Me in a nutshell

My photo
Pretty much every morning I get up at sunrise and take a walk with my dog.I like a big cup of coffee in the morning and a cold beer in the evening.I enjoy building stuff and for sure over my life have made more than my fair share of sawdust.Now I love to paint.It all started in July of 2009 when I took a painting class at the local art co-op.

Family just for fun

                             
                                                               Interactive Acrylic 18"X18"

A quick exercise in brushwork.This art book said" Just squint and  paint shapes with values". No pre drawing just put down shapes as you see them with brush strokes of colour .It was surprising to me when I came up with a likeness of these two from my family in less than an hour.They  just kind of materialised out of all over rapid brush strokes of colour.
 I did this  from a photo my niece emailed me
 A fun exercise I reckon so I plan to try a few more.Helps drawing skills I guess.
