I spend a great deal of time enjoying art work which inspires me to think, to wonder, to marvel, and to create. This will be devoted to art and artists, young and old, trained and beginners, who desire and inspire. What inspires you? Without inspiration can we create? My recommendation for you to day is The Artists Network, (see link below) a wonderful place to learn!
This spring I took a watercolor workshop with Betty Carr who is a wonderful
artist who is known for her dramatic use of light. Her book, Artist Guide to Painting Light is available on Amazon, and
her website is Betty
Carr Fine Art. She is a wonderful and dramatic watercolorist. She works from
dark values to light, which is opposite to most techniques. Although the two paintings
that I finished were not favorites of mine, I definitely became bolder with
darks and lights for the other realistic paintings that I did this summer.
