* Eggs Posed, a cute name, but hard to implement on canvas
Here are the new demonstrations I told you about. 2 new paintings with some great tips on how to paint things that are well, quite simple but really hard to get just right, and then one that is well, complex as all get out, but simple when you take it step by step.
Confused? Don't be, it's just the turkey hangover you are suffering from. This is hoping you and yours had a wonderful Thanksgiving as we do have so much to be thankful for!
On another sadder note.
My heart goes out to those effected by the recent storm "Sandy" on the east coast of the US. Here in Virginia, there was damage, but nothing like what is further north.
A salute to the brave men and women that are still helping in cleanup efforts and restoration of utilities in that part of the country. Unless you've gone without power for several days, you can't appreciate what that all means unless you've gone through it yourself.
Form of an object is so important when you're trying to depict something in a realistic manner. Round forms are some of the most difficult to achieve. Getting that gradual change in tone from dark to light can befuddle even the most skilled of artists.
Before each demonstration, especially for the older demonstrations and to make room for the newer ones that come off the easel, I'll include a small picture of the actual painting being demonstrated.
Should have done this along time ago.
What are they all about? This is a social media site similar to facebook, or tweeter, but it's based on images only. This is an artist's dream! Soooo many pictures, but not enough time to see them all.
The buttons above send you to my page, but once your registered, you'll have your own page to set up and start collecting your favorite images!
If you really like a painting or image found on the site (Easy Oil Techniques), feel free to push that little button underneath the image!
It will post the image to the Pinterest site. You do need to go through a simple registration process, but you will not be disappointed. The pictures available are simple amazing and will truly get your creative juices flowing with ideas for your next painting project!
Put out great information, but also pay the bills.
When you do find a great site, stick with it and watch it grow.
I've done that with Richards site and workshops.
Man, does he have a great a number of excellent workshops. These have been featured in some very hi end international art magazines.
He's running a great Christmas special on them right now! Click below and do check out what he has to offer.
Don't forget the great addition to the site is the Facebook application!
If you're a Facebook Fan, then you'll appreciate this. You can "like" a page, and comment on it's contents so your Facebook friends can see what all the hub-bub is about, and where you spend your valuable hours learning on how to paint great things!
Spread the word! Click on the like buttons and give me your comments on the site! You don't even have to leave the site, it's all right there for your convenience.
And our readers love 'em!
You can follow me, and I'll follow you back, but do reply to me that you are following so's I can follow you back! just tweet an "@delmus" in your tweet box!
Well I hope the information was useful to you. Future ezines will be in a similar format, just different information.
Let me know what you think! Have I helped you in any way? Twitter me, or drop me an email. I would love to see some of your work!
Till next time!
This is Delmus Phelps wishing you a happy painting day!
