The fun is in the details....

I wish I had taken more step by step photos of this little still life. I'm posting it to show how by adding just a few details to the dish, it can really make a difference. What would be considered a pretty complicated bowl to paint/draw is simplified by just leaving it white and getting the shape on the canvas. I then go in with the shadows and highlights to give it dimension. Don't let complicated subjects intimidate you!! Start them out with basic shapes and go from there.

On another note, first class of the 2012 for my Kentucky students is this weekend! I'm so excited to paint with everyone again and can't wait to see you in person!! Happy painting!

Hello Kentucky!!!

Well, I had forgotten how much paperwork it can take to run a business! I'm officially "unburied" and looking forward to the first class here in Florence Kentucky! I'm taking sign ups now for April and the other upcoming classes for 2012. Can't wait to paint here in my Ole Kentucky Home! Happy Painting everyone!
