I've been trying to get out and paint outside as often as I can. So far that has been four times this year. Here's what I've come back with so far (minus the one that fell in the dirt which wasn't good anyway):
*While painting the mountain scene at the top, one hiker passed by and seeing us painting said, "Now that's an affliction that I don't understand." "But at least you understand that it's an affliction" I said.
Great work Dave. I learned this trick from another painter friend: the painting that fell in the dirt if you let it dry, the dirt should just wipe off it. I have dropped a painting at the beach and it worked.ReplyDelete
Dave! Ahh these are so gorgeous! It's always great to see your work! Hope you are doing well!ReplyDelete
Thanks Marty and Suzie. Marty, I did try that trick and a lot of it did wipe off, but the finer powdery dirt seemed to soak in and isn't coming off. No big deal. I didn't like that one anyway.ReplyDelete
Dave, I thought you were calling it "mixed media"! Too bad the dirt wasn't only in the foreground! That would've been more natural. Oh well! I love the one with the cattails and the river. So pretty...and our neck of the woods! Great job posting and keeping the blog alive! : )ReplyDelete
I wish I had your affliction. :DReplyDelete
It was neat to meet you today. I'm sorry we didn't get to talk more! But I definitely felt the awesome vibes. Looking forward!
