Drawing Fabric

    Elaine took the class lesson on drawing fabric seriously.  After class she went home and drew her son's shirt sleeve.  She needed to recall what she learned in class;  drawing a nice contour line, remembering to use the curves in the line to indicate the ins and outs of the fabric, observe the values and indicating lost and found lines.  Elaine also used the fabric pattern to assist in representing the flow of the material.  Elaine will be able to use this information when drawing rolling hills, a still life setup, animals and much much more!

This Artist is Back and Painting Watercolors!!

I'm challenging myself to improve my scenic watercolors.  It is so vast out there that it can be overwhelming.  I'm sure I'm not the first to be aware of that.  This past summer I've painted works up close, to get started, and further back as I get more confident.
                 "Rocks in Clear Creek"  Golden, CO. 
I'm working with a different palette with more staining colors.

     "South Park Get-Away"


Than's Original Colored Pencil Artwork!

     After a lot of encouragement, Than completed a work of art from his own photograph.  It's wonderful!  On one youth outing with his church, Than took this photo.  He decided to do it in colored pencil.  We talked about composition, color temperature, values, texture and more.  What an accomplishment.  This allowed for further discovery on what subject to do next!  Well done, Than!

More Kids Watercolor Summer 2013


Annabelle (age 12) had moved to applying techniques learned to applying them to a larger painting (8x10").  In this piece, she brushed on washes and glazes, dry brushed, applied warm and cool pine trees and provided cast shadows for the snow drifts and aspen.  Quite an accomplishment, Annabelle!

Kids Watercolor Summer 2013

  Claire (age 13) learned several watercolor techniques.  She applied those techniques to a collage of her own and created a Cupcake Original!!
We had fun!  A job well done, Claire!

Jumping Into Watercolor!

Diana's original watercolor

Drawing, Painting Challenge
Set up a challenge for yourself to accomplish!This not only moves you forward in your ability, but keeps your art interesting!  Where can you get ideas?  Look at other art work in books and magazines.  You can even look in an interior design magazine and see their photos and look for objects you know you can get better at drawing or painting.  I knew I wanted to get better at glass.  I wanted to capture the transparency and the reflectiveness it can have.  I looked around the house and found these marbles that belonged to my father and thought the idea wasn't too overwhelming.  You don't want to locate the hardest thing you can find. Start Simple and then move up!  Good luck and have fun!

In this watercolor piece, Tina added raindrops to add interest.  I think it was very effective, don't you?  Also notice the warm colors move objects closer and cool colors move things back.  Well Done, Tina!!
