Well, here I am again playing catch-up. No excuses…………
I’ve been busy painting and also creating some paper crafted projects. Today I met with my First Friday Artist friends and as usual, we had a lot to share and we also got in a little painting time.
The challenge for this month was Foreign Buildings. These challenges are wide open. You can interpret the subject any way you want – colored pencil, water color, pen and ink, charcoal, oil, acrylic, mixed media, – whatever. You get the point.
I had seen some paintings rendered in an unusual style and have been thinking for some time about trying my hand at it. So I found my pictures of England and decided to paint St Peter’s Church at Edensor. I painted the entire canvas black, then worked the color into each element, leaving dark edges. I worked several layers with glazes and also replacing the black occasionally where needed, then working color into the black again so the whole thing wouldn’t look outlined. So – for good or bad – here is the result.
And here are my friends with their paintings too. I hope you enjoy their beautiful paintings.
You may have seen the pics from last month. The challenge was Glass. Oh boy! I had fun with this one!
So I might as well throw this one in too. This was the challenge for December. We didn’t meet in January.
We all got the same photograph and we rendered the scene or parts of the scene in any way we wanted.
Next Month – BIRDS!
