Joan it's hard for me to believe that this beautiful painting was done quick and with little thought! Everything about it is lovely...Great painting!!!
Hi Joan.Brilliant Sketch here. You have done a wonderful job in such a short time. Your getting a master at the quick sketch. I do quick pencil sketches at the club of members, and I start one then one minute later, they move. So it really makes you not to draw or paint fussily doesn`t it? Well done and all the best my friend.Vic.
Hi Janice, Thank you Janice. Speed painting works well for me. I have problems if I try to plan and think too much. What I do are little studies of color and brush strokes when I am not painting. It seems to help. Have a great day. Joan
Hi Vic, Thank you. I think that while I love to do these quick sketches, it is also so important to do larger works as well. Hopefully I will soon begin to do larger paintings like you my friend. I just signed up for Alex Perez Master Class painting on you tube. All the best to you.Joan
Hi Joan!... Time is not the measure of a good painting in my mind. It is the feeling a painting creates for the viewer.Obviously "You" are finding success with your "quickies"... in transmitting that "feeling" to everyone... no matter the time spent!Good work... and Good Painting Joan!Warmest regards,Bruce
Joan...a great loose landscape...it reads very well!
Hi Joan another beautiful seascape.... quiet... inviting and contemplative in spirit!I particularly enjoyed your handling of the water... the shifts in light/current really adds energy and movement to an otherwise placid scene... creating contrast!Good work Joan!Good Painting!Warmest regards,Bruce
Hi Joan,I like the sand, the rocks and green how they work together. Lovely scene. The water shows movement and depth. Can't believe you did this in 35 minutes. Wow!
Hi Bruce, Thank you so much for your encouragement on my quickies. For me, I call them my "quick kills". If it works fine, if not that's fine also. It was only 35 minutes of splashing that wonderful gooey stuff around. I have spent days and weeks only to come to a very disappointing finish. So these little studies do work for me, perhaps to proceed to a larger canvas. Thank you for stopping by and your wonderful words and wisdom. All the best to you.Joan
Hi Julie, Thank you for the very kind words. It's an honor coming from a fine artist such as you. Happy Painting to you Julie. Joan
Hi Bruce, I am so happy you noticed the water. It was almost sink or swim on this one. It was a bit boring until I decided to mess up the water a bit. Thanks again Bruce. All the best to you. Joan
Hi Suzy girl, What's not to believe. You remember stories about Bob and me painting. He would listen to my brush fly while he patiently produced a beautiful masterpiece. Back in the good old days.Joanie
