On a visit to my sister's this last weekend I saw a painting I had done years ago. I had given it to my mother and when she passed away, my sister ended up with it. One of my acrylics that I had forgotten all about.
More paint splashed on my watercolor attempt. Not even close to what I had in mind, but I don't hate it yet. I had planned on doing a very loose technique, but I always seem to tighten up and restrict the flow!
I found another fun site in my Internet travels. I came across it because it has good explanations of the the various etching techniques. The site belongs to Rick Lyttle and it also contains a number of his prints. He lives in Northern California and creates Landscape, Still Life and Whimsical prints that are great.
Here we go again. I started a watercolor painting as another learning/practice session. I'm using a photo of my son and grandson and right now, it actually looks a little like them. Just the base wash so it will be interesting to see where it goes from here.
I studied art many, many years ago, then drifted away from it pursuing a living. Ten years ago, through a love for photography, I revisited my art and creative side.
In this new adventure, I discovered printmaking. Linocuts and woodblock work hold so many surprises for me.
