Painting Frenzy

If I can get these to post, here is some pictures I painted. The cottage and White Stargazer lilies are from a workshop I attended last weekend with Linda Coulter. She teaches the Grisaille method. It was alot of fun and work too. The Cala Lilys are my design that I am teaching Tues. night to my class and the Raccoon is a Donna Dewberry design that I will be teaching at a all Day Workshop in my home studio on Aug. 2. If any of you are in or close to my area and would like to come, please email me or let me know and I will send details. Thanks for letting me share my work.

Oh my! That cottage scene is so pretty. Love the sections of shade and light. And those lillies look so realistic--almost like I could lean over and smell them. Cute little racoon, know your class will love him, and the cala lillies will be a fun project to paint also. I think I have a video of DDewberry painting the cala lilly, but I've not tried to do them yet. So do you display allot of your canvases in your studio? Bet they would make for a beautifully decorated wall.

I've forgotten what area you live in. Doubt that I could paint such realistic things too. I think I'm more of a "crafts" type painter than an "artist" type painter. LOL

Krafty, they are beautiful!! Did you like the underpainting in grey tones? It was odd to me the first time I tried it but WOW! when you put on the color it was like magic. And Linda is such a pretty painter. If I knew where you lived I just might have to come to class. You know I love taking classes from others.

Your paintings are lovely!
