My husband and I often camp in the fall. This painting, “Aqua de Oro”, gold water, was taken on one of those camping trips, mid day, of the Middle Fork of the Payette River. The autumn colors reflected in the water resulting in a golden hue. View
Fascinating! The only experience I have with ink is in card making. Some of these techniques, such as in using bleach, I’ve used, but not to the degree you have. I love it. So much to learn and see in art!
thank you so much for reading the article and commenting. I appreciate your feedback. The animals are my favorite as well. Time depends on the size and detail. For the dog at the fence, “Don’t Fence Me In!” that one took me a month of painting every night for anywhere from 30 minutes to a couple of hours.
LoriCtoo – thank you! I should’ve added that timelines also drive me. As a project manager, I’m timeline driven and that seems to have affected by art work drive too and the drive to excel at what I do! Well, I have a lot to learn yet.
Thank you Sharon! A friend of mine took this photo and I was drawn to it immediately. Once I started, I thought, “what was I thinking?!” So much detail, but I took it one step at a time, one technique at a time. My fellow art group members, often tell me that I pick the hardest subjects to paint, and I seem to, but that’s how I learn!
