My Resident-Artist-In-Training....(or at least we were roomies this past week at the beach)
I am pleased to introduce to you my artist in training! He prefers a fast and abstract painting style. When not painting he enjoys studying nature, color theory, and digging into 3D sculpture work.
working in watercolors
Spending some time in the outdoors after studio time.
Studying shapes and light.
Brushing up on color theory
enjoying some great lighting as the sun sets
more photography practice... reference photos maybe?
Enjoying some down time
Our next 'up and coming' artist, contemplating a self portrait.
One of those times when the beauty is just too much for words!
I had months ago bought a portable easel specifically to take with me on this trip. As I packed I decided to leave it at home and just take some watercolors (more portable). I am glad I did, not because I wasn't interested in painting--the scenery was gorgeous and very inspiring. I was glad not to be distracted away from these beautiful faces. (When I paint I tend to get consumed in it.) What a joy it was to all be together. I still would love to have a trip specifically to try my hand at Plein Aire painting but that will have to wait for another time. Here's some of my photos.
I loved seeing the changes in the water color in relation to the changes in the sky.
Last year, I went on one of the wild horse tours and ended up painting this watercolor on the trip.
Thanks for stopping by!
