Here is another pastel from the class I’m taking. You can read about that class here.
I have learned so much in this class and become so much more confident in doing landscapes. haven’t really done many landscapes. I am an abstract artist. Or at least I used to be. Now I’m becoming a more rounded artist.
This is very exciting for me. I really didn’t believe I could do palm trees. But, whoa, I did. I just started painting, and they appeared. I am learning more and more with realistic painting that, yes, I can do it.
I used to believe I couldn’t draw realistically. But it’s turning out I can paint realistically.
One thing I have learned since I started painting in 2012, is that in art, as in life, just show up and do your best, and you’ll do well.
It’s all in showing up and being willing, I think.
So glad you are enjoying the pastel class – wonderful sunset here. It all comes together, the more you paint the more “ah-ha’s” emerge.
Thanks for your comments. I am learning that what you say is true. I look at my paintings from a year ago, and can see real growth.
Wonderful, a great sense of movement and accomplishment. Very cool Kerry!
You can, indeed, paint palm trees, Kerry! I just LOVE the point of view (perspective?). You can certainly paint more than abstracts.
Hi Leigh, Thanks for checking out my blog and for your very kind comments.
