I haven’t always been an oil painter, 2013 brought in the desire to try new paints and techniques, so I’m stirring it up a bit……..that’s what I’ve been doing with an online class with the phenomenal Jodi Ohl.  Jodi shares her newest techniques with this fabulous  juicy watercolor.

I would like to thank Jodi for reviving the watercolorist in me. Check out Jodi’s art and her blog,  you could also sign up for her Toying on Yupo online workshop (that’s what I’m taking…we could play together) …….. here’s a link to her blog http://sweetrepeats.blogspot.com/

Coming up soon, it’s another Kathy Surprise giveaway for one of my blog followers…stay warm!

Hello followers, I do hope your 2013 is full of lovely moments you can truly cherish. This past weekend was a blast with a paint buddy of mine……we traveled to Onslow County to paint with the OOPS group (Onslow Outdoor Painting Society). Usually OOPS paints plein air, but decided to paint still lifes in the studio.

Using a cool APP called Value Viewer, I edited my photo of the still life to display a grid and to change the colors into light, medium and dark values.

dried paint on my palette

Scraping off old oil paints from my Christmas commissions and getting ready for 2013 paintings. This scraper came from our local hardware store, Bladen Builders in Elizabethtown.  It is the perfect tool to scrape off old dried paint from my glass palette.  My glass palette came from Five Lakes Glass in Elizabethtown, NC. It makes “out with the old, in with the new” much easier.
