As I mentioned in yesterday’s post, I was at the Oregon Coast this last week,
So, of course, I had to paint something from the Oregon Coast. It wasn’t all plein air though. There’s was lots of rain, so I didn’t get very good photos. Most of my painting was done in the evening, so I used a combination of the photos I’d taken, along with one I found at the Morguefile, for my inspiration. I tried to get that feeling of rain.
As with yesterday’s painting of Mt. Hood, I used my Yarka St Petersburg pan paints, both original and sequel set. This time I used Arches Bright White paper, though.
I was at the Oregon Coast this week. So why the painting of Mt Hood?
Well, the subject for the watercolor class I missed was Mt. Hood. The class used Masa Paper, which I didn’t have. I’ll probably make it up in the next class, but just to keep in tune, I decided to do this painting.
There’s lots I like about it, and lots I don’t, so I may try doing this one over.
I used my Yarka St. Petersburg pan watercolors–both the original and sequel sets. Except for the sky. I used Winsor & Newton Raw Sienna for the glow. The paper was Twinrocker Rough.
I have a project up at the Amazing Mold Putty blog today.
What happens when you mix wine foil caps, Amazing Casting Products and a Gelli Arts plate? A whole lotta fun and pretty stuff!
I actually did this quite a while back, intending to do a review, which I never did. Sometimes, I just plan more than I can get to.
It was done in a Schutzen journal that I won, but I didn’t write down what pen I used. It looks like a brush pen, probably a Pentel.
I couldn’t get this to scan properly but I thought I’d share it anyway.
The Journal52 prompt was ‘Just Write’. There has been a lot of serendipity or synchronicity or something with these journal prompts and my life lately and I decided to write about that.
The first time it happened was after I posted a painting I did for the prompt 5: Television. I painted a character from my favorite TV show. Someone commented on the painting, saying that I should paint him looking into a window. The very next prompt, No. 6 was ‘Window’.
Prompt 10 was ‘Coloring book Inspiration’. I had no coloring books, but the very day that was announced, I received a coloring book in the mail from Exaclair (which I’ll be reviewing and giving away in June).
Then last week in my watercolor class, the teacher asked us all to do some writing in our sketchbook journals. On Friday, prompt 11 came out–‘Just Write’.
Now is the universe trying to tell me something, using Journal52 prompts? I don’t know but it sure keeps me eager to see what the next prompt is. I keep hoping it will be ‘Millionaire’!
For this page, I used a Sakura Moonglow Flourescent Pink gel pen to write over a background created with a GelliArts monoprinting plate.
