The TriState Photographic Society artist reception was today from 1 - 4 pm and went well with close to 100 people coming through to view the exhibit, have a cookie or other snack and talk with the photographers. There were some new members' work I'd never seen before so it was fun to see new stuff. I'm not a member - or a photographer - but I go to support my sweetie, Jerry, who is my favorite photographer.
The show runs at the Sharon Woods Visitor Centre (a very nice venue) through Sunday, April 18th so go over and check it out if you have the time and are in the area.
And here is a silly little landscape I played with by:
Putting the watercolor paint on a large piece of plexiglass
Spritzing my paper
Laying the paper - wet side down - on the plexiglass
Picking it up and seeing what it looked like.
I've seen things like this done (in art magazines) but never tried it and thought I'd play with it. I did see a landscape but can't seem to bring it to a finish for some reason.
I can see the water and beachy area and the tree at the edge and the tree/shrub line but...not sure about the background. Mountains? Clouds?
Oh, well, it was just a play time so not seriously worried about this one and have been working a bit on the Spanish Moss so will have something to share there soon...unless I ruin in which is possible if I don't take the time to see it clearly before putting that brush to paper!
