My Arts Castle students





Today was our last day of class. It was a success and sorry to see it end. I am so impressed with their talent.  They worked hard on "limited strokes" exercise.  Look at that awesome bird and gorgeous rose!

Senior beach walker -gouache

I had a hard time getting the flesh colors today.  There were so many subtle changes and when I mixed the colors differently, they just didn't read correctly. Too blah... I made the background more saturated in color but it didn't help much. I'll keep on. Only the fourth day with this new medium.

New medium for me - gouache






This is a new medium for me. I feel like a total beginner.  I started out with a mixed media sketch tablet and was not happy with the results.  I moved to a toned sketch book and liked how the colors really popped. I'll stick with that one for a while.  I also tried painting on my marker paper and liked it but the paper is so thin. I am dating my sketches and hoping for some quick improvement. 😊

Limited strokes exercise


I love how this turned out. If you follow the values, you get the results.  Getting my brain out of the way....
This post and many following posts are exercises I have done after viewing Peggi Kroll Roberts DVDs. This is in preparation for my teaching this summer.
