Clouds Rolling in w close ups

finally finished

There are so many great views at Pleasure House Point. I might try to do another one this winter. Hopefully it will go easier than this one did.

They get some beautiful photos over there!

I wanted to give the look of wind on the water breaking up the reflections.

This was the hardest part. Whew! Glad that’s over.

Next painting might be easier. That little man, I had to try 3 times before I got this.

Here’s a little focal point in the background.

That’s not too much wasted paint considering that there’s probably a half cup of it or more on the painting. I put plastic wrap on my leftovers and might be able to use them next week.

These are the palette knives I used in this painting on my palette with left over globs of paint.

The large one on the left was good for scraping the first blue on the sky. The second from the left is the one I use most of the time. It’s great for mixing paint colors and I often use it to scoop up a glob of paint to transfer it to the canvas. The second from the right is the one I used to paint most of this and the one on the right was recommended to me by my blogging friend, Alli. Check her out! Her paintings are beautiful and peaceful!

It was a stroke of luck that Alli told me to buy another knife because I was having a problem painting the figure, then when I went to the art supply store I noticed my painting that was in their window was missing and the manager found it and I took it home. But it almost got stolen. If I didn’t go to the store that day, by this week that painting would be gone. Just my intuition. But intuition is one of the benefits of leading the life of a hermit. Eventually you get some. And you can’t ignore it.

  1. Everything works quite well in this painting! BTW you can cover your leftover palette and stick it in the freezer (if you have room that is!) and it will keep practically forever. Works best with a relatively airtight container. I use a plastic Masterson palette storage box. The box works well on its own but even longer in the freezer. Only takes a few minutes to thaw and you’re ready to go.
