"Hi Mike! Lovely! You have really pushed the color in this one. It gives it a very lighthearted feel. Nice! As far as the reflections. You want to keep the strokes looser than the element they are reflecting. I find the best way is to use vertical…"

"Great painting Mike. I love the light and shadows. Just enough detail in the brush that my eyes can fill in the rest. There is way more depth to your painting than I see in the reference photo. Nice."

"Sarah and Karen, Thank you for the tips.  This "do-over" incorporates most of your advice.  I added more "bulk" to the shadows and defined them better.  I added foreground flowers in different reds and blues.…"

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
