Art Lover's Chair

Art Lover's Chair
(12 x 12 oil)

What a great way to spend a rainy morning!
Inside a warm and cheerful room
with beautiful light,
kindred spirits
and a lot of

*about 2 hours*
First...blow off the nerves...just dive in!
Second....decide what to paint
Third....take a few photos and look through viewfinder for composition ideas.
Fourth....sketch a thumbnail.
Fifth....measure and remember your perspective lessons.
Sixth....make a larger sketch and remember the values.
Seventh....for gosh sakes get some paint on the canvas!
Eighth...take a stroll around and see what others are doing.
Ninth....look with fresh eyes at my work...make adjustments.
Tenth....Breathe and Give Thanks for the Opportunity no matter the result!
