Trying Something New

What and How Do I Learn
by Try8ng Something New 


There were no test tubes or bunson burners,
but there was lots of experimenting going on.

I don't usually do a background like this, but it was fun
playing in the paint.  

We have lots of tulips blooming in our yard right now
and these orange ones are beautiful.

The goal was to work quickly,
achieve that foreshortened front view,
and to have lots of fun and not stress over whatever came out.

This was painted on 140 lb. water color paper.
As usual, I learned lots doing this painting.
One of the main things was I loosened up quite a bit.

I tend to paint tight and anything I can do to loosen up
is a good thing.

Thanks for stopping by.

Have a great day.

I'm a nature artist and I love to paint old barns, rivers and lakes, trees and fence rows. I work almost daily trying to improve my art and all that entails. I try to learn all I can from others and from the earth itself by being aware of all God has created and its beauty. You can purchase paintings by contacting me at slgraves6@gmail.com.
