having fun 23

Mona Pendleton | Saturday, February 27, 2016 @ 10:10 AM | , ,


Hi there! Last night I had fun painting! Finally took the time to paint the assignment from week 5 of the 6 week online painting workshop that I'm currently taking with one of my favorite artists Dreama Tolle Perry. Our focus was a small jar of pretty blossoms. Here's my first attempt on a 12" x 12" gesso board:
One of the many things I'm learning in the course, is how to be "loose" with the brush, not painting in uniformity and embracing abstract paint brush strokes. I'm going to paint this again and again until I'm satisfied with the final outcome where I can proudly hang it in my studio along with the others from previous weeks :)

I'm linking this up with Paint Party Friday:
Thanks so much for stopping by ~ I hope you have a great weekend!
Be Sweet ;)
