Little Island Park, Palette Knife Painting, Leslie Saeta Workshop Day 2, Virginia Beach, by Texas Artist Nancy Standlee13079

Little Island Park
12x12 on Ampersand Gessobord 

Available on Daily Paintworks

Painted at Little Island Park in Virginia Beach VA during the Leslie Saeta 3 day Palette Knife and Plein Air Workshop. Twelve students are taking the class and 8 of us are staying in the beach house and Leslie has cooked dinner for us the last two nights and tonight we went out for a special treat after a warm but pleasant at the beach. The wind was perfect and we painted to the roar of the ocean all day.

Nancy and her gear, lots of gear.

To see work by other artists who are following along with the 30/30 go to the Leslie Saeta blog. I have joined hundreds of other artists for this September painting challenge and we are trying to paint and post a painting each day. It doesn’t have to be a finished piece but some piece of art each day. On some of the larger commission pieces I have posted portions over a 3 day period. On the smaller pieces I can do one a day. 
I have written an ArtByte about the process of torn paper collage for the Daily Paintworks site and it is ready for viewing HERE. It has 10 pages with more than 50 images. An ArtByte is a small online tutorial that may be free or it's very affordable. Mine will be very affordable at $10.00 and it's loaded with information . And/or I can answer any questions you might have. Send me an email or message me on Facebook. You can also leave a review. There are several very good free ArtBytes that are filled with information. When you get to the Daily Paintworks web page, look under tutorials. Here is my online gallery at Daily Paintworks.

I've decided to open a shop at Etsy as I will be adding some small watercolors soon. The shop has limited paintings right now but I will add more each day.

Original fine art and affordable prints can be found at:
