Hi all, This looks a lot better than the photo, Coming Soon Artic Sea Resorts, pallete painting using watercolor , gesso and gel medium 11x14
Through trial and error, I have at least most of my ?s answered re. posting pics for the Chall. now.
Hi Kim, I apologize for not answering this yesterday. It was my experience in June that you CAN edit the title and pictures after first posting them. Two photos can be posted side-by-side if, when you are posting them and the "maximum height and width" boxes come up, you make the maximum width small enough to accommodate two images. I will send you my phone number via the conversation feature in case you would like to call me. Although I've only hosted the forum once, I'm happy to give you any info I learned in doing so.
Comments and critiques are welcomed and appreciated.
Jen C & C's always welcome
Fred, the Texas Transportation Commission is meeting today to discuss giving some 2,000 miles of farm-to-market roads back to cities and counties to maintain (in a money-saving measure for the state), so your highway painting is so timely. I know you must follow infrastructure news as your paintings on this topic always reflect the current news. Great visual commentary!
And, as far as the Arctic goes, it would not surprise me to see your idea coming to fruition sometime in the future ... As you are probably aware, the melting of Arctic ice has already opened up a new shipping channel for oil from South Korea across Southern Russia and through a Swedish fjord to Europe, saving shippers from the cost and risk of Suez Canal crossings.
Fred ~ This is a great effect using the thick gesso under watercolors. Texture is so interesting.
Comments and critiques are welcome.
Fred, I want to echo Nealy's comment - sorry, commented on the message and neglected to comment on the art! Also, just looked at photos of the Rainbow Mountains and your abstract makes perfect sense.
Hi all, Thank you Alex and Nealey, I mix a rather large quantity of 1/2 gesso,1/2 gel medium mix an amt with color and stir but still show some white and apply with a palette knife. This is Bennie and Ruthie leaving Venus perhaps to stop at earth for a visit perhaps not. Venus is a beautiful planet with beautiful inhabitants but would not be an interesting place to live because all the inhabitants are of the same race and culture also the planet is devoid of animal life and birds. They promise Venus 1 that they would not divulge that life exists on Venus. 11x14 watercolor
Hi Fred, I realize that I thought Venus's name was Venus ! as opposed to Venus 1 and apologize for the error. Anothing intriguing painting with a wonderful rocky surface and beautiful land and sky colors ...
Hi all, Thanks again Alex, Bennie and Ruthie decide to make a quick stopover on earth to see if their remaining family members want to join the colony they started on Mars. their answer is an empathic YES because although still beautiful, their habitat is rapidly disappearing due to ? 11x14 watercolor
Fred you are going to get a bigger space ship or do a lot of shuttling back and forth and you know the price of fuel.
C and C always welcomed
Your rainbow mountains is pretty. Are you sure it is China I didn't see the Great Wall
Your political painting is nice too. Do you use a brush to do that lettering or a pencil?
Fred, the sky and foliage are so pretty in this painting of Bennie and Ruthie inviting the other members of their family to join them. In terms of the story, it reminds me of emigrants in history who traveled long distances, many times never to be able to return or even stay in touch ... A scary and brave adventure.
