Another thing I struggled with to learn - was to use different paper than I'm used to. This is Canson "Twilight" colored paper. I just need to pile on the lighter pastels because my paintings come out too dark. Again, after the sun moved, I found myself being blinded by reflected light in front of me, blinding me. I realized it a little late. Better late than never.
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!
