A Little Bit Bolder

Shasta's II


This is my second attempt of the Lemon Shasta daisies at home.  It is a little bit bolder which I like.  I'm still working on finding the right paint thickness and using limited strokes.  What a great challenge!

Workshop Delight


Lemon Shastas


I had the great pleasure of attending a workshop with Gina Brown in Decatur, Alabama this past week.  This was one of the practice paintings.  She did a fabulous job of encouraging us to be much looser with our paints and use a limited palette to achieve a unified effect.  I can't wait to paint more!  I'm not sure if I will work on this one some more or just save as a practice.

Watercolors can be so much fun, especially when you give yourself no rules on colors or lines! I hope you smile when  you take a look at these.  They make me laugh every time.

Favorite Nest

Favorite Nest
6x6"  Oil on Gessoboard

Yes, artists have their favorites too.  One learns to post and show the good, the better, and the not so good, because you never know what someone else might see in your painting.  This one has a lot of 'fluff' and golden light.  And I'm always a fan of some lavender in the spring.

Ready or Not...


"Signs of Spring"   
6x6  Oil with Palette Knife on Gesso Board


Spring is not officially here, but there are certain signs of it for sure!  I have been wanting to paint a series of bird nests for a while now.  I have artist friends who have mastered this beautifully who inspire me. There are more to come and they are available at https://www.dailypaintworks.com/artists/elaine-ford-5747/artwork
