Still learning, day 25, 30 day challenge

I am still learning....
A.  How the different nibs work, what kind on line they make, and
how much ink they hold.
B. Which ink lines I should put in first and which
I should do at the very last.
C. To be patient and let one layer dry before applying
the pattern.

What I would do differently.

I would put blue artist tape on the paper so the un-matted image wouldn't look so messy.

It speaks to me, acrylic and ink on paper, 8 x 6"

I am having a give-away!

Here is how it works.  Leave a comment on my post and you will be entered to win.  I am going to give away one painting a week for the duration of the 30 Day Challenge, (the month of September, 2013). If you comment daily on my posts then you can be entered up to 7 times to win.  The winner will have their choice of any unsold painting of the week. 

Those of you who subscribe by e-mail to this blog can either reply to the e-mail, or comment and you will be entered.

Please note this drawing is going to be casual.  I am not hiring any fancy auditing company to do the selection.  It is going to be a plain old pieces of paper in a bowl thing.

If you are the winner your painting will be shipped to you after it has dried, which can take one to two weeks with oils

  1. Love them full of energy. I always use masking tape and butt it up to the edges of the just keeps everything clean and makes the art pop right out when you take it you can be as messy as you like over the tape without any worries.
