October Paint PartyWe had the October 1st Saturday Paint Party yesterday and what a good time we had!  Everyone did a fabulous job on their floral painting.  While we used the same techniques they all turned out so different.  I love it!  Super work everyone.  The November 1st Saturday Paint Party will be November 2 from 4-6:30 at the Blue Ridge Arts Council.  We will be painting a landscape.  Consider joining us to create your own “masterpiece”.

CAM03252-1Yesterday Ethan painted this lovely Iris in class.  He did a great job and told me he learned a lot about how to use the brush to make the lines work for the flower.  Great job!  If you have a potential young artist, ages 7 – 12, who would like to learn to paint contact kwalker@doubledogdesigns.com to register.

We had a fun lesson yesterday with my young artist.  We transformed an old canvas that had been painted as an abstract and turned it into a fun post-impressionist painting in the style of Matisse.  Take a look at the before and after.  What do you think?

Yesterday I had the most wonderful morning painting “en plein air” at Oxbow Farm.  There is the most beautiful field of sunflowers there that just needed to be painted.  I tried to take step by step photos to share today of one of the paintings that I did.  When I work outside I can usually get a painting about 85-90% finished and then after a day or two of letting the paint “rest” I will complete it in the studio.

I call this “Oxbow Sunflowers 1“.  It is an oil on canvas measuring 9″x12″ and is available framed for $275.

Being outside and painting sunflowers was such a treat after painting all the ball parks I have been doing the last few months.  It was a nice break.
