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

Lamesa Class with Color

Are we having fun yet??? Barefoot and painting....discussion about color....everyone did a great job...again I was busy with critiques and everyone was ready to leave when the thought came

'group picture with paintings would have been nice'...maybe next time or better still maybe some will post on their blog.....enjoyed the day painting with wonderful painters....JoBeth

Demonstration for class

This was my demo, taught in Lamesa. Students were given 6 different color schemes to chose from. I chose analogous colors of blue, turquoise, blue violet, with the compliment orange. The compliment of orange was to be the color focus around the figures and flower shop. The building and foreground were painted wet into wet with neutrals using the turquoise, blue, and violet keeping whites in check.....while still damp complimentary colors were introduced under the awning...after dry windows, awning, and a figures were suggested with color or light/dark values...calligraphy was added for interest.....
