"Palette knife work can be exhilarating. It looks like you are mastering the technique quite well.  I love this painting.  I cannot offer any constructive techniques though.  I looks great to me."

Mike Price replied to Mike Price's discussion "Nighttime Along The Bosphorus"
"Thanks.  I created a warm glaze of your favorite color, quin gold, along with hansa yellow and it gave me that peachy glow.  Like you, I let the painting "percolate" for a week or so and then I go back to it.  I came to the…"

"Really nice Mike! I love all the beautiful color. Your sky is great! The kitties are a cute addition, too :) I haven't done a lot with night scenes, but I should do more! They are so fun with all the twinkling lights! What I'm noticing is…"

Charles Eisener replied to Mike Price's discussion "Nighttime Along The Bosphorus"
"Sarah is very observant with the light intensity, Mike.  Photographs, whether film or digital, have a much more narrow value range than our eyes can handle.  The result is that darks often have little or no detail, and the brights simply…"

Mike Price replied to Marion's discussion Painting kids on beach...do you pencil figures in first?
"Marion, this should be very cool!  It's a great photo.  Flesh tones are the hardest for me.  Play around with titanium white and yellow oxide and cad red light.  Also, reflections on a wet surf behind him are very effective…"

Mike Price replied to Marion's discussion Top coat....
"Marion, I used matte medium (I think it was Liquitex but it could have been Golden) on a painting several years ago and was disappointed.  It gave the entire painting a milky dull look.  I am happier with Liquitex Gloss Medium and Varnish.…"

Winter Walk

"Very nice Parys.  I like the winter sky.  I especially like how you put different values in the white snow.  Amateurs like me tend to think that snow is white.  Well it is kinda but the grey and blues you put in yours give the…"

"Hi Mike; I really like this painting.  I particularly like the way the sky is dark and cool (more blue) and the water has those warm reddish areas.  I like the lighting on the boat and the way you did the reflection. I look forward to…"

Profile Information

How long have you been painting? Doing any kind of art?
Five Years. I received a cancer diagnosis prior to that and I find that painting is the perfect therapy for me. I have no background in art prior to that. I mostly do landscapes and seascapes.
What other mediums have you used?
Graphite and charcoal sketching.
Are their specific things you would like to learn?
Glazing techniques, water surfaces, composition,light, knife work.
Where did you learn about this website?
I took a tutorial from Karen on a craft site and I liked her style and teaching method. It was a tutorial where her neighborhood was the painting subject. I liked the thought processes that went into her painting. I have since watched YT videos of Karen and then I discovered this site. To me, she is to acrylics what Bob Ross was to oils.

Thank you for the friend request Mike. Also, thank you for your kind words. I picked up my brushes in March of 2013 to begin studying and learning. Now I have begun my 3rd year. Too much fun! How about you? This is not your 1st rodeo judging from the quality of your work!?! Grins,
Lynda
