Nov 20, 2016 Up the Autumn Road Painting

It's been almost 3 months since I painted last time. It was fun.
The painting is called: "Up the Autumn Road" and I followed half way tutorial by Tim Gagnon.
It's on 10x20 inches of stretched canvas, using acrylic paints.

Mountain Aspen painting, September 4, 2016

This lesson is based on Tim Gagnon's online lesson called "Mountain Aspen". It's on 18x24 inches stretched canvas using acrylic paints.

I finished the lesson but didn't like how my mountain looks at all. Somehow I couldn't see the difference between the sky and the mountain and also there was a rock mountain in front that  didn't show nicely. All looked lost.

Here is the first mountain that I did

Since I wasn't happy with the outcome, I redo my mountains, using different colors and techniques I learned from another painter. Here is the second and final version which I'm really happy with.

It took 8 hours for this painting to finish due to redo the whole mountain, but it was really worth it :)

I've learned this painting by watching Jerry Yarnell's online painting class called Big Ears, a Kudu buck.
It's done on 16x20 inch of stretched canvas using acrylic paints.

So much fun to learn this especially how to paint the fur of this beautiful animal.

May 1, 2016 Rocky Mountain High painting

I've decided to join back the Yarnell School online for painting classes for few months. I had to quit for few months due to busy scheduling, but I decided to join back today.

I started this new month with his lesson: Rocky Mountain high on 18x24 inches stretched canvas using acrylic paints.

Took me almost 6 hours to paint this but it was so much fun and so much that I learned.

Night Sky Clouds painting, April 10, 2016

I've been wanting to paint a night sky with puffy clouds. Sounds simple but took a lot of layering to paint from dark background to the white. It was fun learning this from Tim Gagnon, one of my favorite painters.

This is done on 11x14 inches stretched canvas using acrylic paints.

Weathered Barn, Mar 6, 2016

Decided to paint 'weathered barn' from Jerry Yarnell's lesson on 16x20 inches stretched canvas using acrylic paints.
I love old and weathered looking barn so this painting was perfect. The challenge I had with this painting was the wagon. It was a learning for me to put the wagon in front of the barn and learned the perspective and angle to make it right.

Queen Anne Cottage painting, January 31, 2016

This is my first painting I've done in 2016. It's on 11x14 inches of canvas board using acrylic paints.
I got this image called Queen Anne cottage from the book called Paint Charming Cottages & Villages.

Took me over 8 hours to paint this as there were so many details, but it was so much fun.
