Still Painting

Since my last post, Debra of  Penny The Duck and I agreed to both get back to painting after some time away from it. No deadlines or assignments, just spend some time painting each day whenever possible. There’s nothing I like to paint more than sky and water, but I struggled with this one (8”x10” acrylic on canvas board). It’s my first time using a canvas board instead of a stretched canvas, but I didn’t like it very much. So it’s back to stretched canvas for the next one.

I can almost feel the waves splashing against the rocks along the beach. Beautiful, even if you didn't care for the substrate.

I have the same feeling about canvas boards - I just don't like them. I prefer a stretched canvas, wood, or watercolor paper.

Well-you say you struggled with it but I don't see that. I see beautifully shaded rocks, lovely colors and sky. I think it's amazing you do this while not looking at a photo or real life! I'm happy we can cheer each other on!

To achieve a full painting like that in one day is marvellous.
Its beautiful and dramatic, I love how the water is reflecting the feel of that moody sky!

It's lovely. I particularly noticed the 3-d effect you achieved painting the rocks. LOVE you new background too. Very contemporary.

I just love it, glad you are back to painting and doing something you love and are good at.

I think painting is your calling Barbara-you are really good at it-not that you aren't really good with other art forms-but I can see painting could be your passion-hugs
