Oil Painting for Beginners
Ok don't laugh but I am doing a painting class this weekend. It is an oil painting class run by Ken Harris who has a tv show on a local station but I have always been impressed at how he seems to magically create trees and skies and other things with a flick of a brush or palette knife. So when I heard about this class I signed up.
He does seem to have an ongoing theme of palm trees but I left them out of the second painting below.
Anyway - I am having fun and even Peter was a little impressed when I brought these two masterpieces home tonight. At least I am learning some techniques and it is always good to learn something new - and I got to buy some more paints and things which is always a bonus
I wonder what tomorrow will bring.
