Paint Party Friday - Landscape

I'm excited to be participating in another Paint Party Friday

I've worked on a few different projects this week. My biggest accomplishment was finishing the mixed media landscape I shared last week, adding the final fibers and beads.


Pin It


For this photo I have laid the mat over the painting to give the idea of what it will look like when I get the framing completed. 



I also worked quite a bit on the Strathmore online class, Doodles Unleashed by Traci Bautista. While I'm enjoying the challenge, my so called "finished" pieces leave me less than thrilled. LOL! 



One intuitive watercolor became these Artist Trading Cards. I like this version MUCH more than the original finished piece. I'll add some more doodling on them, and see how it works out. :)

Wow love your painting with the beads and your ATCs are wonderful!!!!

Anne said...

gorgeous, rich and vivid. I love it!

Phoenix Peacock said...

I'm actually really drawn into your intuitive painting. Sometimes it is just nice to not have pieces that are overworked! If for no other reason than to release the pressure of the idea of "finished"

Annie Smith said...

I've just discovered this artist trading card craze. How cool! Loving the feisty colors.

Thanks for visiting my blog!

Daniele Valois said...

now that is freaking gorgeous. All those beads and string! Love love love!!!

Carola Bartz said...

I love your painting with all the added beads - how beautiful!

Did you cut those ATCs from a watercolor painting of yours? That's what I understand from your post - it's a splendid idea and I sure like it.
It's good to see you here at PPF - your artwork is so beautiful.
