    An Oil-A-Day Adventure.

    This is 100% inspired by Seedlings thread, and by her (unknowingly) opening my eyes up to the world of daily painting and blogging. After seeing the general gist, off I popped to blogger to embark on my own daily painting challenge!

    So why post them here to you ask? Well, CA.org has been my number one lurking spot for sometime now, and I feel I owe a lot of my development to this place. As such, I feel that if I post my daily efforts here, I can recieve some good honest critiques, and also a kick up the backside should I slip-up!

    Along side that, I can write anything of note that I may learn along the way, about oil painting in general. Who knows of what use this could be to you guys. Nothing? Something? Only time will tell...

    ---------------------------------------------

    So, day one (and two actually)

    An Oil-A-Day Adventure.

    Some roses! Sheesh, how can there be so many colours in one leaf? I found myself asking this over and over as I tried to capture them Also, I feel this may have taken a little longer than the idea of Daily Painting encourages? This was a little over 2 hours? Practice may speed me up, heres hoping !

    Day two...

    An Oil-A-Day Adventure.

    Funny story behind this pansy. Shh! Twas half-inched from a roundabout flower bed in the dead of night... I had wanted to paint it as just a flower out of a clod of earth (Ill write that down for a day in the future!) But it was making a mess all over. I jammed it in this large mug instead.

    I must confess I cheated a little with the mug. It had "Property of Dave" written on it in big white letters. I was unsure if I could paint that, and so my artistic licence (read:saviour) came into play.

    Bon voyage!

    Excellent start! I too was inspired by Seedling as well as many others I'm sure, to start a Painting a Day thread. I am excited to see where this is going, looks good so far! Happy painting!

    [voodoochile] I wondered over to your thread. So glad to see other daily oilers on this board. Seems I have a warm welcome despite my lack of concept art

    Pear!

    An Oil-A-Day Adventure.

    Getting that dull, almost matt surface of the skin was difficult, to say the least! Also, less artistically speaking, as was getting the pear itself. I got most untoward looks from the girl whose door I knocked on! I was only asking her if I could take a pear off her tree with some branch attached. That and getting it all the way to the studio without the two becoming seperated.

    Wowwie! Very nice! :-)
    I think you are awesome, and I wish you the best in your endeavors, but I am tired of repeating myself, I am very busy with my new baby, and I am no longer a regular participant here, so please do not contact me to ask for advice on your career or education. All of the advice that I have to offer can already be found in the following links. Thank you.
