@shar-kennett Hi Shar! I just saw your DW “timeline” painting, and what’s so remarkable is that I just painted a similar one. Mine was a fair copy of Hazel Soan’s, but looks so much like yours. i LOVE it! View
Oh poor Charlie! You and I have the same “have it all” mentality. I have enough watercolor paint for 4 people, 4 lifetimes. Phillipe’s face of fear is quite close to my hubby’s look, much like that smile icon that has the very round, large, white eyes to indicate being scared. We are much alike. And I have a ginger tabby guy who also loves it…[Read more]
While I didn’t understand most of the “ink and brush” words, techniques you used, I DID understand watercolor references, and relished how you lassoed all of those talents in your own category. Congrats on the art of cleverness! I thoroughly enjoyed viewing and laughing, out loud, especially “bipolar bear” and “rock paper scissors.” VERY funny,…[Read more]
I’m uncertain how your Doodlewash post managed to escape me, but I just viewed it, and nearly fainted from disbelief. I was a photographer, weddings mostly, for 25 years. And I would have uttered a familiar refrain to you about the precision, detail, 3D, accurate, sharp focus of your paintings. Your style is one I’ve not seen…[Read more]
I’ve always applauded inwardly your openness about your shy nature. Yet, you involve yourself in arenas that place you front and center. THAT…is quite courageous and admirable trait, Charlie. Good for you! I always seem open, strong, confident, but inside I’m jelly, hoping to fit in, offer my opinion and believe in my opinions, and art is…[Read more]
Qinghong, I am in awe of your vibrant color–such different techniques from rich, free thoughts. I loved “Together” and your wet in wet background, full of joyful women probably from a day spent painting! I am sorry for the unkindness of your former teacher. I am 60, started painting 2 years ago. And while I am better than 2 years ago, the hope…[Read more]
Ah ha!!! I love your kitties today, Charlie! I have a big ole ginger guy on my lap as I type this comment. SOO cute! Your DW version are too sweet for words.
I had the occasion to use some Da Vinci tube paints last week, not realizing I even had them. Wow! I must say they were incredibly gorgeous, and transparent! I know it’s all you…[Read more]
What beautiful, vivid, alive colors you create, Ainara. I loved looking at them all–twice! I The body’s ability to bend as in your ballet paintings was exquisite. I took yoga for years and could never come close to that. I loved how you were able to hold yourself back from adding more color, rather wait and see if adding more color could…[Read more]
It’s funny, but your article made me feel the same way in church when the pastor would encourage and welcome those congregants who were in pain, had a problem, wanted to get “saved.” It was always as though it was personally directed at me, his encouragement, suggestions, targeted towards me. Your article made me feel the same…[Read more]
Oh Charlie, how I wanted that red lantern too, but space is an issue in a condo. And I value, appreciate and learn from your “quick drawings.” As I’m still creating and painting more Christmas cards, each mini painting on it gets quicker and frankly, nicer! And I painted a “pre-painting” of each new style, on student paper, with student half…[Read more]
Jessica, thank you for such an in-depth review of this particular Grace Art set. (my hand kept typing “grave art” — big clue in that keystroke faux pas). And your wrist sock invention? Genius! As any obsessed (passionate) watercolorist, I buy EVERY field kit out there, and had the good fortune to be blessed with the gift of a Field Artist…[Read more]
Barb, I think you know how I feel about your art, your paintings. You’ve been a great source of inspiration for me throughout the last year. I am thrilled to see you showcased here on Doodlewash! Your paintings carry much love of color and subject, and I’ve always been a fan of yours. As a sister “art associate,” I am enormously proud of you!…[Read more]
Oh, yes! Pink! But one side must be painted as one of your pink donuts. Darling ride, Charlie. (and Happy Thanksgiving to you and Philippe–he’s cooking I assume?). We’ll be sure to wave to one another on our hot pink Vespas at Christmas.
