Oil Paint

I am working on a new painting. This weekend I wanted to bang my head against the wall because of it. But today I can kinda see it coming together. For me the hardest part about the paintings are getting it started. I struggle with that whole part of it. I have the same problems with trying to write a paper! The intro is always the hardest. :) Anywayyss.. I was mixing some greens because this painting is mainly GREEN. So I wanted the perfect green for me. I finally found it after mixing many different ones.. Van Dyke brown and Viridian (Hue)! So excited. Its a bit dark but I like it that way! I have a couple of things to do. I have to go to Wal Mart! Wal mart is enough to ruin my day. I also have to take some avon to a costumer. Then off to teach my art class. Then I can paint again. So I should go so I can paint for at least an hour more today before I have to join the rest of the world outside.. (saddness) I could stay in here all day and paint if they would let me.   Have a good day everyone! 


actually I just remembered! It not new. Its the one that I showed you a sketch of! I am losing it. Too much too fast. :)

Walmart trips SUUUUCK! Anyway, can't wait to see this one in progress. Have a good day.
Hi Dean. I am moving pretty fast with this one. I am almost done.. Have to do some research on the way I shall paint my leaves and then I will be back at it again. I have been taking pictures as I go along but its hard to see. The painting is awful dark! Very green. :) I do not think its going to be my best work.. but its going to be okay. And I am going to love it non the less. :)

That's the spirit!! Is it convenient to move your painting out doors occasionally to take progress shots? Works pretty well if you do it late afternoon or on a mildly overcast day. Something you might try, if it's not too big of a pain in the _ss.
