Letter “L” is for loose landscapes at the lake!
As a warm-up exercise for my online class, Y is for Yellow with Carla Sonheim; I did some quick sketches on leftover watercolor paper scraps with a gray and black Neocolor crayon:
I painted several pieces of watercolor paper with house paint samples that I had leftover from Lynn Whipple’s Big Bold Flower Painting class. Once dry, I used Dick Blick’s Economy “Blickrylic” acrylic paints to paint landscapes based loosely on my sketches:
It was lots of fun! 🙂 This assignment inspired me to paint landscapes in colors I would not normally use such as these colors:
As you can see, I have them ready to put in my old “ledger” that I showed you in my post yesterday.
Now, I want to try large and loose landscapes on canvas!
I encourage you try painting loosely and boldly today! It may give you a new perspective on life!
Happy Painting! 🙂
