Thanks Brad, for the info!

ok, been lil bit sick so i havent been hanging in the cold garage too much
it's also been raining and all gloomy like.

BUT, i'll fill y'all in on some small sketches im planning on turning onto canvas
i just need a little practice before i want to attempt some of them:
(poor quality pics)

~some pirates searching for a place to bury their treasure


~a couple of scallywaggs having it out


~a place where time stands still

just a couple of my scribblings, i'll have some paint pictures soon!

There is such joy in painting or working clay. Art is so soothing and fun and great to share. Keep on enjoying yourself and sharing and we will keep watching. Wendy

Heya TD!

Thanks for checking out my artwork and sharing yours! I'm looking forward to your paintings.

The truth is, it's all practice--so break some eggs and make your omelettes!

Take care,

I.

alright, i worked on this one a little bit yesterday after school.
im having a little bit of trouble with the log and the lighting around it, it just wants to blend into the backround a little too much.
i stopped yesterday before i got frustrated



i already lightened up the area around the fire and around the log a little bit, but once i get the actual Hue of the fire dancing around the sand i think that'll help out.
Any advice always welcome!
More soon

right on Duddy!
that background wave is coming together....
lightening the sand around the fire -good foresight!
don't let the log get you down....you'll nail it..
if it becomes a problem,do some sketchbook studies first.....
that's what i always do...
or do a watercolor or ink wash study
to figure out the lighting....
stoked you're stoked on painting!
your enthusiasm and creativity will
make it easier each session!

TD~
Wave looks very nice! Well done!

LLT is right. I sometimes do a small color study. Do it on the computer and you can changes colors easily.
Remember you the teaches of Tim Hildebrandt - warm light source means cool shadows. Go ahead and warm up the
sand closer to the fire area. Oranges and lighter to dark yellows. Save the light shades for the fire. The fire will be the light souse so it's gotta be the brightest thing in the painting.

Looking good!

TD~
Not a bad palm tree. I think you got a very nice palm frond look. I find it palm fronds very tough. They have a hundred little leaves, and if you try to represent them all, you'll go nuts and end up over working the thing, and if you try to only suggest them you sometimes get a non plam looking mush.

However, you got a good palm going there.

It's got the suggestion of fronds, and a nice depth to the bushy tree bit.

Now I hate to make any suggestions, because the tree is coming out so nice. But, if I don't say anything, I'm not really doing my job as a fellow art collective member. So...... remember your camp fire is on the ground below the tree. Is the light hitting the tree correctly?

TD, any and all suggestions I make are only as valuable as you decide they are. It's your painting, and you're the one teaching yourself to paint. (and you're doing well).

Keep going, your doing great!

Thanks, Brad!
palm trees are the funnest and best kind of trees i can create lol

as for the lighting-i'm currently thinking it over, i need to make the leaves near the top darker, but i also need to consider the moonlight.
still working it out, though!
thanks for the help!

Comin along good so far Duds.....
remember..
Moonlight is not as intense as firelight
Moon=a fuzzy glow
fire light is more extreme cause it's closer...
After about 20 paintings
you won't even think about the lighting
it'll just happen!
ROCK-N-ROLLA!

I am loving that palm tree... really.
Night skys are tricky. It's really just black, but that can be uninteresting. So you got the right idea: Mixing in shades of blue or purple to break it up. U gonna do stars? That can be a whole lotta fun!

Good Work TD~
