Color Cards

I decided to do the color cards as I never have been familiar with all the variations of color one can obtain. I am used to just smearing it on the board and adding to until I think it is right. I…Continue

"I love this painting! I'm not a person who people would think that I look with favor on an abstract but I love all of yours I have seen. I would like to try one as it seems very freeing and cleansing of the mind."

"I really see what you mean about that shadow and highlight being v shaped. It does indicate where the light is coming from. Glad to know that."

"Hi Barbara! Wow you chose a challenging one didn't you! Very interesting. I'm going to make some comments based on the way I paint - always looking for touches of realism. Because that's what I know! But please remember that your…"

"Beautiful work Barbara!  Glad to see you painting again. I really like this quiet scene. You've done a wonderful job of the transparency of the curtains. Great composition!  Love those lost edges and the hard edges as well. Great work!"

"Thanks for all your comments. You all have helped me much in my journey. I am thinking that this will be the first painting I try to sell. It's a 9x12. I don't have a clue what to ask for it but have one offer to buy. "

"hi Barbara. I agree with the comments so far, particularly how well the curtains are painted. i also think your vase is really well "grounded" and looks realistic. Great composition too."

"Great job Barbara! What I especially like is that you let your painting be a painting...more fully expressive than a photo....if we were trying to do photos, we would use a camera...right!!?? Very nice work indeed!"

Eva Leitner replied to Barbara Hewitt's discussion Window with Flowers
"Here I am! You did a great job I think. I like the gauzy curtains! They look so real! I miss the leaves outside the window on the right side - for me they give the composition a special touch - but this is only my opinion my personal feeling.Another…"

"I believe I will have a piece of that please. Ha. It is really good. You did a good job. I can almost feel the texture of the orange. I also like your shadows but (well here goes, my first critique) I think the feet of the bowl need to be grounded…"

More about me and my painting

I used to paint a lot about 40 years ago and just recently picked it up again. I had been using oils and decided to try acrylics. I really like this medium. There is a lot to say for both. I am very much an amateur and have a lot to learn. I am trying hard to improve in any way I can. I have been looking at videos and reading everything I can find and it was hard to "get my feet wet again." It was scary, sort of. I am afraid to add each element to my paintings because of not being able to do it right. I will get over that! You bet!! I just keep on trying. I may post  a painting or two when I feel more at home here. Thanks for the welcome, Karen. You are a fantastic painter!
