today with one of my new students (She had a lot of work to do so I figured she might not feel comfortable with me just sitting beside her and staring while she worked. 😉 ) It was awesome to paint alongside someone and talk about art the whole time – now that’s a fun day!


I also completed a little mini flower painting as well today. It was an impasto experiment that I had prepared beforehand. I had painted the paste medium on first in random strokes and the after drying tried to draw out an image from those thick shapes and brush strokes.


Last year one of my youngest students also painted some water lilies – couldn’t help sharing her work again with you! IMG_1742
