You can also get your art supplies from #BlickArtSupplies just click on the link to your right→

Today we painted A bell pepper, white onion, and potatoes

We used watercolor pencils to sketch out first. The watercolor pencils will blend well with most paints. We used #ArtistLoft Crimson Red, Viridian Green, Yellow Ochre and #Premium Chinese White , round soft watercolor brush, and watercolor pad 6×6.

From Sketchbook to Canvas

When I did this in my sketchbook I decided I wanted to do it on canvas so I could frame it.

This is #Watercolor on canvas pad textured 12 × 16 .

After the paint dried I went in with a #BlackSharpie to bring out more details.

Since May seems to be Mermaid month its the perfect setting.

Good Things Continue To Happen

Winter Fest Tree Lighting 2015

 

Winterfest Tree Lighting Festival 2015
Winter fest Tree Lighting Festival 2015

Tonight we went to the Winter Fest Tree Lighting Festival.  This is the reality that Christmas is just around the corner and 2015 is almost out the door.  Where did the year go.

We stayed long enough for the tree lighting and then left because it was cold. They even brought snow  in for those who wanted to snow board.

Santa and Mrs Claus were there walking around greeting everyone, they had a group there called Heart and Soul line dancing who performed, there was a choir there singing  Christmas Carols, and plenty of food.

All in all it was a good community event.

Be sure to follow us for more festivals, museums, and events.  Like our page and leave a comment (we really do read them).  Tune into our Periscope Art Scopes where we inspire the emerging artist with tips on Getting Your Work Seen………….

Collage, Oils and Pastels = A New Creation of Art

I started playing with some of my old pieces by blending them with some new software I have.  I remember doing this once before with my watercolors where I took some watercolor paintings and reworked them in Illustrator which made some beautiful digital art.

The top one is a Collage 18 X 24 , I used pastels, cut out some pictures from magazines and then scanned this into my software to make this beautiful new piece of Man’s Confusion.

The bottom piece is a piece I had done for the Small Art Series Gallery, The Bell Peppers are  8 X 10  Oil on Canvas, scanned into the computer to make this collage type Digital Art piece.
I really like the way they both turned out and it goes to show you can re-create any piece of art making it tell a different story.

Let me know what you think about these two creations……..be sure to follow us, like our page and leave comments (we really do read them)
