Re: Basic 101: Class 13

Thanks for the new lesson JayD. Hey, Where's the bunny?
Hi everyone. I was on the lookout yesterday for possible Plein Air scenes for this lesson. Unfortunately, we got ANOTHER 6" of snow since then with more coming. Changes the views for sure. Well, there is a funky old shed right out my back window that is going to be torn down in the next couple of years - I think it is my most likely candidate. Has tons of "character".
Have a great day everyone.
Barbara

Afternoon All!

Hey Ann! Beautiful rope!

Dave, Glad you're back!

Barb,
Yeh, looks like you got the snow we were to get as well. Passed north again.

I picked my still life last week and I will be doing an old abandoned sugar shack on a friends property, complete with the pots and all. As it is 1/4 mile into the woods, I will start with a photograph and visit the site Saturday morning. My schedule won't allow me to get there in the daylight, unless I get sick (cough-cough).

Re: Basic 101: Class 13

Pouring down rain here is Georgia. Must be universal. I did do lots of sketching in Florida last week, but no finished drawings. Maybe I should go back there? I do have a photo of a birdhouse/apartment house in the back yard. My SIL said he would fix it up and put it back on a pole. But it would take more work than he has time to do and I don't want to be a slum landlord. I have tried painting it, but maybe a drawing would turn out better.

Re: Basic 101: Class 13

Hi everyone!

I've been thinking and thinking about my outdoor still life. I know I have photos I could work from, but would like to do something "live", preferably something I can see from my window. Even though I teased JayD about "cold" NC weather, I'm not much of a cold lover myself.

We got the same snow that Barbara got, but only 4" or so and already starting to melt.

Ann, I checked out the values thread in the watercolor gallery and had to fight the urge to join. I have the hardest time keeping up here. I knew I couldn't do both. But I will bookmark it and will try to do it on my own. A lot of people on this thread also do the portrait classes or the weekly drawing thread or post their own individual stuff. I don't know how they do it. I can't keep up!

Hi to Connie, Judi, Boot, CJ, Jay, Sults, Dave, Mary and anyone else I missed. I'm looking forward to seeing some great outdoor still lifes/lives. (What is the correct way to say that?!?)

Re: Basic 101: Class 13

Hi everyone
I am an ice-sicle I was outside trying to find something to sketch and with my fractured rib and hurt arm I gave up on the dang cold.

We received 7 inches of the white stuff last night and it has not let up. See my car this morning and out my backdoor. I like our huge rock but that is not man made. hmmmm

Connie, a birdhouse on the ground would be interesting too. It tells a story of a retired birdhouse or that a cat invaded it so hard it fell.

Hi Stacy

Hi again Boot

Judi you can have your snow back. (inserts smiley sticking tongue out).
Don't forget to RATE the thread everyone

Re: Basic 101: Class 13

Nice snow, Sults! Nice looking neighborhood, too!

Well, I have a couple of SLs in the back yard, one of which can be done standing at the kitchen window. The other is at the back of the lot, so maybe I can do that one if it doesn't rain next weekend.

Once again, though, work comes first . . . it's so unfair!

I think sitting in my car with the window cracked will be enough en plein air for me. Although we had our share of snow so far, I feel fortunate that it is staying just above freezing and raining.

Meteir and everyone--just do your very best! You all will perservere. Remember what Monet did after his wife died.

Um . . . I guess what he did would depend on whether he liked her or not. But what does that have to do with us???

Maybe JayD is suggesting that we should do very large drawings outdoors, like the 2.5m high canvas Monet painted outside. He had a trench dug so that it could be raised and lowered to the right height! Now that is a REAL plein aire artist!! Mind you, it was probably summertime in France...

Re: Basic 101: Class 13

Upon Camille's demise--Monet spent a GREAT deal of time OUTSIDE in the cold painting ice as it flowed along the river. Every moment yields inspiration of some sort. Brrrrrrrrr.

Re: Basic 101: Class 13

We got 7 inches here in NJ also. I took a few photos outside, of flower pots covered with snow, and even one of my snowblower - but none of them inspire me to draw them. It's melting today but I gotta clean - company tomorrow and for the rest of the week. I will find something. Did I hear that this class will be extended a week also?

Sultry - that view of your car under the snow is a still life.
