This is my attempt after viewing Arleta Peck's video (#5). Fantastic video!! I highly recommend! Anyway....I started out way too dark. But I am pleased with some aspects. I did not have all of the colors in her palette but made do with Antique Amber, Quinacridone Rose, Prussian Blue and ultramarine blue. I really like that Antique Amber!
This is 6" x 8" on Arches 140lb paper

scruggles, tigre, Bethany and Ruth...thank you all for looking and commenting. This is a lot different from my usual slap dash paintings. *LOL*

Fagan, I like the composition and the soft colors:D

Boy this is different 4 U. All the dark light contrast is on the lower right but the pastel color holds my eye on the blooms. I might try darkening the center of the central flower or just one of those petals just about two more steps.

Thanks Carrie! that area is not quite that dark! Actually it is a lot lighter...don't know what happened. hmmmmmm

Munchkin Land? I thought you were a Hoosier like me? :)

Very nice Fagan. Somewhat Georgia O'Keefish too. Nicely done.

I find it to be a very appealing painting.

Could you tell me the purpose of the video or what you are trying to achieve in your work as a result of viewing the video?

Bev, this has a lovely soft look to it.. very relaxing...

Chooky :D:D:D

Surreal...that is a very good question! I was wanting some good instructions on glazing. Also another way of painting that was not so "slap dash" as I do. Something a little more formal. This technique I will incorporate with my "style" of painting and hopefully improve what I produce. Her (Arleta Pech) teaching techniques are very precise and easy to follow along.

Chooky...thank you! *SMILE**

Fagan, your floral is absolutely beautiful... Are you enjoying the video? I recently purchased her book! I can't wait to try my hand as well! I love the clarity of the many graduated washes... It certainly shows in your painting!!!!

Char...yes! I am a "show me" kind of person..*LOL* so it was more helpful to me. Thank you. It feels a little stiff right now...but will loosen up.

this is beautiful. I have been trying to get this technique for ages!

My first thought was WOW, that is different for Beverly. It's very nice, and I agree, used in combination with your normal style will produce magic.

I was toying with purchasing this video too (Northlight Book Club)

JoAnn and Marcia...thank you both! *SMILE*

Bill...I was confused about glazing. The video certainly helped.

Uschi...*LOL* it is a little different for me. But you will not grow unless you try different things. The video is worth it!

Hi, Beverly. This is lovely - and different for you. I love the palette and you've handled the control very well.
