Wrigley Step 6

I was asked about the process I use in painting one of the ball fields for my Kickstarter Project – Painted Diamonds.  So I tried to take photos while I worked on the painting of the Chicago Cubs Wrigley Field to show you the progress.  Sometimes I get so involved that I forget to take a picture but you get the idea.

Every artist works differently.  I usually start at the top and work in the basic shapes moving toward the subject matter that is closest to the viewer at the end and then go back in to put details.  That’s the great thing about painting.  There is no right or wrong way as long as the end result makes you happy then you did it just right!

Wrigley is the 4th painting in the series of 30 that I am painting for my Kickstarter Project- Painted Diamonds – where I will be painting every Major League Baseball park before the World Series this year.

Fenway Park is 95% Complete

Fenway Park is 95% Complete

Fenway Park is 95% done.  Each of these paintings is so interesting to work on.  I’ve discovered things about them that I never noticed before.  And with Boston I wanted to be sure to add the “B Strong” logo somewhere.

Now I am on to Wrigley.  The Kickstarter Project has 7 more days to get funded and I’m at 89%.  Please take a minute to go to this link and make a pledge to help me reach the goal.  http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/168684256/painted-diamonds-30-ball-parks-in-30-weeks?ref=city

Thank you!

Alex Sharma teaching a workshop

While I was at Hilton Head Island last week I had a chance to ride my bike down to the South Beach area.  I love it there because there is a little pier and The Salty Dog Cafe is there.  And of course,  I love that!  I was delighted to come upon a group of ladies painting in a workshop.  It was led by Alex Sharma who was kind enough to allow me to take some photos.  (You can read more about Alex here.)

Hilton Head is a great place to paint in Plein Air.  The weather is great and the scenery lovely.  Here are some more scenes from Hilton Head:

A gator decided to walk across the bike path.  He was "stopped" by security.
