AEDM day 15: progress

I continue to put in a little time on my two new Munich paintings daily. I want to have them finished in a few days. I also have a couple other paintings in progress which would be nice to finish next week.

The excitement around here today is that we are finally hanging some of my paintings up in the living room. I hope I don’t get tired of staring at them every single day.

    I love the colours and the feel of your paintings. They look kind of old-fashioned and mysterious. Cool!

  3. i was chuckling when i read about your art class. my figure drawing instrutor remarked on how everyone did so much better after he shut up and left us alone (half way though the semester). i think you do a great job with your architecture – very gutsy. and on linear prespective – gaugin broke alllll the rules….

  4. p.s. acrylics are very forgiving, quick drying and less toxic than oil based paints and pastels – great for indoors.
    you might want to try the golden fluid acrylics as they can be thinned to watercolor consistency but have a much longer durability than water colors.
    looking forward to more of your street scenes, van gogh!

    Thanks so much to all of you for your kind words and support! It is so lovely to get such warm feedback on my work. Since I paint mostly at home, my work in progress doesn’t usually get seen very much. :)

    Deborah – I work primarily with acrylics, but I’ve also been experimenting with water-soluble oils recently. Not as stinky as real oils, so a lot better for home studio use. For some reason I’ve never taken much of a liking to working with watercolors. I think I’m too impatient. I like the quick-drying nature of acrylics for that reason. :)

    A favorite art class was with a local watercolour gal, who offered it for both beginners & more experienced painters. The latter were rather grumpy about being lumped together, how were 'they' going to get it? . . . she was good at 'hands off,' & broke a lot of rules! So 'new' to wc were better off! She had us do washes first, then used a hair dryer to 'quick dry' & do another wash, . . . left a lot of white space (draws the eye) it was a GREAT class! I really 'got' the diff things you can do with the fluidity of water
