This is the painting of Cape Ann .. My former blog I'd posted a sketch of it and decided to paint an 11x14" on Arches CP . I've been on the pen/ink with w/c washes lately and haven't done any what I call 'real painting' ... Putting it into my Etsy shop. BJ
Yes, a small sketch , but I am considering it a study for a larger one. I've also done a value sketch of it .. I see the areas that need work and will do it on Arches w/c paper... so fingers crossed.. oh, this is the lighthouse in Cape Ann, MA.
After taking photos of barns and hills, from the surrounding areas, I decided to put together a few paintings of country settings.. Since I've not done any painting in a while I found it challenging.. However I went back to the lessons learned from the workshop I took with Joyce Hicks a year ago September.. Her basic principals, light, dark, warm , cool and a lot of other things I confess I can't remember.. but I enjoyed it .
This old barn inspired me. So I tried to turn it into a house. LOL !
I'm an artist painting my way through this journey called life.. Watercolor and pencil are my main mediums and I'm honored to have won awards for my work in both.
The destination is not so important as the daily trek in trying to get there.
