I'm afraid I'm not painting anything but the lessons for Suzanne McDermott's online course right now. I'm enjoying it thoroughly, but feel I should be doing something else - for me - in a larger size. I have something in mind but the days end and I've done nothing but think about it. Maybe that's okay. Thinking is good.
In the meantime, I wander the web and view blogs I enjoy and find new ones, too. Here's a favorite of mine (Randall David Tipton) and the painting he has up right now is absolutely delicious with color!! Makes me want to step into that scene and live there. Take a look and see if you don't agree.
Although I don't paint this way, I would love to be able to paint like a colorist. Color gets me - grabs me - captures me - takes me places that a more muted palette cannot. I gues that's why Randall David Tipton and Carol Carter are two of my faves because of the way they use color - bold, sassy, crazy, wild, calming, unusual, zingy, fun, beautiful color!!! Take a look at Carol's recent peppermint piggies and I dare you not to smile!
And speaking of color, Suzanne McDermott has an itch to change up her palette and you can see the wonderful results here on her blog.
I tell you, the world is just so FULL of amazing artists and their work which fills our days with delicious colors, great values, interesting shapes and unique viewpoints. And this just notes 3 of them!!! Go out and view artwork - at a gallery or online - and see what might inspire you, challenge you, or fill you with joy.
