I try to walk most days, and Lake Lynn in Raleigh is close by and one of my favorite walks. I'm always taking pictures along the way and capturing the fall beauty is today's challenge. I'm learning not to be a slave to the photo, which is sometimes hard. I was watching a video by Stephen Quiller and he talked about taking a photo, doing a sketch based on the photo and then not looking at it again. It’s hard to follow his advice, but with more confidence perhaps it will be easier. Oil on canvas panel. 5 x 7 in.
I'm an fine art artist in Raleigh, North Carolina. I need a paintbrush in my hand to feel complete and I invite you to follow me on my art journey. Everyday brings new ideas and projects... there simply is not enough time... On December 1, 2012, I joined the community of artists who paint a painting each and every day. I haven't been able to keep up with the daily painting, but I'm trying hard to keep my paintbrushes busy.
