When this painting is done I will call it "Koi Swirl"
This painting is almost done. I'm taking a break. It is snowing outside and my feet are cold! Maybe I'll light a fire in the fireplace!
I've been working on this mixed media painting for a week now. Some folks at Wet Canvas in the Colored Pencil Forum really liked my previous Koi Pond painting and wanted me to do a WIP (work in progress) post to describe my process. I just finished posting about 10 pictures of this painting in progress there. If you would like to see it, go to http://www.wetcanvas.com/ . You don't have to join to visit and look. Go to the list of forums and look for Colored Pencils. Then, click on Colored Pencils again in the short list on the left. My entry is called "WIP of another Koi Pond" (or something like that).
Welcome to my art blog! This is where I share my explorations and learning experiences in pastel, watercolor and oil painting. I have had this blog for about six or more years. I am currently entering many national and regional juried art shows. I have a website and sell my work from there as well. I started a group called Reno Tahoe Plein Air Painters a year ago and it has grown to about 40 active painters! Each year brings new challenges and exciting opportunities. I have made many friends among other art bloggers and enjoy visiting their blogs. I hope you enjoy your visit here, and click on the links to my website and the plein air painters to see more!
