Trying new things!

Last night a few of us got together for a paint night at The Stone Mill. We painted palm trees and a sunset! It was a really nice calming evening with the sound of rain off the old mills roof. It poured so hard you could hear the little creek next to the mill roar.

Below is last palm tree painting I did,

I decided I wanted to change it up a bit… So I did a whole new Palm tree painting with new techniques!

The results are below! I really love the process on reflecting on my paintings and seeing how I can use the brush to create different techniques on the canvas.  The second painting has more steps but they are the same for each area; a shadow, midtone and high light. The first painting was a simple blended sky with black silhouettes of Palm trees. With our new techniques the second painting has more depth and looks more alive!

Concentrating on getting that sky just right!



  
Everyone’s paintings turned out amazing! And each had their own flare to it!

Thanks for coming out and being creative with me!
