Sometimes a flower at the nursery just Wow's you and this one certain did.  It's bright yellow bloom with dark green leaves just made it stunning.  My heart skipped a beat.  Never really seen that many double begonia blooms.  Big and beautiful compared to a regular begonia bloom.  Isn't God's creations just beautiful.

My Great Grandmother Grove had the most beautiful snowball bush that ran down the driveway side of the house.  We as kids would pull the big blossoms off the bush and play with them.  It use to upset her and now I know why.  The bushes are so beautiful and blow in the wind so gracefully.  On Friday I took the opportunity of the glorious day to paint outside in the backyard of my snowball bush that I planted in her honor.  This is the first of two paintings that were done this weekend of this delightful bush.

While driving down the road looking for the perfect spot to paint these lovely roses and flowers caught my eye.  That danced like sugar plums dancing in my head.  The layers of colors where so delightful that I tried capturing them in a short time frame.  The old tree was the rugged balance needed for the painting.

Last week after teaching my workshop these colorful roses were left over.  Well off to the studio to become models for a landscape rose garden painting.  My favorite rose was the white one going away from me with all it's little brown spot areas.  It is like allot of us with character.  When choosing models I will always go with the person that has more character to their face and personality.  They have more of a story of life to tell.  Which is your favorite rose and ask yourself why.

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.

Well life events have happened this last week and I have not been at the easel.  So today during the early morning of Daylight Savings time the brushes came out.  What to paint was the question.  My heart told me to keep it simple but lovely at the same time.  So as I stood there in my PJ's and house slippers this little rose painting came out.  My favorite blue flow pot became the partner to balance off the colors of the roses.

Just entered my painting to a competition.  Every time I do this it makes me think will the judges like my painting, is it good enough to get in, did it photograph correctly and so many other factors.  The other night the academy awards were on TV and watching all the people the same fear was in their eyes.  Everyone tries to put on a happy face but you know they are all so nervous to win.  The same thing happens when you put yourself out there for competition.  You hope just to be chosen and put on the wall with all the other great artist.

This last week I just wanted to play around with back ground textures and colors against my composition.  To be able to achieve a nice juicy look to the back grounds meanwhile tying them into the painting themselves.  It may look easy but you have to think out each stroke and color before applying to the canvas.

Beginner Oil Painting Class Demo by artist Pat Meyer

$150

Yesterday was beginner class 101.  it is always hard to try something new and get it.  The first time to play the piano my fingers went to all the wrong keys and it was so frustrating.  Dedicating myself to practice daily started giving me the confidence to move on to actually play the piano but it was after much concentrated practice.  When starting to paint it all seems so weird but it you stay at it for a period of time you will see great improvement.  When looking back over the years at paintings that were done many times you see your improvement.

Yesterday was the first workshop of the new year and what fun we had painting the daisies.  We learned about how to create flow, focal, colorful backgrounds, values and of course drawing.
The problem with daises is that they have a million little petals and everyone wants to paint them all. The trick is values and a few important petals.
