Re: BETTY BETTY

Technically, it's very good. Colored pencils? I've seen some amazing work done in that medium. Some artists can finish a piece that looks almost photographic. For me, though, the upside down idea is disconcerting. Maybe close ups of her face and parts of the car, instead. But I find that it bothers ...

Re: Another landscape becomes a wildlife painting

Oh Carl! Hell no! I don't want to either. I was only kidding. I was part of a writer's group a few years ago and we had a blog site. We all had an assigned day of the week to write a post in the blog. I would write mine with a cartoon that went along with it. Just having to think of something once a...

Re: Another landscape becomes a wildlife painting

Carl. Good evening. Maybe you and I should go ahead and start our own website! Then again, we seem to have taken over this one. Yes, I probably should build up the paint a bit on the moose so he looks as though he belongs there. The painting was done completely with a pallet knife and he was brushed...

Another landscape becomes a wildlife painting

I placed bears into my last one. This work seemed to call for a moose. I tried to show a higher resolution picture taken with my wife's camera but I think it was just too many pixels. The site wouldn't upload it. This was done with a pallet knife and the texture showed really well. So, here's the ve...

Re: Still-life oil painting & video montage

Sparta, you are a fine painter. You not only capture look but the feel of the fruit and porcelain. And even the water. That is something difficult to do and you carry it off really well. I admire you're skill.

Re: Pallet Knife Painting...Would Like Some Opinions

Reupholstering two chairs? I'm sure You'd rather be painting. I hate when life interferes with what we want to be doing. My wife had me visiting all of the Goodwill stores with her, today. On Mondays they give senior citizens discounts. I'm 65!! (Can't believe it, frankly). She says at least I'm goo...

Re: Pallet Knife Painting...Would Like Some Opinions

Carl, as ever I look forward to your comments and observations. I'm going to practice that technique. Thanks for that. As usual. And yes! I used one of Tibor Nagy's painting as my inspiration while trying not to copy the original work. I'm glad you went to check out his work. Fantastic, isn't it? Th...

Re: Pallet Knife Painting...Would Like Some Opinions

Hi Carl. I'm not sure what you mean. That I need to learn how to do tree trunks?
But the trees, though, were what was bothering me. I realized that too many were leaning over!? Was this forest falling down?
I've since fixed it. Taken out some leaning trees and replaced them with straighter ones.

Re: Too Blue?

Megan, thanks for the comments. I appreciate it. The more I looked at this, though, the more I hated it. I've already painted over it! I've been enjoying painting in a freer style with broad strokes and trying to get away from that tight painting style. I have a new painting I've just finished using...

I posted this up in "Just Showing" but I thought I'd put it here, also. One thing bothers me about this and I want to see if anyone else sees the same thing. Thanks for looking.

Newest Pallet Knife Painting

https://s21.postimg.org/kdrhxvzl3/104_4149.jpg I find that the pallet knife keeps me from getting too tight with my painting. With a brush I will often put too much detail into a picture and eventually I kill it. Several of my paintings have been painted over works that I have ruined because of thi...

Re: What's important when painting?

A passion for it. If the passion is there it flows from your fingers, down the brush or pallet knife and finally onto the painting surface. The lack of it can be sensed more than seen. Look at landscape from, lets say...that guy Ross who used to give painting lessons on T.V. The work makes you feel ...

Let me know what you all think. I'd like to put this up on Etsy and Fine Art America to see if I can interest any buyers. Thanks for looking.

Re: Cleaned Up Elk Painting

Thanks, Ice. Actually, it is clear. It's just that the picture of it is awful. I took a quick shot with my camera. I know that if I intend to put some of my work on Etsy or Fine Arts America to sell them, I'm going to have to take better pictures of my work than this.

Re: how to attach a image of my work?

Ryan, you need to go over to an image posting site. I use POSTIMAGE. It's free. You upload the image to the site and then copy the URL. Then paste what you've copied here. Press preview before you're finished to make sure you've done it correctly. You'll probably mess up a couple of times before you...

Re: Modern artists use a hybrid technique

Derex seems to like to stop in in to make random tutorial posts or write something about art history. Whatever seems to be on his mind at the moment. Nothing wrong with that, of course. Don't think that there really is any meaning other than that. Although, why he posted it in "Be Gentle" ...

Re: Newest Wildlife Painting

Oh no. I didn't mean that I painted this in a day. I'm simply painting every day. This took about four days from start to finish. And I did more pre paint drawing on this one than I usually do. I wanted to get the composition right. And no, not acrylics. Oils. Looks like acrylics? Is that a good or ...

Re: Grand Canyon VI

Maybe laying down some paint only where the most definitive values are will help you figure it out. It might help to weigh the scene. Or making your dark part of the drawing even darker so you can more easily see where you're at. And I've finished yet another one. I've been a painting fiend. Trying ...
