Landscape Ladies

Landscape, Start to Finish
What is your process on a painting?

Here was our process for a landscape.

OK, it's really hot and humid here and I can't go outside for a long period of time.
But, we did go out and look at things to paint,
sketched things to paint,
and photographed what we would paint.

This was our final selection.

Katelyn is in the pink shirt 
and my granddaughter, America is the blond.

We're back in the studio and beginning to sketch in our paintings.

We're working on 6" x 6" canvas panels.

We're making some headway.

We won't get all the elements of our original sketch in today,
but we learned a lot in the process.

She got in all the main elements of this painting and is doing a great job
following directions and using them in her own way.

I did to teach them how to do the landscape.

Both girls seemed to have a good time completing their paintings. 

I think they did a really good job.

What do you all think?



  1. Fantastic post, Sharon, and how wonderful to see your students having such a good time. Please tell them there are other artists out here who are SO proud of them! And of their teacher, of course...

  2. thanks for the comment Meredith. I am very proud of both girls and think they did a great job.

  3. I love your little students! They are really doing an awesome job too! They are budding artists and will remember this process for ever, I'm sure. Looks like a fun class!

  4. Thanks Cathy. Aren't they just cute. They did do an awesome job and thanks for telling them. Hopefully they did learn something as well as had a fun time.
