Paint out, Monday, April 29, Sauvie Island with Host Vicki Zimmerman
Tim, Dave Vicki, Stephanie, Raphael, Chris, Donna, David M, Denise, Celeste
We met at the Cracker Barrel at 9 and then drove to the location. We all fanned out and reconvened at Noon to have a look at what we did..and to share a few thoughts about our paintings.
Tim: I intentionally sought out the most difficult subject! (A dead tree that broke apart). I wound up satisfied with the effort.
Dave: I chose a spot over by the cattle...so I elected to put in a cow!
Donna: I liked the underpainting that I did at the start...so I left a lot of it peaking through.
Celeste: The sky was so uninteresting in the beginning. I painted a 2nd painting and I felt satisfied that I captured the colors of the day.
Raphael: I tackled the broken tree also. It was challenging --I will return to work more on it.
Wendy: I haven't painted in pastel for awhile..so I brought them today. I wanted to add a "little person" (I was inspired by another artist who also put in figures).
Vicki: I was drawn to this big shadow on the ground. I painted over an old painting...(which I always like to do_!
Stephanie: I wanted to make sure I made my trees soft to blend in with the sky. This is how it looked to me. In this 2nd painting I was mostly concerned with big shapes.
Denise: I decided to stop painting on my painting...because it wasn't turning out--so I did this pencil sketch instead!
Chris: I did a sketch too, but I'll pass for right now.
Thanks for some of the photos, Dave Burbach
