Next week we are back into watercolors in class. I have finished all of my acrylic paintings and I am posting in order of what we did in class.
The fist project was a couple of pears. They remind my of the folk art pieces I did back in the 70's.
The second was a impressionistic image of lilacs. The original looks a lot better than the photograph. Some paintings photograph well, others not so much.
Then we painted a field of Poppies. I hope you think this is bit better than the last time you saw it. As you can see I lighten it up. Mom told me she though it needed to be lighter.
Then we all painted cows. My teacher told me mind look more like a dog. I have to agree. I think it looks like MY dog. I sense Brandy's personality in the painting.
The last thing we painted was suppose to be a Southwest scene. The colors in my painting are not muted enough to be southwest, or even Colorado. Do you think it looks a bit like Fairview canyon, or Mt Nebo? I liked my colors better than the picture I was copying that was SW, but then again I liked the poppies when the field was darker... It needs a frame it will look better with a frame. Still there are a couple of places that need to be improved in this piece. The beauty of acrylics is you can keep painting until you get it right.
