Welcome to My Scene

"My Scene" is sharing a finished painting or my 3 step process to a finished painting using photographs or sketches. Asking, how can I make this scene or subject mine from refrences that hold my attention longer than 5 minutes. Some photographs are just....photographs not paintable interesting subjects. So let's began and hope you enjoy your painting experience........JoBeth

A Canvas Day

Red and turquoise are two of my favorite colors. They make an appearance in most of my paintings. I call these colors gaudy and use them as compliments. From the start of my painting experience color was more attractive than water...'watercolor'. This canvas was painted free hand....after the underpainting was applied using a 1 1/2 brush and saturated color one stroke lead to another and a pot emerged......then a few leaves....why not a fence. I don't began all paintings throwing caution to the wind.....which in West Texas this term is not used lightly....but it is a challenge to draw with a brush thinking shapes.
Try it on paper or any surface well I can think of a few surfaces you might want to stay away from.....like your neighbor's dog. Have a great paint day....JB
