Wednesday’s Young Artist created these beautiful paintings of lemons this past week.  Didn’t they do a great job?

Young artists, ages 7-12, paint with me each week on Wednesday or Thursday, from 4:15-5:15.  We create something new each week as they learn about color mixing, composition, the use of painting equipment and much more.  If you have a young artist that you would like to paint with  us just contact me at kwalker@doubledogdesigns.com to register them for class.


I also have young artists who are a little too old for the Young Artists classes so they join us for adult classes on Wednesday or Thursday from 5:30-7.  These classes allow students to develop their skills while working on a subject of their choice while receiving individual instruction.  This is Liam, a new student who had excellent drawing skills, working on his fantasy drawing.

This is an underpainting of acrylic in black and white where we allowed the underpainting to dry totally and then put glazes of oil paint on top.  This technique is a great way for students to learn to see light and shadow.  We will be painting this lemon soon in our Thursday evening adult class.  Lemon, oil on canvas, 5″x7″, available for $75.  Contact kwalker@lifeofadailypainter.com .

Lemon underpaintingLast Wednesday night at Art Class we worked on an acrylic underpainting of a lemon.  Instead of oil paint we used acrylic paint and only using black and white we painted the shading that we saw of the lemon.





Lemon glazed painting

Last night at Art Class, with the underpainting of dry from last week, we glazed over the acrylic paint with an oil paint and a blending medium to add color to our lemon.  This is a technique that many painters use to get shading into their works.  It sometimes makes it easier for students to see the subtle differences in shades and tones.

The Lemon measures 5″x7″ on canvas panel and is available for $45 by contacting me at kwalker@doubledogdesigns.com .


KellyWalker SmallThe final 3rd Thursday Art Walk of the season is tonight from 5 – 8 p.m. in downtown Front Royal.  Be sure to come out and enjoy some refreshments and see the artist demonstrating.  Delilah’s will have a tent sale as well as demonstrations.  And I believe there will be pumpkin carving demonstrations at the Blue Ridge Arts Council.  Just in time for the season!  Come join us.  We’ll look forward to seeing you.

(That’s me painting during a 3rd Thursday Art Walk.  I was working on an abstract and I think I may have been channeling Jackson Pollack at the time!  🙂  )
