Thanks for checking in with me today! Thank you all for following my work and my blog. I love your comments and suggestions, and my work improves because of you!
I wanted to blog about my series of the, “Little Chubby Animals!” These actually started in my art class with an inspiration photo. I loved painting the chubby little bird so much, I had the idea of painting a wooly little lamb in a field of green. And, so I did! Because I like odd numbers; it is more pleasing to the eye, I thought why not paint a little white rabbit on a path in the woods filled with Daffodils and crocus! I had so much fun painting them, and there will be more of them to come, as I have had a great response to them, and to be honest, it was just plain fun to paint these little creatures!
The key to becoming a better painter, in my opinion, is not only to challenge yourself with subjects you have never done or shied away from, but to paint these very subjects along with what you love to paint, daily. Every single day, I just paint or sketch something. Anything. And in my case, my go to is water and sky and cityscapes. However, I know I have to challenge myself with subjects I rarely go to. And that is what I plan on doing more of this year!
