original impressionist acrylic landscape painting
Here is an example of a painting that I painted with a 1 1/2 stiff Bristle Fan Brush.
Since we were talking about Skyscapes. here is one of mine
If you focus on the lights and the darks, I promise, you will improve your paintings. If one plane is light, the next plane has to be darker and visa versa. If the plane or object is a middle value, you can go either way. Make it a lot lighter or a lot darker. You choose!
A lot of art teachers give the exact colors you should use, I.E., that color is 2 parts Sap Green and 3 parts indecision. I'm telling you that the color isn't as important as the value. If you concentrate on the value instead of the color you will be much happier with the outcome.

My Web site, a new painting each day.
This is my first Post. A bad tme to start a blog, as my show season is starting to come around and it can get very chaotic, but here goes.
Twenty years ago when I was young at art, I showed a friend some of my new paintings. His response was,they are really nice, but why would I want them. If there isn’t something different about your work why will someone pick your work over someone elses. If you don’t even know what that means, then you won’t know how to get there. It took me a while to figure it out. I think about this as I paint every single painting. You should too!
