Layer Love: The Old Sea Calls to Me

Lesson two of Julie Prichard’s Layer Love is “The Old Sea Calls to Me”.  I have done three 9×12″ pieces so far.  Knowing how much paint to put out on my palette for mixing is one of the things I need to fine tune; don’t want to waste any paints 🙂  I found that scanning the pieces made them look even darker than when I photographed them.

Here is my second piece for Lesson 2


and a third attempt


There is so much to learn, Julie is a great teacher…’s fun having painty hands!  I am going to have quite a lot of background pieces.  You can see Julie’s gorgeous class canvas here.
