Welcome! This blog began as an assignment in a digital art class. That was in 2008. I decided to keep it going as my art journal. It is fascinating for me to see how a painting develops, so this is where I post my painting progressions and exciting new things I find on creative blogs and websites. I hope you will learn along with me about painting, drawing and all kinds of art.
I am posting two scanned sketches to see how they look. I did the birch tree sketch in Wisconsin, while visiting Matt. This was an assignment "Trees" for my UAS Field Sketching and Nature Drawing class taught by Kathy Hocker. Sketch was done with graphite and pastel pencil. This class is really fun and i am learning so much. Experimenting with watercolor and pen! The Thimbleberry sketch is just that! My first watercolor.
