Friday Poppies, Oil Floral, Hedi Moran Workshop Day 5, Scottsdale, AZ and Watercolor Study by Texas Artist Nancy Standlee

Friday Poppies 14022
Oil, 20x16, on Canvas 3/4" depth

A new Schmincke Half-pan watercolor sets with 12 colors and 12 empty half pans I filled with my own colors. Sale still on at Wet Paint until the 15th.

I've been enjoying using some watercolors again and studying Joyce Hicks new book, Painting Beautiful Watercolor Landscapes,  and doing some of her exercises from the book and DVD's. If you are looking for a good watercolor book to study from, this one is a good choice. Explanations are clear and it has good demo instructions.

This seagull painting has sold and flown off to grace a beach house in Florida. I've always liked the muted colors in this one.

Suzy Pal is busy getting her new studio ready for classes and I'm scheduled to give an art journal, 2 day workshop in October 17 and 18. See my website for more details. 
I have written an ArtByte about the process of torn paper collage for the Daily Paintworks site is available 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. Here is the web address and browse and download some of the free ones by Carol Marine or another favorite artist such as Julie Ford Oliver that will explain some of the tools she uses in an oil painting technique. 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.
