Learning to Paint…

Ive decided to go at the paint nights from a little different angle. Instead of covering up our mistakes with wine, we will learn to paint and then create our own masterpiece using the techniques! My most recent endeavor is “Learn to paint: Tree edition”.  I created multiple examples of how we can blend colors to create different skies, and use dark values to create silhouettes in the foreground.

The next Learn to Paint session is on October 11th, 2015 from 2-5 at The Stone Mill 1792. We will be exploring blending colors, and making trees. I hope those attending will bring ideas for their piece so I can assist them in creating something they’ve always wanted.

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!

Super moons and Sunsets

With the beauty of the sky every evening,
we should be in awe of the universe and give thanks for all of the things the day has given us.

With the beauty of the sky every morning,
we should be in awe of the universe and give thanks for the infinite amount of possibilities available to us.

Our sunset paintings delicately manifested themselves on our canvases while the wine flowed.

We had sweet and salty, and dark chocolates as our guides. Along with the sweetest of Blackberry wine from Logan’s View Winery, Moscato pink Champaign and a nice Cabernet Sauvignon.

The palm trees danced in the cool breeze after a hot summers day.
