PAINTING:

THIS IS ONE OF MY FAVORITES.  THE WIND IS BLOWING AND PAINTING THE PALM TREES TO SHOW THAT WAS FUN.  USUALLY I THINK MY CLOUDS STINK, BUT I ACTUALLY LIKE THEM IN THIS ONE.  THE WAVES LOOK A LITTLE MORE REALISTIC TOO.  THE DOWNWARD BRUSHSTROKE WITH THE FAN BRUS...

PAINTING:  I love the colors in this painting.  Although, I am not sure I captured the reflection technique completely in my painting, I still love the effect.  That is one of the things that led me to do this one.  Another really cool thing about this one is that a lo...

 PAINTING:  

      I AM BACK WITH BOB!  THIS IS MINE, BUT ONE OF HIS.  LET ME THINK.....DID I LEARN ANY NEW STUFF ON THIS ONE?  YES...YES I DID.  THE WATER TECHNIQUE THAT MAKES IT LOOK LIKE LIGHT SHINING ON IT.  I USED A DEEPER BLUE ON THE FAR ENDS OF THE CANV...

 PAINTING:

PAINTING:  

At the end of the  1st version of this painting, I realized a couple of different things.  The last two paintings have been horrible.  I had switched to this new water and oil paint mixture.  The quality of the paint was good, but it did not play well w...

Painting:  

Yuck.  What is going on?  All of a sudden, I can't paint.  Bob is getting on my nerves and so is this paint.  This ii what I was thinking while doing this second  and even worse disaster than the last.  Mr. Ross' brushes were swishing one way and mine w...
