I know its been awhile since I have posted a painting! I do plan to get back to it really soon! Its snowing today, and will all week we are told- - - Then I will get out and try some snow paintings! Christmas is next week and I have been doing a lot of baking and candy making----next its house cleaning, and getting ready for family. I have ordered a new set of 120 Unison Pastels, 1/2 sticks for my self!!! I couldn't afford a set of the full sticks, and Unison is one of the better pastels made. I still like them all, for different reasons, they are all beautiful.
WetCanvas has been participating in a unique thing in the Landscape forums. Artist Johannes Vloothuis from Hamilton, Ontario Canada has been holding a Webinar thru the web-site-Gottomeeting.com , its been Fabulous! You go on WC, go to the Landscape forum and look for the thread in Talk. You sign up, and watch each day at 2 pm----Its like being right there with him! He lectures on landscape painting and how to use the principles and elements of art----shows examples, shows work done by professionals and even critiques art work by us normal people! He did one of mine a few nights ago, right on the webinar, a small plein-air I did this past spring. All in all, its a brilliant thing he is doing, and it will end Dec. 22nd. For now it is free, which is great. but when F & W Media picks him up, and they will- - - most likely we will pay a small fee. Really, at this point, don't know how it will work out.
A very Merry Christmas to all!
