Re: Homework Essentials of Painting Rocks- Week 2

Watercolor 15"x 22" This was tough. I created some awkward shapes and dark values that I regret, but I submit it as my best shot at the moment. Watercolor is not very forgiving.

Size:  325.0 KBMy first submission to homework (8x10 canvas board. Oil). I found this one to be difficult. This is my second attempt. I blocked in the first one and it just didn't work well. I hope to learn more tomorrow.

Hi John, two comments:

1. In order to upload an image you must have posted at least TWO messages without images. This is your first. Post another and then you'll be set after that. (It's probably too late to get them into today's class critique.)

2. Your PASTELS hardened? I didn't use mine for about 8 years and they were just like I'd used them yesterday. (Now I will say I was not just as able, but that's another story.) What kind are they?

Thanks Sherry, finally got it to upload.. Not sure what kind of pastels they are had them for years. The onlycolor i am having a problem with is my white stick. I used my other one fine, then i went to grab a new white. Can't get the color from it. Even rubbed it on a paper towel, hard as a rock

This was an excellent course. Learned so much. Thanks to everyone who posted paintings, too. Fun to see all the creativity.

Re: Homework Essentials of Painting Rocks- Week 2

Tried to make a few little adjustments but think I'd better stop now before I wear it out, lol. Keep in mind that I live in red rock country...

Re: Homework Essentials of Painting Rocks- Week 2

Last week in the webinar you said to resubmit this with more contrast. So here it is. This is the one I tried to do without greens. Also I took out tree forms on the right. Is it better? Is it done? Thank you!
