Plugging Away

Hi Everyone! I wanted to post an update on the progress I am making with the teapot painting. Yes, it's slow going but I'm getting areas blocked in and I'm currently blocking in the area of the spout, bottom, etc... I spent the majority of my week reading chapters from textbooks. I also want to include a link to Richard McKinley's weekly blog. Richard has three great articles on "The Switch to Digital, parts 1,2,3" on how to take digital photos of your work and how to prepare them for show entries. I thought this might be great info for any beginning artists out there because he really explains everything in great detail. For my artists pick of the week, you might want to check out Nancy Depew who paints incredible florals and does an awesome job painting silk fabric under her small works. If you get a chance, also check out Adam Vinson and Tony Curanaj's work.

Hi Pierre,
Thanks, I wish I had more time to paint but I have a lot of reading to do also. I'm glad you like the links. There are different qualities about each artists work that appeals to me whether it's lighting, composition, subject matter etc...Their work inspires me to keep painting. Will you be doing more graphite work or switching back to oils? Have a great day!
