June 21, 2015 Blue Heron Painting

Today I decided to paint from one of my favorite painters, Tim Gagnon's lesson.
I love Blue Heron. For Chinese, heron represents strength, purity, patience, and long life. This is my second effort of painting Heron again. I painted the first one from Brenda Harris' book sometime in January this year but wanted to paint a portrait-like this time.

It was so much fun layering colors over and over so many times to make it looks real and soft feather-like.

This is done on 16x20 inches stretched canvas using acrylic paints.

June 14, 2015 Wet day to Pray

I followed the "Inspiration of Painting" by Jerry Yarnell's video for this painting. It's called "Wet day to Pray", a beautiful country church with puddles of water on the driveway and although the sky looks overcast, we could see there is a sun ray across.

This painting is done on 16x20 inches of stretched canvas using acrylics.

June 12, 2015 Hawaiian Horizon Painting

I took this painting class done by Vine Gogh. This painting is called Hawaiian Horizon and it's one on 16x20 inches stretched canvas using acrylic paints.

It's been a while since I went to this kind of painting class, probably over a year ago. But it's kind of nice to do something spontaneous once a while, spending Friday night out, painting something pretty.
