Sylvia was a mysterious ballerina that performed in France.  She had the most exotic feeling while she performed.  The ladies of France wanted their daughters to fine the grace and beauty that enthralled the audiences of France.  In this painting it was my goal to let her beautiful hair down and wrap her beauty in it.

Practice Portrait by artist Pat Meyer

Well the temps are now hovering about 100 so no outside painting.  Time to settle into the easy chair in the studio and do some practice drawing.  Portrait drawing is so interesting but so hard.  The time just slipped away as this was done.  What a wonderful way to work on my skills on a hot afternoon.

Entries!!! Last night I was trying to decide which of the paintings that I had painted for a competition would be the best entry. When an artist enters a competition they are putting themselves out there with a hope that they get in. It is always hard to know what the judges will be looking for and then you ask yourself am I good enough? Will they like my art? Etc. Etc. It comes down to Just Do It! My feeling is that you do art because you Love the Journey so what else really matters. www.PatMeyerdailypainter.blogspot.com

This spring at the flower nursery my eye was fixed upon this double begonia.  It spoke to my heart so of course it had to go home with me.  The first painting of the begonia was painted in a still life set up and was so fun.  But then my thoughts turned to something a little more abstract of the flower so this piece was developed.

Demo by artist Pat Meyer


Demo for class
to purchase contact
Pat@Meyer.net

One of the most common mistakes that beginning painters make is to include too many hard edges.  Maybe this is because we are often taught as children to “fill in all the colors”.   If you paint in this manner you are not seeing the world as an artist. 
Sharp edges are compelling when combined with a polarity of values. In other words if you place a sharp edge where the light is very light and the dark is very dark you will certainly create and electrifying visual event in the painting.  But sharp edges must be kept to a minimum and used only with a clear pictorial purpose in mind.  A painting should be like a symphony with a crescendo.  Start off your painting by writing down a clear vision of where the hard edge will be placed and usually this is where you want to draw the viewers most attention.  Other areas can be broken color, softer edges and thinner paint to create your song.
