Ha!  Remember what I said about tweaking?  Well, this needed some more reflected light on the trunk of the tree where it melded with the shrubs behind it on the right side.  Lost and found edges are one thing, visual confusion is quite another!  I also added the hint of the queen Anne's lace in the…

Lynda, I haven't been painting that long either.  I started in 2011 as a way to deal with my cancer diagnosis of lymphoma (which I am happy to report is stable at the moment).  I had never picked up a paint brush before then.  Acrylics and graphite/charcoal drawing are the only two mediums in which I work.  I find creating "art" is very satisfying and relaxing.  Each canvas is like a journey, isn't it.  First the planning.  Then the actual trip.  And finally, the destination.  All parts equally satisfying.  I love looking back on my early stuff and seeing where I have improved.  Thank you for accepting my friend request and I will continue to admire your work on Karen's site.

Hi Lynda...here's my reply to you about what paper I use for my cards:

For the bell painting I used a watercolour card made by Strathmore....the funny thing is that I have no idea what weight they are, as I have two boxes of 20 cards/envelope each from back in the mid 90's that I never used and they're still perfect and work really well.

All my cards stock is made by Strathmore. Have a large box that I bought in the spring (50 cards/envelopes) that are mixed media cards, so I am able to do acrylic on them, sketches and/or watercolour and lastly I have a box of 10 cards/envelopes by Strathmore that are watercolour photo frame cards (but I do not insert photos, I insert watercolours done on my Canson Montval watercolour block 4" x 6"....perfect for painting on and inserting in these cards. Hope this was helpful!

Cheers, W.

Lynda,  Thank you for commenting on my painting of the daisies.

Lynda, the whole thing was hard for me...since I am not a watercolourist. I think my saving grace was the fact that I used a watercolour paper block (so did not have to soak and stretch the paper before painting).

It was hard to lay in the sky so that it was soft, but once I had that I let it dry for  a few hours. Then I did the distant hills and after they dried I put in the background fields & small trees, and foreground field and foreground side bushes. All of this had to be done quickly. After it dried the distant hills were too dark, so I dampened them a bit and lifted out some of the colour with a wedge of paper towel and dry brush...panic moment ha ha ha, but it worked.

Lastly I painted in the big dark trees (for me that was probably the easiest part of the whole painting, as I was using a combination of a damp and dry brush). It's the wet in wet part that is the hardest for me to do...guess I am too controlling when I paint and with wet  in wet you need to let the paint do it's thing. :)

The very final part was doing the shadows of the trees on the foreground field..phew, then I let it all dry and when I looked at it a couple of hours later, was pleasantly surprised at the outcome.

Just tired to do another on my own...total disaster...need to do a few more lessons before I venture off by myself.

Well time to get back to the acrylic landscape course that has been shelved for awhile.

I do have an acrylic painting partly done, just some tweaks to do to fix the composition, and the big tree and bushes and then the highlights. It is actually from a lesson by James Willis (Oil painter), but of course I need to make things harder for myself and am doing it in acrylic LOL!!! 

It's on a 16 x 20 canvas here's where I am at the moment:

If you are able to click on the image you will be able to see more of the detail. I am really happy with the right hand side plants (which need more shaping into the red dirt part) Anyway a lot more to do before this baby gets posted.

So what are you up to these days...still building and cleaning out the garage, or is that all done and you are now at your easel????

Cheers, Wanda

Thank you so much Linda for your very very  nice comments on all my latest pieces. You can stop dancing up and down now...would not want you to accidentally kick a table or something LOL! Sorry I've not communicated via email for quite awhile, just had a lot going on and dealing with my Mom...long story but all is well now. Have also been working on my acrylic landscape course - took a couple of weeks off from it and just wanted to do sketches. If I get a moment next week will send you a wordy email, if you're up to it, if not just let me know and I'll zip up my mouth lol! Cheers, Wanda

Lynda, while I'm here, thought I'd let you know that I started my acrylic painting from the pencils sketch that I sent you...but it was really going south, so I did a really loose ink and wash sketch today (since I was already working in ink after doing the orchid).  Here's my loose ink/wash sketch. Will try again with the acrylics tomorrow. Cheers, Wanda

At 7:48pm on July 13, 2015, Wanda McDonald said…

Sheesh, just realized I left you this message on a thank you reply to my orchid sketch, then thought...yikes...she'll never see it, so I've pasted it here:

P.S. Lynda, got your email, just have not found the time to do a nice big one back...but will over the next few days...Yup, your painting is looking awesome...hang in there girl!

Thanks so much Lynda for your great comments on my version of LSC, the light on the trees especially in the mid ground in the photo is what really appealed to me as well as the bluebells of course, so pleased you liked my little painting, and thank you so much for the A's ! Lol

Hi Lynda.  Thanks for the comments.  I'm new to painting and this page so it 'll take me time to sort things out and 'm a bit short on time.  I'm not sure how to "add" anything or contribute.  Patience. Your paintings are wonderful.
