This blog serves as a space where I can share the process of my painting journey.........

I am going through a file of pictures that I have been wanting to paint and now I am gaining confidence that I can do them justice. I have finally had someone teach me how to layout a painting in incremental steps that make huge sense. I love it!! One of the things that I have found out is to spread a very thin coat of linseed oil on the canvas or board or for that matter paper in the beginning. This allows the paint to move easily on the surface. I am also learning more about grays and how to bend the color as Lori Putnam explains in her DVD. The information in both of these courses together provide great clarity.
