"Charley Looking For Ali"

Acrylic on 20X24' stretched canvas.  This is my painting of "Charley The Toy Poodle" This is a commission (my first) of this lovable little pooch.  It's a departure from my regular landscapes and seascapes as I venture into new territory for me...animal portraits. My palette: Liquitex Heavy Body Cerulean Blue, Raw Umber, Brown Umber, Burnt Sienna, Ecru, Mars Black, and of course, Titanium White.  And Glaze.…See More

"These abstract works are very colorful and stimulating to the eye.  I don't know enough about this style to make any critiques, I just know they are visually appealing.  I can see your passion in your brushstrokes.  If you search…"

Mike Price replied to Madeleine Shulman's discussion Early Snow
"I like the "plein-air" looseness of your painting.  The shadows and light are very well done in my opinion and the brushwork is excellent.  The obscureness of the background trees bring even more focus on your subject.  I am…"

Acrylic-and-Pastel

"Wanda, I love this!  The softness you created with bleeding and blending the colors makes me want to consider pastel.  The texture that you created with the gel medium really contributes to the painting.  The stucco actually looks…"

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
