More on the Frank Baggett painting class: We are painting scenes of Tennessee creeks and roads and here are 2 of my paintings. The top one is from the first class I attended and I like the way the lower 2/3rd of the painting turned out. Learning to create water with rocks and lichen and sticks and logs in it was really fun. I like the background trees, too. Not crazy about the pond & bright grassy area toward the back; it catches the eye but seems too bland compared to the rest of the scene. This one I will keep for myself to think about and use as a reference for my own plein air creek paintings.
The second class we did another creek and I'm way less excited about how my painting turned out. I'm not sure why I rendered the creek banks like straight, rigid zig zags and there's not much going on in all that water. Sometimes I will revisit a painting and do corrections, but I haven't felt so inspired with this one. Still, there are things to learn, even in our mistakes.
Thanks for viewing my art and for reading my blog!!

Hello! My name is Wendy and I am passionate about oil painting! Whether in the studio or out in Mother Nature, I get lost in the experience of capturing on canvas the moment and the feel of what I am painting. I pour my love and energy into every single piece of artwork and I hope it shows! This blog is a place where I can use words to talk about art, painting, life, faith, things that make me laugh, and things that inspire. I love every response, so don't be shy about leaving a comment...
