The Painter's Three

There are three cornerstones that will make or break a painting:

Color mixing
Application
Composition

If you know what to do with these, all that is left is to show your work to someone.

Color theory is a life-long love affair. Don't miss the basics.
Application is a personal approach that should be comfortable to the artist.
Composition involves laws of eye movement and engages the audience.

Study these and enjoy the journey.

DJ's been Painting


If you read my last post, the title was:
"Simply Get On With It"

Well, I took my own advice:
I Simply Got On With It!

DJ...
painted over fifty paintings in 2012.
submitted to a juried show and was accepted. whee.
had a solo exhibit in the Autumn of 2012 with 100 guests at the opening.

That's why I've been absent from the blogosphere.

2013?
Been busy in the school-house, teaching and mentoring and loving those teenagers.

Hope you have been busy producing, learning and teaching as well!
Please tell me about it.
I would like to hear what you've been up to ~
