I started painting on a 30 x 24" canvas today. I built a fire then set up my Julian Paris easel, that I received for Christmas, for the first time, placing it in my dining room where the light is wonderful. I kept the fire going all day so the room was cozy and bright and I was having fun, I didn't want to quit. This was my first time trying the water soluble oil paints. I bought the minimal set to make sure I liked them - clean up is so much easier and they work just like oils without the smell - I think I'm converted. / next assignment -create a moire effect with colored pencils on black paper.
The photos on the left are taken by me, Leslye, the mother. The photos on the right are taken by my daughter, Taylor – unless otherwise noted. Comments are always welcome. thanks
If you care to visit, I, Leslye, have another blog - AutumnSun where I ramble around different paths and pleasures of my own.
