Lindsey,thank you so for this wonderful plein air painting video it was wonderful and hope you hgave more like this I just started art journaling and trying to learn how to do WC landscapes on my pages this help so your advice I will take to heart since I am trttrtying to teach myself and making many errors but I keep on trying. I wanted to thank you for your time talent and teachings they have helped and have pushed me forward on my learning.
Have a wonderful day,
I like this scene. I actually like the one you painted in the video better than the one you did in the field. Wonder why that is? Usually when I do two paintings of the same scene, I tend to like the first one I do better than the second one.
I loved this and all the painting you do. I have a question to ask of you. First of all, I am new, new at this learning process. I want to learn to watercolor and I wanted to know how I can learn to mix colors correctly. I have raised four children and taught myself to sew and a lot of things as they were growing up. I am now a grandma and just want to learn how to paint, obviously I do not want to go out to do so. Part of that is at my age I would be embarrassed at all the mistakes and the other is I have M.S. which makes attending outside events very difficult. So I was hoping you could give me suggestions to learn about colors to mix together correctly. I never let anyone see my work that I sketch in charcoal, I tell my husband that I draw “twigs” my back yard trees. He tells me he can see exactly what I am drawing and can tell what I am drawing. He is so sweet. But I want to paint with watercolors and I bought the Daniel Smith introductory set, do I need anything else, there are only six tubes. Sorry this is so long, and I am afraid this will pop up as my grandson’s site so could you please, please email me??? judi abbey firstname.lastname@example.org
I learn something new with each painting you do so thank you so much for taking the time to post the videos. Also, thanks for reviewing the Jerry Q paints. I ordered a set on EBay from old_cheap_sam http://www.ebay.com/sch/old_cheap_sam/m.html?_nkw=&_armrs=1&_ipg=&_from= and got free shipping. Also, old_cheap_sam verified that the Jerry Q and the Grace paints are made by the same company
Grace Art Materials Co. L.L.C, California.
I was excited to find this, because in addition to the cotman compact set I bought this koi set too, they were so affordable, I thought I’d buy both and see what I liked best. And this out in the field type thing was exactly what I had in mind when I bought them!
