Well I finished the 4th painting for the online class: Imaginary Visit to the Garden.
This week we were doing Garden Tools. I took a couple old tools from my garage and set up a pose. I found an old shovel with rust which I use all the time. And I found an old rusty scythe. I think this one is more of a grass and weed cutter. I floated the rose in the water bowl. The rose is from my David Austin English rose bush named Belle Story.
Here is my photo:
Here is my sketch after 30 minutes:
And here is my finished painting:
In the class blog everyone was very nice and gave good compliments. But there was something that I kept reading. They said this is not a journal entry kind of painting.
I guess I am confused because the class is a Visit to the Garden class like when I took a Visit to the Beach. There are classes called Journal classes. This one wasn't a journal class. I do know that in most of the lessons it is common to write on the painting a note about our visit to the garden and what we saw, how the weather was, a poem, etc.
So when I am inspired to do a painting and not write a journal entry, well I guess I am a rebel and I just do it. Call me Rebel Carol. I think I have always had some of that in my blood.
Happy painting and let that rebel out of you!!!
