Weekly Painting Week 88- Hey Betty! Surfer Girl

Summer is coming! I love how the color of the ocean is changing in the brighter light of Spring- more blue, less grey.  Completed this painting this week on a gesso board in a wood cradle- very stiff to paint on, but very smooth and glossy finish. Hey Betty! 8 x 10″ acrylic on board on cradled wood support.

Weekly Painting Week 83- Surfer in a Wave

My Dad asked me this week, “How do you paint this (a seascape)? Do you draw it first? Do you work from top to bottom?  One of the best teachers I had told us to work out all the details in a small drawing. Then work on a large drawing. Then start all over and by the time you paint so many of the details are illuminated that it just flows into a painting. And the seascape, that’s top to bottom, back to front.

Weekly Painting Week 62- Adobe Illustrator as an assist Outer Banks Beach Painting

I don’t rely heavily on Illustrator or Photoshop, but you can use digital programs to try on some different color before changing your original. Here is the original version of the painting along with one boosted with the saturation effect. Which one is better? I like a lot of high saturation of color, but the softer effect is nice too.
