Art Journal

This week I have been preparing for my class that starts today. I really do love teaching. It is so rewarding for me to see my students work evolve. I’ve also been making some headway with my paintings and redesigning my website. I hope to have my website redesigned by the end of September. 

So, last week I posted some line drawings I did of Canadian Geese. This week I did about 10 color study water color paintings from those line drawings.  I really wanted to get sense of the color palette I will using for each painting. Although, there will be some compositional adjustments as well as color adjustments these color studies really give a sence of what this series is all about.

This slide show is of my finished 4″x6″ small work as well as some of the above referenced color studies.  This is the first time I have painted on canvas so small. It was such a personal challenge for me to translate my painting style to this size.  I think by Saturday I will finish the rest of them which were even smaller about (4)- 4″x5″ paintings. I feel really satisfied with the end result!
