Birthday Roses by artist Pat Meyer

Pat@Meyer.net

Many artist have said Pat I can't paint all those petals.  Well I agree you can't unless you are a realism artist.  I am a Representational artist that means you give it a personality of what it represents to you and your viewer.  You take what you see and simplify the shapes and forms and come up with the composition that best makes a statement for that flower.  These are the last of the garden roses and I always hate to see them go but I had fun painting these roses on my Birthday.

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

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.
