Hi! I played with my metallic paints again today. I feel fairly confident that I could paint a lovely picture with them soon! Also, I miss Halloweentime.
Hi! Since everyone around me is celebrating easter this weekend, I thought I would paint something from my favorite Easter movie, The Nightmare Before Christmas. You may not consider this an Easter movie, but the Easter Bunny is in it, so I feel like it is. Also, it’s my favorite movie so I’ll find anContinue reading “Day 52: My Favorite Easter Movie, Part 1”
Hi! Today I painted a real picture, as opposed to the garbage I’ve posted the past couple days. I’m happy to report that although I misplaced my talent for a bit I have now located it. Crisis averted. I’m not a church-goer, but I wanted to try my hand at some architecture, so a simpleContinue reading “Day 49: Church”
Hi. I am pretty emotionally distressed right now, and the only thing I could get to come out of the creative part of my brain were what my son called “Blue Squigglies”. I’ll try to finish my tentacle painting tomorrow. Send positive vibes my way.
Hi! I spent hours trying to paint today. I had a reference photo with a beautiful blue and orange sky and a lake and castle. I always paint from the farthest part of the scene to the closest, and I could not get past this sky. No matter what I did, the blue and orangeContinue reading “Day 42: Stardew Valley”
Hi! I painted my first rose today. It was pretty fun, and I would have kept messing with it if I hadn’t broken my newly established “workday rule” (only painting for an hour on days that I work) and forgot to eat dinner. After an hour and a half I accepted the fact that thisContinue reading “Day 24: A Rose in the Rain”
Hi! Remember the fancy paint set I hated because it was chunky and dried really fast? (If you don’t, check past posts!) I found the perfect purpose for it! I have never done a palette knife painting before, but from what I’ve seen, you want thick paint that dries fast. I happened to have justContinue reading “Day 21: Rainbow Forest”
Hi! You probably guessed from the title, but today I painted things that are recognizable as water droplets! If you look at them from far away and kind of unfocus your eyes they look super realistic. I used an old canvas that had a failed painting on it as a background. (When I hate myContinue reading “Day 19: Water Droplets!”
Hi! I don’t know if you’ve noticed yet, but I am not great at realism. It’s something I need to work on if I want to paint realistic paintings, so with my limited time tonight I gave it a try. A water droplet seemed like the easiest thing to start with. How hard could itContinue reading “Day 18: Not a Water Droplet”
Hi! This evening my dad stopped by and reminded me that he sent me a bunch of pictures he wanted me to paint a while ago and I haven’t painted any of them (oops). So today I painted from this photo as a reference. I have recently started practicing adding more detail to things inContinue reading “Day 16: Misty Mountains”
