Wanted to place the new top image next to the two competing figure line art studies I’d included as a side so to speak in a previous post w/the youngest grandchild (thus the “continued” part of this post’s title 😊 ) but the gallery shot image option for my post compressed the side by side initial studies too much. This should still work though, with the new image top & prev 2 studies below) to show where I borrowed from both studies to make one I’m much happier with.
I chose the left side of the initial 2 studies, despite needing to redo the lady’s arms a bit on the sides where they touched her body, because the rest of her torso and esp her legs really appealed to me the way the lines moved.
The doggies were both improved, with more elements from the right side drawing; the lady’s hair gained a touch of the line work also from the right side; and the right side’s top right sky area was copied and pasted over the erased same area of the left side image – plus ditto the top left of the sky (the two sky areas done separately from each other as their placement and final sizing differed). All digital work was via Affinity Photo.
I’m gonna let this one sit a bit, as I’m still inclined to work on the new Greenbelt watercolor, Woman and Child (still in the figure art only stage). And, wanted to add, saw a YouTube video I thought was very helpful regarding watercolor painting figures by Liron Yanconsky, someone new to me. He actually showed his drawing in his figures and how he created light & shade. I think he may join my other fav teachers I like to see work and pointers like Dianne Mize and Hazel Soan ; we’ll see, but it does show how and what I might could where I left off with my figure study for the lady (which included a dapple-light-like value study) 😊
That’s it for now, take care everyone – please stay well! 💕

- January 22, 2022 – Rethinking (re-engineering?) How I Post About Images I Upload to #FineArtAmericaMy most emerging challenge as I ramp up being able to and wanting to paint more often – each day if possible – is time. Not a big surprise for all the folks with lots of interests and/or commitments, even for us 70+ year olds, lol! Though, surprisingly, just as difficult to navigate the demands and siren calls of attention in our lives. Kinda nice though, that kind of problem has persisted from when….
- January 21, 2022 – New 16×20 Inch #Acrylic Upload @FineArtAmerica – Healthy Vines Happy HeartsA relatively simple work with a slightly more complex arrangement of paint application than my usual. That’s a mouthful, lol! But pretty accurate in term of my process! 😊 First, I laid in a faint yellow base, a mix of watercolor and acrylic. Next I laid over a….
- January 20, 2022 – How I Applied Dianne Mize’s Art Tip, The Visual Path, To My Work-In-Progress, Part 2As mentioned in my prev post, my then problem and now radical solution in re to a painting I’d struggled with, done the most I felt I could, and was still quite unhappy with, began after reading then reblogging Dianne Mize’s most recent art tip, The Visual Path, plus some reading I’ve been doing in The Adjacent Possible, re listening to one’s creative needs and acting on them. I’d wanted to add a violet toned painting to one of my ongoing series, one involving 12×24 panoramic monochromatic impressionist abstract work. It began well enough, with….
- January 19, 2022 – How I Applied Dianne Mize’s Art Tip, The Visual Path, To My Work-In-Progress, Part 1It began after reading then reblogging Dianne Mize’s most recent art tip, The Visual Path, plus some reading I’ve been doing in The Adjacent Possible, about listening to one’s creative needs and acting on them. I’d already begun a new violet lay-in, destined, I thought, to be called Violet Impressionist Abstract 1; all along the lines of my other mostly-or-all monochromatic impressionist abstract work I’ve posted about ( my red and blue samples further down ).
- January 18, 2022 – Reblog / Review : Working the Painting Language – The Visual Path, via Dianne MizeDianne’s continuing series of tips and samples of painting’s language of line and shapes and so much more, including, as per this reblog of her most current post, The Visual Path, have been a source of inspiration for me for quite a while now, and this is no exception. She provides not only the 2 examples in my header, but an entirely different style image, one from one of my favorite painters, John Singer Sargent, and ties it to the two simpler – yet in principle – similar images top of the page.
- January 17, 2022 – Art Delivery to Cypress Grill Austin for a Creative Arts Society Rotating Member ShowingI’m happy to post I’m placing my 1st piece of art work at a Creative Arts Society member venue in over a year and a half!
- January 16, 2022 – My Most Viewed Image this Past Week @FineArtAmerica, Fantasy Landscape – New 16×20 #LyricalAbstract #AcrylicPaintingFantasy Landscape is currently residing at the Old Bakery & Emporium in downtown Austin across from the Texas State Capital. It’s a super playful acrylic I didn’t realize would be “so much” a landscape as it turned out, lol! All part of the “discovery” process inside each artist, often call the landscape inside, probably in more senses than one, as Joan Mitchell has alluded to.
Thanks again, everyone! 😊
