My Art - Impressionists

I mentioned earlier on a post that I've been learning about myself from the Impressionists co-op my friend is teaching. What I've learned is that I like my art! I'm usually careful not to do art in front of others. I think I just needed to try some new things!


The top painting was my very first attempt at oil painting ever! I was trying to do the Impressionist style with mixing colors and leaving brushstrokes. It was so fun! But, I don't know what I was thinking with the bridge... it shouldn't "end" in the water. Oh, well.



This is my second oil painting. I'm not totally pleased with the boat, but I do like this painting.



This is my chalk pastels. It's in the style of Dega. :-)




Lastly, this is my water colors. We should have used a different type of canvas. And, since it was running, I wasn't brave enough to paint a lady - just a ballet dress.

OH, how fun! I love to paint, too! I've never tried oils, but I use watercolor a lot and I've done pastels. Do you guys have a pottery-painting type of store there? GB and I like to paint pottery sometimes.
