So many things I would love to do and blogging is one of them.
I haven't forgotten how but it has been a while.
Photo geek info- Nikon D500, Nikon 80-400, F8 1/500th, ISO 2000
Shot in crop mode in camera and then cropped more in Adobe Lightroom
I do the homework I make my class do for the most part. I only posted 400 but made them post 600. I upload some school work and some personal photos to show them the kind of things that I am looking for and to give them ideas of things to shoot. The idea is based on the Finding Vivian Maier documentary on how she went everywhere with her camera and how she just shot the things that are around her.
This a fall colors painting based on a photo I liked from the @usinterior Instagram. I havent been painting long and I like simple shapes and non complicated colors. My painting is super simplistic but it is a step in the right direction. It is one more painting under my belt. I am one painting better than I was yesterday.
I painted this by following a tutorial by Ekaterina Smirnova that I found on YouTube.
I love painting. I like this painting and I really like the way the sky turned out. That sky is what I call a happy accident. I couldn't reproduce that look to save my life.
I heard my friend an master watercolor painter, Tim Hacker, tell someone who asked that it took him 50 years and 6 hours to paint his Christmas card for this year. .I doubt I have 50 years left to watercolor but I sure am looking forward to Christmas break and some more hours of painting.
post on the Country Living webpage. You have to scroll about halfway down and there it is. The credit for the original art work goes to someone over at Brackett Library.
