This new year I am going to introduce a few different concepts on my blog.  The first is “Tips to Being a Better Painter”.  This is the first one.

When I first became serious about painting I would read and study everything I could find about different styles of painting.  I would go to as many galleries and museums as possible to see art.  And then a good friend who is also a painter (and she studied painting in college) said that her professor used to tell her that for every hour you make art you should spend an hour looking or studying art.  I have made that a habit.

Here are some examples of art that I have studied.  These photos are from my trip last year to the Boston Museum of Fine Art.  I took many pictures and pull them up on my computer and look at them over and over.  Many times the things I “study” are not necessarily paintings as I have shown you here.  I love to see other types of creativity.  I especially love the “Calder Cow”!

For instance, the floral arrangement was a special show the garden clubs in the Boston area were doing on this particular day that I was at the MFA.  They did arrangements that interpreted a painting or work of art.  It was interesting to see because obviously they had to look closely at a work to pull out their interpretation.

So to be a better painter don’t just spend more time painting.  Also  spend more time looking and studying art of all types.  You’ll see a difference in your work.

The final day of the final week of Art Camp this summer saw us finishing our Warhol Pop Art paintings.  Half of the group  painted the Warhol Eagle and the other half painted a flamingo in the pop art style of Warhol. 

 We had a fabulous week of painting.  And the favorite part of every art camp week for the kids is the Artist Trading Cards. 

Each young artist paints a small painting, the size of a trading card, and then exchanges them with their fellow artists.  It’s a nice memento of their week with new friends.
